Solutions Group (UK) plc of Northampton has announced that it is launching a new company to become a major new player in the Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) industry. The new company, Precision Manufacturing Ltd - PML, is to provide high quality contract printed circuit board and box build assemblies for the electronics and electromechanical industries in the UK.
Services ranging from low volume rapid prototyping of printed circuit boards (PCBs) through to very high volume mass PCB manufacturing are on offer. Prototype boards can be manufactured in as little as three days using dedicated prototype high availability lines. Fully developed and tested designs can be mass produced with a line that can automatically place up to 45,000 components an hour.

PML provides a full service to companies designing and fabricating electronic devices. At the design stage PML's production engineers uses its considerable production engineering resources to fine-tune designs. This ensures a high quality fully developed final design which can be rapidly and repeatedly manufactured to produce finished products with high quality and reliability. Grant Lester, PML's dynamic managing director, spoke enthusiastically about the new company. Financial backing and engineering skills for PML are drawn from Lester's highly regarded Solutions Group (UK) plc.

We are experts at rapidly taking designs from the engineer's screen to reality and we are now offering our extensive expertise and skill to the UK electronics industry, announced Lester. We have invested heavily in automated equipment and robots to meet customer demands for economical fabrication spanning from low volume rapid prototypes to very high volume mass production. PML is a major asset for UK design and production companies. Eldon Lindsay, PML's director of sales, has sensed that PML's service will be a winner, our investment allows us to offer a nimble and agile service fulfilling the needs of a very broad sector of UK electronics. We can handle boards populated with virtually all component types and provide a flexible and consistent service at highly competitive prices.

Commenting on pricing and turnaround Lester concluded, We are providing a 'tier I' service at a 'tier III' price - we can do this because of our major investment in the flexible and capable automated machines available. PML can confidently better the majority of turnaround times and prices because of the mix of machinery coupled with the skill and experience of our highly trained staff. PML will be servicing clients in the UK. The company has the space and working capital to expand as it steadily grows in a carefully controlled way.
