Investment in New Line at Contract Production

By Contract Production
schedule13th Dec 17

Contract Production Limited is a contract electronics manufacturer working in partnership with many sectors of industry to supply top quality pcb assembly and electronics manufacturing services.  We partner companies across a range of industries, from instrumentation and defence to subsea and environmental monitoring to provide expert manufacturing support from prototypes to production.

We have established a first class reputation in the industry by putting traditional customer service and quality assurance at the heart of everything we do, be it prototypes, SMT placement, or final assembly and testing.

November will see the installation of a new production line at our assembly plant in Pickering, North Yorkshire.

We are investing over £250,000 to ensure that we can fully support the designs and technology being used by our customers.  We have partnered with Panasonic to provide the placement machine for the line.  Panasonic are a well known and trusted brand in electronics and this investment will significantly improve the capacity that we can offer, and reduce downtime between jobs.

Having taken over as Managing Director earlier this year, Simon Norris explained “the growth in new customers over the last year has significantly stretched our ageing SMT line, so the investment that we are making in our new production line will offer benefits to all of our customers.”

“As a Contract Electronics Manufacturer it is important that our line offers capability, flexibility and reliability. Our line can be expected to be making different products for different customers every day of the week, so the ability to change quickly between products is a key element in improving service levels to our customers. The Panasonic AM100 placement machine gives us a high-mix SMT solution, that is to say it is a great “all rounder” offering us speed and capability with quick changeover between jobs.  We are all very excited about our new line and can’t wait to get it installed and working for our customers to see it in action.”
