Electronic Manufacturing Services

KeyTronicEMS differentiates itself in the electronic manufacturing services industry by providing a versatile mix of highly skilled engineering personnel in multiple disciplines. KeyTronicEMS's experienced engineering teams provide complete turnkey engineering and product management.


The combination of our engineers and program management led teams enables us to conceptualize, design, prototype, test and ramp your product successfully into production and through its entire life cycle.

Product Development 

KeyTronicEMS has the capabilities and skills needed to assist your product designers at any phase of the product development cycle. We can provide complete product design that begins with a sketch from your marketing group, or we can assist in completing designs your engineering group has begun or we can provide that last bit of DFM advice that brings the product to successful production launch. We are also experts at re-design for product cost reduction.

Our services include a formal new product introduction (NPI) process, which includes development methodologies: FMEA and DOE, Design for Margin/Test to Failure, and Management Checkpoint Reviews.

Electro-Mechanical Engineering 

Our mechanical engineers are some of the best in the industry. We have years of experience in the design and production of complex electro-mechanical assemblies. Our engineers use the latest in computer aided design, with multiple seats of ProE and Solid Works. We have expertise in 3 dimensional data base and solid models.

Electrical Engineering 

We excel in design for manufacturability of electrical products including software, firmware, and PCA design. Our electrical engineers are experts in printed circuit board design and assembly utilizing the latest electronic assembly technologies such as, chip on board and ball-grid array, as well as standard assembly techniques.

Tool Engineering 

Our in-house plastic tool design and build capabilities are unique in that we provide complete turnkey service for tooling procurement all from our Spokane, WA headquarters. 

Focusing on finding the lowest total cost for our customers means we build the tool in the geographic locations that match the tool to the abilities in that region. Difficult, complex and lead-time challenged tools are designed and built in Spokane. Simple, less difficult tools are built in China.

Plastics Engineering 

Our plastics engineering group is second to none. In addition to the standard design and design for manufacturability services to support our in house and global tooling sources, we also offer state of the art software for mold simulation processes to facilitate a faster time to market with an accurate and dependable production tool.

Metals Engineering 

Our turn key engineering services includes precision metal stamping, fabrication and finishing utilizing industry standard design techniques. Our capabilities include stamping, punching, shearing, bending, forming, as well as paint, powder coat, e-coat and plating. Our engineering staff can guide you through the basis of metal fabrication all the way through very complex and intricate finished welded assemblies.

Prototyping Engineering 

In order to meet our customer's aggressive time to market requirements, we staff experience model-makers from our in-house modeling facility utilizing; SLA, CNC Mill, lathe, paint shop and copper-clad PCB Mill.

Manufacturing Process Engineering 

KeyTronicEMS's manufacturing engineers support the production activities by taking full responsibility for; line layout, fixture design, picture specifications and process control plans. Our engineers specialize in transferring difficult processes from our customer's factories to our factories.

Quality Engineering 

KeyTronicEMS's team of Quality Engineers are involved from the beginning of the project, assuring consistency in manufacturing. Our Quality Engineers work with our customers to define quality requirements; In-Coming, In-Process, as well as Out of Box quality are measured on a weekly basis in order to find ways to improve our manufacturing processes. This data in addition to any customized requested reports, is tracked by product and facility, and communicated to our customer.
