We constantly invest in new equipment and processes so that we can offer both high quality products and reliable service. By using the latest technologies for PCB fabrication, we are able to offer fast production times as well as fine-line PCBs.

Our capital expenditure year by year regularly exceeds 10% of our turnover.

In 2020/21 we achieved complete digitalisation of all PCB printing production processes.  This is the culmination of a journey that started 14 years ago. For our standard production, no photographic or screen printing processes are now used and problems caused by scratched photography, thermal expansion, damaged tooling holes, and handling are eliminated.

A high-light of the year 2021/2 is the installation of production machines capable of drilling holes down to 0.1 mm diameter.
