Manufacturing at the Competence Center Zurich

Our strength is manufacturing products with increased quality and reliability requirements, including to IPC-A-610 Class 3. In order to be able to meet the high quality requirements, the employees are continuously trained by our internal trainers.

Our delivery spectrum ranges from simple printed circuit boards with low assembly density to large-format, double-sided assembled, complex multilayer or rigid-flex printed circuit boards up to fully assembled and wired complete systems.
