 NCAB Group USA’s Quality Manager Discusses PCB Cost Drivers at SMTA Luncheon

NCAB Group USA Quality Manager Holly Freve recently presented at the SMTA Space Coast Chapter September Technical Luncheon.

Freve presented “Cost drivers in PCB production.” She offered an in-depth discussion about board size, layer count, copper weight, manufacturing yield, and more factors that drive costs in PCB production.

Freve has 26 years of quality and customer service experience in the circuit board industry. She began her circuit board industry career back in 1989 as a quality engineer for Micofab in Amesbury, MA, working in the inspection and testing area. Her next position was at EMC, also in Amesbury, where she worked in a variety of positions in both quality and production engineering.

Freve joined PD Circuits in 2005 as part of the quality assurance management team, focusing on customer quality issues and resolution. PD Circuits was acquired by NCAB in 2012. Freve is now the Quality Manager for NCAB Group USA, responsible for the continuous improvement of quality and service to all NCAB customers. She is a certified IPC-A-600H inspector and recently received her Six Sigma Green belt.
