Manufacturing

Plextek’s manufacturing team are able to translate your ideas into robust, scalable, tested and approved designs that we can transfer to manufacturing using suppliers selected by us or our client.

PCB and mechanical are co-located and share data to allow an agile design process responding to inevitable changes in design requirements. Collaborative working with third-party industrial designers is common, and they are treated as an extension of our team.

Expertise

Key Skills

Creating manufacturable designs: We can contribute from concept phase onwards to implement manufacturable designs of appropriate cost and quality whilst considering and resolving conflicts with performance requirements.

Proven experience: Planned and implemented the manufacture and distribution of over 6 million units using off-shore manufacturing. As well as, low volume high value manufacturing in the UK for security/defence contractors. This includes providing cost-down savings.

Supplier selection and management: Detailed network of a range of suppliers that we can use to benefit our clients, ranging from additive manufacturing and demanding PCB technology through to high volume commercial plastic mouldings and metalwork.

Logistics: We anticipate and resolve customs, duty and tariff issues, including defence related export restrictions and the shipping of various battery types.

Environmental Legislation: Capable of managing and working to the requirements of processes such as, REACH, RoHS and other stringent manufacturing regulations.

Personal Ownership: Providing a single point of contact for all your manufacturing requirements with the knowledge to only involve the most appropriate colleagues, suppliers or third parties that best address our client’s requirements.

Technically challenging designs: Experienced in implementing challenging designs driven by size, functionality or cost.

Costs down: Appreciation of user requirements combined with knowledge of design and experience in commercial negotiations, allows us to reduce the cost of manufactured products, saving the customer money and increasing revenue.

Profile


Terry Warwick – Supply Chain Manager

“The Supply Chain is usually overlooked whenever a project idea starts off; however, it is at the initial design stage that this function can save a company the most time, effort and money in terms of suggesting the right vendors for their materials and expertise. Thus leading to a reliable source of known product support, on time supply at the right quality, and leveraging samples at the best agreed volume prices during the start-up and low volume prototype stages. All of these benefits can help bring a product to market as soon as possible, and provide timely materials for the product from the outset.”
