Leading Belgian EMS Provider Connectronics Continues Investment in Tecnomatix Manufacturing Process Management Solutions with eMPower Purchase

HERZLIA, Israel – February 23, 2005 – Tecnomatix Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ:TCNO), the driving force in manufacturing process management (MPM), today announced that leading Belgian electronics manufacturing services (EMS) firm Connectronics N.V. has purchased additional licenses of Tecnomatix eMPower™ solutions to meet its assembly program generation, shop floor documentation and repair station management needs.

The company has recently purchased several licenses of the eM-Execution Quality Management Package to supplement its existing eMPower for Electronics implementation at its Belgian operations. eM-Execution provides knowledge transfer capabilities from the shop floor to the manufacturing decision makers, and ultimately to customers through web portals by using real-time views, reports and messages. Quality management helps improve operator productivity by reducing inspection and rework times with graphical tools and a paperless data exchange environment.

By implementing additional quality management solutions—a critical component in achieving Six Sigma quality levels—Connectronics expects to be able to increase throughput and product quality, turning raw test data and repair actions into intelligent, actionable repair knowledge in real time. And by creating a robust level of manufacturing visibility, the eM-Execution Quality Management Package will drive process improvements—including improved yields, reduced scrap, reduced WIP times, regulatory compliance and more.

Connectronics is a subsidiary of Connect Systems International NV, and specializes in PCB assembly, with an emphasis on fast prototyping, the assembly and test of printed circuit boards, and the production and test of sub-modules and end-of-line products.

“Tecnomatix has been a valued partner of Connectronics since 2000,” said Jos Waerenburgh, plant manager at Connectronics. “Tecnomatix has proven its ability to support our growth objectives and FES needs over the years, so this latest investment was easy for us. Assuming everything goes well with this implementation, we expect to roll out eM-Execution across all our sites.”

“We are pleased to have had the opportunity to work so closely with Connectronics over the years,” said Jaron Lotan, president and chief executive officer, Tecnomatix Technologies. “Their latest purchase continues a longstanding relationship that has seen a great deal of growth. Our eMPower solutions have helped Connectronics N.V. manage this growth, remain competitive and solve many of the challenges facing the EMS industry.”
