Leading the way in electronic manufacturing equipment and distribution, Altus Group have a clear goal, to provide a true and valued partnership to their customers.

They provided suggestions for a range of technologies to further improve our PCB inspection capabilities. Altus Group fully supported Garner Osborne’s decision-making process, lending their understanding of the printed circuit board industry and offerings from leading equipment manufacturers.

This resulted in Garner Osborne investing in two new pieces of equipment for our West Berkshire based factory.

Commenting on the investment with Altus Group, Steve Honeybun Garner Osborne’s CEM Operations Director said “Products are becoming more technically challenging to manufacture and components are becoming more complex and smaller.
