Sanmina Corporation is a global electronics manufacturing services (EMS) provider headquartered in San Jose, California that serves original equipment manufacturers in technology-related industries such as communications and computer hardware. Sanmina has nearly 80 manufacturing sites. The company is one of the world’s largest independent manufacturers of printed circuit boards and backplanes. The company features in the Fortune 500 list, ranked at 432. It holds a rank in the list for the 15th year. Sanmina was founded by Jure Sola and Milan Mandaric in 1980 as a printed circuit board manufacturer. During the 1980s, the company expanded into manufacturing backplanes and subassemblies for the telecommunications industry. During the 1990s, the company grew significantly, producing complete products for major OEM companies and completing a number of strategic acquisitions. Jure Sola became CEO and Chairman of Sanmina in 1991. The company completed an initial public offering on NASDAQ in 1993. In December 2001, Sanmina merged with SCI Systems of Huntsville, Alabama for $6 billion in cash, stock, and debt. Although Sanmina was only half as large as SCI at the time, it was in a better cash position because its core telecommunications business was performing well, whereas SCIs lower-margin businesses such as personal computer manufacturing, were struggling. Shortly after, Sanmina-SCI bought E-M Solutions, a bankrupt Fremont, California electronics manufacturer, for $110 million in cash. Then in early 2002, Sanmina acquired Viking Interworks of Rancho Santa Margarita for $15 million ($10.9 million in cash and 390,000 shares of Sanmina stock worth $10.26 per share at the time).
