Signum has invested heavily in new technology for its UK plants, taking its PCB manufacturing capability to be one of only three companies in Europe for large format backplanes. The company has evolved into a "Solutions Provider" with the formation of Signum Integrated Solutions Ltd in Southampton.
Following a comprehensive search of Hampshire and Berkshire, Signum Integrated Solutions Ltd has taken occupation of its new 23,000 square foot facility on a prestigious new development in Hedge End. A number of locations were considered across the area with the facility being chosen for a variety of factors including accessibility to communications and transport links, a highly skilled labour resource, and the ergonomics of the facility.
With continuing investment, and the expected growth in the European contract electronics manufacturing market, Signum will become a leading player in the provision of complex, large, and high technology backplane assemblies and integrated solutions. A core team covering all of the primary areas of manufacturing has been put in place headed by Keith Ferguson – managing director, Paul Hoath – sales and marketing director, and Martin Randall – quality director.
The new company has a new approach to the provision of backplanes and integrated systems. This is achieved by providing a truly independent view of the required components through the expertise of its personnel, additionally, offering the benefit of large company support and direction, as part of the Signum Group, but with lower costs through efficient manufacturing techniques.
The new facility is currently in production and aims to use new technology to provide next generation component handling and assembly capability of backplanes from conventional sizes to large format product – boards in excess of 1,450mm x 750mm – and fully integrated system solutions from design through to hard product.
