IRVING, TX—Elcoteq, a European electronics manufacturing services company for the communications technology industry, has acquired NPRC Inc. (Carrollton, TX), a new product introduction services company. NPRC, newly named Elcoteq NPI Dallas, will retain NPRC's employees and facilities.

"NPRC is a logical first step in Elcoteq Americas' Communications Technology strategy," comments Doug Brenner, president of Elcoteq Americas.
