Benchmark Electronics, Inc, a global provider of engineering, design, and manufacturing services, and CoreKinect, a specialist in scalable hardware design, have partnered to enable customers across the Internet of Things (IoT) landscape to design, engineer, and manufacture products in the USA.

CoreKinect selected Benchmark’s electronics engineering and manufacturing facility in Phoenix, Arizona to leverage the benefits of the emerging ‘Silicon Desert’. Arizona has become a magnet for technology companies, which are drawn to the region by a lower cost of doing business and a more affordable quality of life for employees.

Furthermore, the large and educated population of Arizona provides a growing talent pool of highly-skilled workers that can support growing technology industries.

Together with Benchmark, CoreKinect can now provide fully customised hardware solutions for IoT ecosystems, allowing customers to achieve scale without compromising on quality or flexibility. Leveraging its engineering and manufacturing expertise, Benchmark will work with CoreKinect to produce IoT solutions that solve complex challenges in a wide range of industries such as aerospace and defense, industrial, medical, survelliance, and smart city.
