Colonial Assembly & Design has an outstanding core team of experienced, tenured and dedicated employees, and it is my pleasure to welcome them to the Zentech team. CA&D offers tremendous design engineering, manufacturing, test and complex cable assembly capabilities that, when combined with Zentech’s current capabilities, provide a complete solution across the entire electronics engineering and manufacturing requirements matrix”.
