We opened our doors in 1990 with three simple goals:
- Think like an OEM by treating each assembly as if it were our own product going to market.
- Do more for customers than simply build and deliver their products.
- Have fun bringing customers’ ideas to life.
Glen Wayne, our founder, had a passion for electronics ever since receiving a Radio Shack electronics kit from his Dad when he was eight years old (which is now proudly displayed in his office). This lead to building actual working electronic boards and fun projects like hooking up the Christmas tree lights to music, making TV’s, radios, and alarms for bicycles. You could say, he started his first electronics company in 1972 when he was eleven. At 16, he continued with that passion by repairing all types of electronics for friends and neighbors in his parent’s garage. At age 17, he went to work at Radio Shack, doing retail sales and repairs on returned electronics equipment. He attended college in Southern California and worked on his engineering degree, then went to work in distribution as product applications engineer helping to assist OEMs with product selection on new designs. After 10 years, he felt he could better assist engineers with their designs and production needs if he started his own company.
Established in 1990, the companies focus was on engineering support and outsourced manufacturing services like complete BOM production kitting. When the industry moved from thru-hole to surface mount production, it created the demand for Turn-Key SMT solutions. This led Glen, at the age of 27, to start NAS Electronics Manufacturing a EMS provider offering a wide variety of outsourced production services.
Thirty years later, NAS is now in a new state of the art manufacturing facility in beautiful Las Vegas, Nevada. We are happy to report that Glen still has his passion for electronics and continues to work closely with all our customers daily to make their “fun projects” come to life.
