8. Golden Sample => 9. Component Procurement => 10. Production => 11. Quality Control => 12. Marketing & After Sales
We specialise in following areas:
All PCBs are designed in house or are contracted from European companies who have facilities both onshore and offshore for higher volume projects. We do not to source components directly from Asia and all circuits are bare board tested prior to being built on. We offer an array of finishes, technologies and delivery options to suit whatever requirements you may have.
Full Component Procurement
From your Bill of Materials (BOM) we can procure all the items required for a specific assembly, including the PCB and any associated enclosure or fabricated parts. Our procurement experience ensures customers benefit from a comprehensive & fixed cost for the entire build. All components are purchased from manufacturer franchised distribution making them fully traceable. We do not buy outside of franchise without prior agreement and then we only use trusted and verified sources. This is only done if component lead-time is an issue or there is an obsolescence problem.
We have the ability to turn your prototypes around to tight deadlines. With access to several PCB companies who can offer short lead-times so that we can get your boards into production within a short time period. We will always advise several options to enable you to make the right choice between lead-time and cost. For example, there is no point ordering a fully populated PCB within a short period of time if the components not easily available. We pro-actively manage projects, ensuring that your pre-production costs are kept to manageable levels.
Sub Contract Manufacturing
We provide a complete sub contract manufacturing service which can accommodate production for volume quantities down to small batch. Utilising equipment to produce both through hole (PTH), surface mount (SMT) and mixed technology assemblies. We also offer full chassis build, cable and harness assembly and testing to customer specification. Design services are either in house or available through one of our trusted partners.
Our ‘can do’ attitude means we never fail to deliver.
