EMS efficiency cuts costs

Printed circuit board and contract electronics manufacturer, eXception EMS,  has enhanced efficiency in the supply and assembly of PCBs for the Eurotherm division of Invensys, saving it over £60k in the last 12 months.

With 250 varieties of PCBs required for its 30 plus product lines, Eurotherm needed a supplier who could produce high quality PCBs, with first class testing, extensive quality control and knowledgeable staff. After a review of a number of suppliers based on cost, quality, capability and service level, Eurotherm chose eXception EMS.

Commodity manager at Eurotherm, Graham Batchelor, said: “Our choice was based on more than just price. We focused on the ability of the supplier to respond quickly to our demands, source raw material and bare boards that would help us reduce costs, and had strong customer service, as well as the equipment and personnel needed to respond to our needs. eXception EMS ticked all those boxes.”

eXception EMS provides PCB assembly of 13 different boards that fit inside three of Eurotherm’s core products, with many products containing high layer count boards with multipleBGAs that require precise soldering control.
