       UK Design and Manufacture

Overview
Over the last twenty-five years we’ve built up a comprehensive range of resources and facilities which can be brought to bear on your project. We’re pretty unique in being able to offer UK design and manufacture at board and system level. We operate under the strict procedures of BS EN ISO 9001:2000, CE-marking our own product and attaining UL and FCC approvals on a project basis. We have forged long-standing relationships with key partners in the software and silicon sectors as well as with industry standards bodies.
