Wesley Brandon, President CTEMS

At CTEMS we endeavor to be the most trusted systems integrator in helping you source and assemble custom cable, electronic assemblies, and electromechanical box builds which are transforming our digital world. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to work with some of the most brilliant minds in tech who are creating technologies and hardware that is transforming our digital world across electric vehicles and mobility, semiconductor, medical devices, and industrial hardware. On top of that I am part of one of the most diligent and dedicated teams in Silicon Valley who assist the companies we work with in building incredible technologies. If you have not had the opportunity to work with us, allow me to highlight a few elements that set us apart and ensure that we help you and your company achieve success.

Leadership Pillars:

  • Stewardship: At CTEMS when we are entrusted with a project, we treat it as our own. This is reflected in our attention to detail, focus on sourcing and assembling exactly to your specifications and design, and ensuring that we meet and exceed your expectations for quality and on-time delivery. Most of our customers have been working with us for over a decade and we work extremely hard to earn their trust everyday with every assembly we build.
  • Excellence: As an ISO9001 Certified Company, we work extremely hard to foster a culture of continuous improvement. Where appropriate we will offer improvement recommendations on your projects to improve performance, reduce lead-times, and achieve potential cost savings.
  • Ingenuity: We look for opportunities behind every problem or challenge. Using our collective experience and creativity, we rarely get stuck or fail to deliver on a deadline. When you work with us, you will benefit from working with a team that will find a way to over come issues, set-backs, and unplanned obstacles to make sure your assemblies are delivered on time and your team succeeds.
  • Flexibility: Our lean manufacturing techniques enable us to support our customers with a wide range of assembly types as well as assembly volumes. We are keen to work on prototype volumes, medium runs, and larger volumes between 1-5 million units.

These four pillars are also our company values and we work to bring them to life with every opportunity we have to earn your business.

We look forward to building with you!
