About Us

A brief introduction to who we are and what we do.

Providing Exceptional Service for Over 30 years

  • We are rich in history with a core team that has been together since the early 1990′s.  The founders of Freedom CAD Services were also founders of Mosher Design Services,  Alternate Circuit Design Technologies, and e2E Corporation, all successful and recognized service bureaus.  Freedom CAD is ITAR certified (registrant code: M23521) and certified as a Small Woman-Owned Business under the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program.

    Our mission is simple: Provide the best service and the highest quality while delivering on time.

    To execute on that mission our designers are well versed in rules-driven, highly constrained, high speed, analog, power supply, military, medical and RF design technology, to name a few. We run on the Cadence and Mentor suites – the two highest-end design software companies in North America.

    A Founding Team That’s Been Together for Over 30 Years

    Our roots go deep.  Freedom CAD was founded by leaders of some of the industries most influential and well regarded PCB Design & Engineering firms to become one of the largest PCB Service Bureaus in the US and voted as 1 of the top 3 companies to work for in New Hampshire.

    1980-1997: ACDT/MDS

    Alternate Circuit Design Technologies/Mosher Design Services

    Stemming from a firm foundation of electro-mechanical and PCB design & layout knowledge early in Lauren Mosher and Lou Primmer’s careers, a joint partnership was born. Lou, former President and Co-owner of ACDT and Lauren, a senior partner in MDS appointed Lou as Director of Marketing and Sales/Senior Partner/Co-Owner. Working beside MDS founders Ronald and Carol Mosher, the new management team consisting of Lou, Lauren and Roland Cossette allowed the company to flourish as a premier PCB layout house.

    1997-1999: Praegitzer

    Praegitzer Corporation

    Praegitzer Corp, lead by Robert Praegitzer and Matt Bergeron had a vision of merging premier PCB service operations under one umbrella organization to augment their manufacturing of PCBs. The plan was successful, merging 14 design service houses, including Mosher Design Services, into one. Lou and Lauren managed the Eastern United States Design Services division.

    1999-2000: e2E

    e2E Corporation

    Tyco acquired Praegetzer and divested the design teams, this unique situation allowed e2E to be born. e2E was a premiere design services business with not only a team of some of the most talented PCB designers in the United States but also augmenting this team was a large team of Signal Integrity engineers.

    2000 – 2003: Plexus

    Plexus Corporation

    Plexus, having witnessed the success of Praegetzer, envisioned expanding their successful engineering team with e2E’s vast talent. The saga was successful and profitable – for a time.  As anyone in the PCB industry can tell you, 2003 was a horrific year in the technology world as a whole. Plexus divested some of their non engineering and manufacturing divisions to focus on their core competencies.

    2003 – Present: FCS

    Freedom CAD Services, Inc.

    Freedom CAD Services Inc. was born through hiring the best of the best designers that were divested from Plexus to form an employee owned “C” corporation. Taking the top talent and the knowledge of service and technology that came with those individuals, we have flourished both organically and through successful mergers. Merging talent from Rupert Engineering, Jardon Engineering and ACAE have strengthened and diversified our core competency. Adding senior staff, Scott Miller, Eddie Broyles and Don Duncan in the mid 2000’s launched us into the engineering field, further diversifying our customers and services.

    Freedom CAD strives to meet the highest standards set by the companies and individuals that laid the foundation for our company.  Our company’s success is uniquely & intimately tied to the success of our customers – our goal is to be a partner in your success.
