About OEMPCBR

Description

OEM Printed Circuit Board Replacements (OEMPCBR) is a full-service electronic circuit board re-creation (reverse engineering) and manufacturing company providing aftermarket electronics support for owners of legacy fleet equipment.  OEMPCBR provides a high Return on Investment alternative to expensive and disruptive replacement of industrial manufacturing equipment.  This extends the operational life of specialized equipment when replacement parts are no longer being provided by the Original Equipment Manufacturer.  This also allows industrial equipment owners to both save money and redirect scarce capital resources into more effective and profitable investments within their manufacturing facilities and operations.

Mission Statement

OEMPBCR’s mission is to eliminate the need for replacement of large fleets of older, but still viable, industrial manufacturing equipment when the original manufacturer stops providing replacement circuit boards.

Old and new SCR Snubber Boards

History and Experience

OEMPCBR is owned and operated by Bryan K. Piernot, MSEE and Scott J. Piernot, PE.  In 2007, Bryan’s father-in-law, who worked at a local glass coating plant, approached Bryan with a simple SCR snubber circuit board for an aging and expensive to replace DC planar magnetron power supply. If more of these snubber boards could not be procured, the entire fleet of 60+ power supplies would have to be phased out and replaced. Bryan re-created the board and supplied ten boards at $180 each. The expensive power supplies were saved from the scrap heap and the company began reaping the benefits of extending the life of still otherwise viable and useful equipment. Bryan started receiving orders for additional snubber boards and also requests to re-create other boards for that same power supply cabinet, then additional reorders of those re-created boards.   Soon an entire replacement board set had been created. The useful life of over 60 pieces of equipment,  with a replacement cost of $60K per unit, has been extended over 8 years with Bryan's support.  Because these power supplies are still functioning in operational production and now have support, there are no plans to replace them any time soon.  The business concept became self-evident and Scott, a successful entrepreneur and private consulting engineer joined Bryan in business.
