Contract Production Ltd, the North Yorkshire-based manufacturer, has secured its largest ever customer order weeks after investing in new technology.
Contract Production, based in Pickering, manufactures a range of sub-contract electronic products and printed circuit board assemblies for a wide variety of industries. This can be one-off prototypes, going up to volumes in their 10,000s.
A recent investment and installation of the AM100 Panasonic Pick and Place line enabled the company to increase its output by 400%.
This new capacity on its manufacturing floor enabled the company to win a six-figure overseas contract to supply more than 1000 sets of circuit boards for an overseas customer.
The new CP production line features printed circuit boards and can place up to 30,000 components per hour.
Simon Norris, managing director of Contract Production Ltd, said: We knew the new pick and place technology would allow us to compete for larger orders, but this has exceeded even our most optimistic starts for this financial year.
The new production line has helped us to add an extra 30-40 weeks of working capacity to the business annually and this latest contract will fill several of those from the outset.
