Keywords: Chêne, Consultants, Electronics, Manufacturing

An extremely wide range of consultancy and electronics manufacturing services are being offered by Chêne Ltd, a new manufacturing consultancy company headed up by leading industry figures John Tutt and Peter Grundy (Plate 3).

Chêne is helping manufacturers with all aspects of electronics manufacturing and engineering from product-based design for manufacture, through to the specification of complete manufacturing lines.

Its services are based around the four key areas of production, project management, process/product development, and production equipment specification.

"Most companies need specialised engineering resources from time to time in order to create new production lines, engineer new products into production, explore new technologies or prove out a new product or prototype", explains Chêne's process and production development specialist, John Tutt. "Yet many companies, particularly the large corporations, have cut back on skilled technical staff, or are unable to acquire them. Chêne, therefore, aims to bridge this expertise gap through its comprehensive range of consultancy and manufacturing services."

Chêne provides these resources on a contract basis and can use its own facilities, which include state-of-the-art production machinery, to prove concepts, and "productionise" new products or develop prototypes.
