A flexible contract manufacturer with high delivery precision at a competitive cost
Do you want close cooperation and high delivery precision at a lower total cost? As one of the leading EMS suppliers in northern Europe, we offer PCBA, box build and testing of electronic products to market-leading companies in the world.
We have a “best fit philosophy” to determine in which of our factories the production fits best. Our first-class manufacturing capacity means that we have leading technical expertise and machinery, and the ability to handle significant variations in batch size, product complexity and service scope–right from PCBAs to subassemblies and box build of complete products. We also offer flexible logistics solutions such as deliveries directly to the end customer.
We consider the entire flow through our production, sourcing, and logistics, down to call-off size and lead time of each individual component. Our process-oriented holistic approach is a key element in our work and culture that ensures high quality and flexibility at lowest possible total cost and risk for both you and us.
The right contract manufacturing choice for better sourcing and logistics
Our supplier base is the basis for being able to offer customers with high demands a stable solution for all the materials in the product. Through our global network of suppliers, our sourcing organisation works continuously to reduce the customer’s total costs and minimise the risks in the supply chain. A large part of our competitiveness is based on our capability and knowledge in sourcing.

Compliance with IPC Class 2 and 3
Our factories meet the requirements for IPC standard Class 2 and Class 3, which are important in the EMS industry. This ensures that we as a contract manufacturer of electronic products have high quality and reliability of the products we manufacture. Employees in our factories regularly go through various IPC trainings.
Automated optical inspection (AOI) of each PCBA
Given all the errors that may occur during the manufacturing process of a PCBA, it is impossible to manually inspect each circuit board and find the errors with the naked eye. We use modern Automated optical inspection machines that check each PCBA/circuit board, and the operation is monitored by our engineers. AOI technology ensures that our customers get flawless devices.
In-circuit testing (ICT) and flying probe testing provide high quality troubleshooting
ICT is a powerful tool for PCBA testing. With us, testing usually takes place in seconds, with high-quality troubleshooting. We also offer flying probe tests, which are excellent for measuring resistance, voltage and other contact points on the circuit boards.
