One company has been able to secure a key hire for Boston management jobs.
Implant Sciences Corporation, a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security and defense markets, has hired Jonathan Saunders to become Manufacturing Manager.
Saunders was most recently Plant Manager at EIT Northeast Operations, a manufacturer of printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) and complex system assemblies, where he managed a 40% revenue increase. Prior, he served for ten years in several positions with Sanmina-SCI, a global contract manufacturer of top level electronic assemblies.

Implant Sciences provides next generation Explosives Trace Detection (ETD) technology. In January 2013, the Company became only the third ETD manufacturer, and the sole American-owned company, to have product approval from the US Transportation Security Administration. Implant Sciences has developed proprietary technologies used in its commercial explosives and drugs trace detection systems, which ship to a growing number of locations domestically and internationally.
“In fiscal 2013, we shipped more ETDs than in any other year in our Company’s history, a trend we expect will continue. We believe that the regulatory approvals we’ve recently received will prove to be key drivers of growth. Having moved into our new 58,000 square foot state-of-the-art manufacturing facility last summer, we now have the capacity to produce the quantities necessary to meet our expected future demand,” stated Implant Sciences’ Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Bill McGann. “Jon is an important hire for our company to support this rapid growth in manufacturing.”
“We welcome Jon, who has a strong track record of managing high-tech manufacturing for companies with rapid revenue and production growth. We believe that his experience will be valuable in his position as Manufacturing Manager. As the only American-owned ETD manufacturer to have product qualification from the TSA, we are proud of our commitment to manufacture in the USA,” added Brenda Baron, Vice President of Manufacturing Operations.
