Zentech Manufacturing, Inc. (Zentech) is a privately owned small business company located in Baltimore, MD. It was established in 1998, is among the most highly certified military electronics contract manufacturers in the United States, and has consistently proven itself to be one of the premier contract manufacturing businesses in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Zentech has 18+ years of stability and continuous growth ensuring confidence that we will be a long term valued partner to the Navy.
Zentech is capable of providing support in the following functional areas:
3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.7, 3.9, 3.10, 3.11, 3.14, 3.17.
Expanded functional areas which are covered by our subcontractors include:
3.8, 3.12, 3.15, 3.18, 3.19, and 3.20.
For the purposes of our submission, we are addressing only those functional areas for which Zentech has specific experience. Zentech will provide qualified personnel, materials, facilities, equipment, test instrumentation, data collection and analysis, hardware and software, and other relevant services as required at the task order level.
Zentech provides a full suite of design, manufacture, test, and repair services:
Our 42,000 square foot facility houses all of our management, engineering, manufacturing, testing and quality functions, including approximately 120 staff. The building was designed specifically for electronic contract manufacturing services. The main production floor includes state-of-the-art flooring specifically designed to ensure protection against electro-static discharge (ESD). A positive air pressure system ensures that the air pressure is stabilized above that of the outside atmosphere, thereby preventing the introduction of airborne debris at every entranceway (FOD). Temperature and humidity are monitored against optimal conditions for electronic assembly (SMT), automatically sending electronic alert notifications to facilities engineers when operation and control limits are approached. More than half the facility is designed and furnished with workbenches, machines and infrastructure supporting flexible manufacturing initiatives, providing flexibility for increased capacity and/or additional customization as required. The building is currently built-out to 80%, leaving 8,400 square feet still available for increased capacity and/or additional customization as required.
Zentech currently operates at less than 33% of its effective capacity. This calculation is based upon the following:
Zentech implements best manufacturing processes, such as:
Zentech SMT Operations Custom Configurable Functional Testing
Zentech resources and processes result in mission critical high quality as evidenced by:
Zentech is widely recognized within the aerospace, UAV, RF, Radar and IED Defeat/Detect communities for our performance on mission-critical electronics in support of our nation’s Warfighter. For example, Zentech provides electronics and testing in support of the following programs: RQ-7 Shadow UAV, the Carrier Unmanned Targeted Large Area Strike System (CUTLASS) UAV, Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) F-35, Husky Mounted Detection System Ground Penetrating Radar (HMDS-GPR) and Tactical Armored Patrol Vehicle (TAP/V).
Directly related to the U.S. Navy, Zentech has a U.S. Navy dedicated flexible circuit assembly and test work cell constructed to support our ten+ year engagement with L-3 Chesapeake Sciences to manufacture dual towed arrays. This includes all potting and encapsulation processing, communications testing, and underwater depth simulation processes. Additionally, Zentech holds a five year BPA (Blanket Purchase Agreement) with NSWC-DD and we have performed successfully against approximately twenty Task Orders to date on this BPA.
Zentech’s unique capabilities ensure mission success (shown below).
Our team functional area capabilities are shown in Table C.1.1-1.
Zentech will perform a minimum of 51% of the required work on each small business task order and plans to be an active participant in the SeaPort-e program. We plan to submit on all task order RFPs which address our areas of expertise. For the purposes of the IDIQ, we have selected functional areas that align with the skill sets and experience of our personnel. However, we have additional resources in order to be able to respond to more than just the identified functional areas. This section (C.1) and Section D provides an overview of our general approach to executing any type of technical contract. Section C.2 presents our overall approach to technical tasks, in some cases providing an example of such a task instead of an approach (since the approach is similar to other task approaches), and in some cases we present both. Section C.3 presents additional representative samples of previous tasks for some of the designated functional categories. Section C.4 presents our representative personnel matrix demonstrating capabilities in the functional areas. Appendix A presents our four key personnel resumes.
