Aerospace and Military

Newbury has both the expertise and facilities to meet the demands of the aerospace and military sector, and so many of the UK’s strongest and most recognisable brands work with us. Our vast experience and breadth of services enables us to offer advanced processes in specialised areas and deliver precise and reliable military and aerospace manufacturing.

Newbury Electronics is able to work to IPC-610-A class 3 with our own in-house trainers. We also hold AS9100 accreditation and continue to develop our status as an exceptional contract electronic manufacturer.


We work with companies of all sizes in a wide variety of industrial sectors. Newbury specialise in manufacturing low to medium volumes of industrial electronics, supporting a diverse range of products and technologies in the sector. Our optimised manufacturing facility, international partnerships and customer satisfaction has led to many long-term relationships in the Industrial sector.

Working with our sister company, Newbury Innovation, we continue to refine our processes to ensure that we provide our customers with an unrivalled service at any stage in the development process, from initial product design right through to electronics manufacture.


The technology and complexity of electronic assemblies are way beyond the capability of DIY assemblers or small workshops. Complex PCBs with closely spaced pads and fine pitched components need specialist machinery to solder paste, place components and reflow solder joints. Equally demanding is the inspection process, which requires expensive specialist equipment such as 3D automatic optical inspection machines (AOI). A quality PCB fabrication and assembly service will pay for itself many times over by minimising the time expended on detecting, identifying, and fixing assembly faults, and providing you with a product guaranteed to last the distance.

Decide on the factors that are important to you and review the capabilities of potential suppliers. Some suppliers only focus on medium or high-volume production and come up short when making prototypes. Some manufacturers only make prototypes, whereas others are poorly equipped and inexperienced. Avoid disappointment by properly researching CEMs before making your decision.

We are a leading manufacturer of both prototype and production quantities of PCB assemblies. We manufacture lots of prototypes and use state-of-the-art PCB technology to provide our clients with reliable, functional products. Our largest order is currently for 100,000 pcs per annum.

The following are just some headline technologies that we use in our PCB manufacturing processes:

1/ Online web-based quote and order. Full office-based quoting is available.
2/ Complete end to end digital manufacturing process.
3/ Direct imaging PCB manufacturing technology (= no photography).
4/ AOI at all relevant stages, including 3D.
5/ 10x SMD placement lines installed using the most modern technologies.
6/ In-house 5 axis CNC conformal coating service available.
7/ In-house solder paste stencil cutting service available.
8/ Automatic CNC selective soldering machines x 2.
9/ Automatic CNC depanelling.
10/ In-house high-power X-ray inspection.

Choose Newbury Electronics because we love what we do, are drawn to innovation and promise to work closely with you to fulfill all of your PCB requirements. We use the latest technology in all of our production processes and expect to create perfect PCBs for you every time.
