Sanmina-SCI Corporation (nasdaq|SANM), is a global electronics manufacturing services (EMS) provider headquartered in San Jose, California that serves original equipment manufacturers in technology-related industries such as communications and computer hardware. Sanmina-SCI has nearly 80 manufacturing sites. The company is the world’s largest independent manufacturer of backplanes.Fact|date=February 2007


The company was founded by Milan Mandarić and Jure Sola in 1980, as a printed circuit manufacturer. By the end of the 1980s, the company expanded to backplanes and subassemblies.

In December 2001, Sanmina acquired rival SCI Systems of Huntsville, Alabama for $6 billion in cash, stock, and debt. Although Sanmina was only half as large as SCI at the time, it was in a better financial position because its core telecommunications business was performing well, whereas SCI's lower-margin businesses such as personal computer manufacturing, were struggling.
