Large / medium scale production (500+ units per build) is handled by our Far East partner, Tradpost Technology in Hong Kong & China. We have been working with Tradpost since 1999 & have a very established relationship. Approximately 80% of our production is built by Tradpost.
Medium / small scale production is handled in-house at our Gloucestershire premises.
We are happy to support the early stages of your product by building prototypes at zero profit.
We can build locally until quantities become suitable for bulk Far East manufacture.
We have been building cable assemblies in China since 2002.
Far East costs
We expect to be approximately 20-30% below UK prices of comparable quality.
Local project management
All project management is handled at our Gloucestershire premises, so you always have local contact.
We meticulously check your BOMs, specifications, test procedures, etc. Experience has shown it is essential for the data package to be correct and comprehensive before contemplating manufacture, especially if production is destined for the Far East.
Local technical support
Alternate component sourcing in the event of obsolescence or shortage.
80% of components are bought locally by our own staff. We ship weekly to the Far East.
