Process control/management

Our Process Control and Management Team will review the data and documents to ensure completion and fit for manufacture. Any error or inaccuracies will be checked, and potential suggestions will be made for efficiency through production where necessary.

Costing and agreement

In line with our client’s expectations, the reviewed data will be loaded into our system via our process control team. The cost and lead time of the job will be estimated by our Quoting Team through our network of trusted suppliers. From there, a quote will be submitted to the customer for agreement and approval.


The job will be loaded onto the system and our Engineering Team will fully review it to be signed off. From there, they will liaise with the customer on any BOM queries, and review tooling required for production processes.


Once the kitting and stores have received the components, the job is programmed into the relevant machines. Once complete, the production will start.

For surface mount, all components and parts are picked and checked before loading onto the machine. We complete a “first off” process, running a small batch of boards through the SMT for inspection to detect defects or errors.

For conventional assembly, all components and parts are picked and checked before given to our technicians. As with SMT, all boards will run through each phase of production, going through checks, inspection and testing if required.

Process control and supply chain

After sign off, tooling and stencils will be ordered and production/inspections packs released to all departments.

At the same time, supply chain begin purchasing components to arrive in time for production to meet delivery dates.

Final product and shipping

Once the product has been approved it will make its way to the dispatch team who will arrange for delivery via our chosen network of trusted logistic partners / suppliers. With a good reputation for delivery service and open communication, they are trusted to deliver our products throughout the UK and around the world.
