Quality
assurance

All our production capabilities comply with the highest quality standards and regulatory requirements.

Tried and tested product design process

In addition to our in-house product designers and engineers, we can bring in specialist design expertise as needed. Our entire process, from defining the requirements to designing and engineering hardware and software, draws on our 60 years’ experience in electronic product design.

We’re also well versed in designing for manufacture, ensuring you get the quality and performance you need, within the required timescales and at the most affordable price.

A vertically integrated manufacturing approach

Our state-of-the-art UK manufacturing facility offers end-to-end production facilities, from automated electronics surface mounting, injection moulding, assembly and inspection, to precision hand assembly, test and packaging processes.

Quality and environmental management assured

Quality checks are built in to every stage of the process and sophisticated test equipment allows us pinpoint and correct issues as soon as they arise. All our products are fully tested internally to ensure they are fit for purpose, reliable, robust and compliant with safety and industry standards. Finally, they’re approved by third-party test bodies. If a quality issue is identified we’ll correct it quickly in house, meaning no product will leave our premises unless we’re completely confident it meets your needs.
