Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc. Re-Opens Texas Offices
October 6, 2003 (Austin, TX) –Wright Williams & Kelly (WWK), a software and consulting services company based in Pleasanton, California, announced today it has re-entered the Texas market with new offices in the Austin and Dallas areas. These offices will directly support WWK’s existing client base as well as be critical assets in expanding its consulting practice.
“New business opportunities, the efficiencies of the Internet, and a company reorganization have allowed WWK to reopen offices closed by previous management,” said Daren Dance, WWK’s Vice President of Technology. “We are excited about the signs of growth and the opportunities that we see in Texas and the surrounding region. These offices will allow us to strengthen our long-term relationships with International SEMATECH and electronics companies in the area.”
“I am very pleased to be able to offer our clients in the Southwest more direct access to our expert resources,” stated David Jimenez, WWK co-founder and President. “This is just the first step in meeting our customers’ needs for out-sourced services in manufacturing, assembly, and business cost optimization. We will have another major announcement in that area in the next week.”
WWK is a vital industry resource as its productivity and cost management tools are powerful antidotes to the effects of deflation and the lack of product pricing power. And, in the midst of pervasive overcapacity, WWK’s tools help clients profitably allocate capital and resources.
Today’s key challenge for semiconductor manufacturers is to sell the output of their leading-edge fabs. Not many have control of enough high volume chip markets to run a leading-edge fab at peak production. WWK can help to efficiently match process capacity and technology with expected sales volume.
Additionally, many other businesses are facing strategic milestones regarding upgrades, outsourcing, consolidation, or niche applications. These involve significant capital decisions. WWK’s tools and consultants can assist in making these decisions efficient and effective.
With more than 2,800 users worldwide, Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc. is the largest privately held operational cost management company serving technology-dependent and technology-driven companies. WWK maintains long-term relationships with prominent industry resources including International SEMATECH, SELETE, Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International (SEMI), and national labs and universities. Its client base includes most of the top 10 semiconductor manufacturers and equipment and materials suppliers as well as leaders in thin film record heads, magnetic media, flat panel displays, and solar panels.
WWK’s product line includes TWO COOL® for detailed process step level cost of ownership (COO) and overall equipment efficiency (OEE), PRO COOL® for process flow and test cell costing, Factory Commander® for full factory capacity analysis and activity based costing, and Factory Explorer® for cycle time reduction and WIP planning. Additionally, WWK offers a highly flexible product management software package that helps sales forces eliminate errors in product configuration and quotation processes.
