Poised for sustained growth across sectors

A combination of inhouse investment and training, plus a new European manufacturing partnership, means Jaltek is perfectly positioned to support its growing customer base.

One benefit of outsourcing manufacturing is removing the need to invest in expensive capital equipment and people. Jaltek does that for its customers. To provide customers with the most up to date, efficient and cost-effective solutions, Jaltek constantly reviews its technology line-up which includes surface mount equipment for volumeproduction and a dedicated new product introduction line, all supplied by Blakell Europlacer.

The multifunction SMT pick-and-place platforms are designed to provide high levels of flexibility. The prototyping line and main production lines are compatible, allowing prototypes to seamlessly transfer. Jaltek is continually upgrading its capabilities with recent investments including production, test and inspection kit.

As part of its growth strategy, Jaltek also increased its manufacturing space by 50 per cent, as well as recruiting production, engineering and account management staff, to meet increased demand for electronic system assembly. The new unit is fully operational.

Jaltek recently joined hands with SG Automotive, a Slovenian EMS provider known for manufacturing printed circuit board assemblies. The companies signed a collaboration agreement to support demand from European and UK markets. Managing director, Steve Pittom, said: “We’ve found a top-tier professional partner within the EU who aligns perfectly with our goals and sustained growth acrosssectors. With SG Automotive’s extensive experience we can now cater to customers seeking IATF 16949 certification. They have a stellar track record in the automotive sector.”

Business manager, Steve Blythe, added: “We have expanded our team to support growing activity across the board and our in-house training ensures all employees work to the industry’s highest standards as per the Institute of Printed Circuits. This, along with our recent partnership enables us to continue delivering our vision towards world class competitiveness and productivity.”
