4 ways we’ve earned our reputation for quality PCB production

PCB Quality

If you’ve already been working with us a while, you’ll know that PCB quality is paramount to us but how do we ensure PCB Quality?

Our quality PCB production is our biggest differentiator from so many competitors out there on the market. It’s also one of the main reasons our customers keep coming back.

If you haven’t already worked with us, you may well have heard about our reputation for PCB Quality.

But how do we constantly ensure that we are performing ahead of the game when it comes to delivering high quality, reliable printed circuit boards?

1. We buy in high quality materials from quality suppliers

No one ever made a high quality PCB product out of poor quality materials.

We have specialist buyers that work with our carefully selected network of suppliers to buy in the best quality boards, solder and components to ensure that the resulting printed circuit boards are made from reliable materials.

We have a longstanding network of suppliers that we work closely with.

This doesn’t just help us to ensure the quality of our components as we purchase them, it also helps us to maintain quality and consistency in the supply of our raw materials. Of course, there’s the added bonus of enabling us to protect our own supply chain (and that of our customers) against potential supply issues on the horizon.

2. High quality controls and traceability on every PCB

We ensure that our materials are all traceable. We hold both ISO9001 and AS9100, which require traceability throughout the entire production process.

However, our objective is never just to meet the minimum requirements to obtain the certifications. We go above and beyond to deliver true traceability.

This was apparent last year when we received only 3 minor non-conformance issues. That means there were just three issues that slightly varied from best practice but made no difference to the resulting product (way less than most PCB manufacturers receive).

3. Rigorous testing protocols

In addition to sourcing high-quality materials and maintaining traceability throughout the production process, we implement rigorous testing protocols to ensure the reliability and functionality of our printed circuit boards. Each PCB undergoes comprehensive testing procedures, including electrical testing, functional testing, and quality assurance checks.

Our state-of-the-art testing facilities are equipped with advanced testing equipment and software, allowing us to detect potential defects or inconsistencies early in the production process.

4. Continuous improvement mindset

At our company, we strive for improvement in all aspects of our operations, including PCB production. We have built a culture of innovation and continuous improvement, encouraging our team members' morale to identify areas for enhancement and implement proactive solutions.

We continuously refine our production processes through regular training programs, process optimisation initiatives, and feedback mechanisms to achieve greater efficiency, consistency, and quality.


In conclusion, our reputation for quality PCB production is built on a foundation of excellence, resilience and dedication to customer satisfaction. By sourcing high-quality materials, maintaining strict quality controls and traceability, implementing rigorous testing protocols, and embracing a continuous improvement mindset, we ensure that every printed circuit board that leaves our facility meets the highest standards of quality and reliability. As a result, our customers trust us to deliver PCBs that perform consistently and exceed their expectations, making us their preferred partner for all their PCB manufacturing needs.
