CEM welcomes manufacturing’s return

Trojan preview edit_tmbFollowing its successful participation in Southern 2017, Trojan Electronics is exhibiting for the first time at Northern Manufacturing & Electronics 2017. The firm says it’s looking forward to seeing its many customers in the region as well as being able to introduce its wide range of services to new potential customers in the North.

The company offers a comprehensive CEM service from design to final product build, services include surface mount and through-hole assembly, cable assemblies, electro-mechanical assemblies and box build. Continued growth has led to the decision to relocate from three sites in 2015, to occupy a new, purpose-built 180,000 sq.ft development in Swansea. This consolidates the three business units, return and repair, e-tail sales and fulfilment and contract electronic manufacturing (CEM). The new facility provides additional surface mount lines, extra capacity for through- hole assembly, as well as enabling large increases in box build output. Experience from its e-tail division means it can package and despatch box built products direct to consumers worldwide.

Basic economies around the cost of labour have traditionally driven swathes of manufacturing overseas, the Far East for consumer products and eastern Europe for industrial products. Trojan reports that it is now seeing this trend reversing. Concerns about the cost of offshore production, a desire for better quality, shorter lead times and more flexibility are just some of the principal motives that have prompted many companies to move manufacturing back to the UK, it says. Its CEM department can accept both free issued components, procure parts, or a mixture of both. The purchasing department uses its established, approved supply chain to source worldwide. All parts are tracked from receipt to utilisation.

The company continually reviews its procedures, invests in training, equipment and manufacturing systems to deliver a quality product on time, every time.
