Together with the main unit a few yards away, production space has increased from 35,000 to 55,000 ft² (3,250 to 5,100 m²).
“The new unit will be used for series production where smooth workflow is key to high productivity,” said Marco Di Mambro, OSIE UK’s Engineering and Facilities Manager, who has been responsible for fitting out the new building.
“This is a big step from the days when production was limited to a few hundred units a month,” said John Harley, Commercial Manager. “Now we’re looking at thousands – while still retaining the agility to meet customers’ changing needs.”
Derek Williams, Head of Operations, affirmed “The new facility, left, is a major step forward in facilitating our growth strategy and has been welcomed by both our key and new customers.
“We will be extending our services to include configure-to-order and direct-ship capabilities to enhance our service and to remove unnecessary cost from the supply chain.”
OSI Electronics UK is a subsidiary of Californian based OSI Electronics.
