Made in England, Shipped to China!

ESD PCB Assembly Specialist are proud to have recently completed an order for sub-contract electronic assembly of a unit that is finished in the UK and shipped to China for inclusion in a Weaving Loom.

Excellent quality and competitive pricing of the assembly were key. ESD sourced the PCBs and components, built the SMT assembly which then went through our AOI inspection process prior to despatch. The UK customer is delighted to keep the work in the Midlands instead of subcontracting overseas, where they would have little direct influence over the finished quality.

"ESD PCB Assembly Specialist were able to offer us a keen price and supply a good quality product which enables us to compete in this highly competitive business using a UK electronics manufacturer."

ESD used their considerable buying and manufacturing expertise and experience to supply this at a highly competitive price, and are looking forward to more business returning to the UK from Far Eastern manufacture.
