Our Company was founded in 1973 by Dave Demarest as Demarest Associates, and we’ve been serving the Pacific Northwest Microelectronic community ever since. In the early days, Dave concentrated on the hybrid or “chip & wire” area of electronic assembly, and gradually added equipment and supplies for the PCB portion of the business. Major customers at the time, and still, include Boeing’s Microelectronics Center, Sundstrand (now Honeywell), ICI (now Crane Interpoint), Tektronix, Intel, Micron, etc.

In 1990 Steve Kirby joined Dave in the Portland office, and several years later took ownership as Dave enjoyed retirement. Steve added his name to the Company resulting in the current Kirby & Demarest moniker. Then in 1996 Alan Siebenthall joined the team adding unbridled enthusiasm and attention to detail to his customers requirements. As a Manufacturers Representatives, we bring to high technology companies an array of products utilized in the design, manufacturer and test of circuit board assemblies, hybrid circuits, and semiconductors. However these products are only the tip of the proverbial iceberg as it is our process knowledge, attention to detail and follow-up that sets us apart.
