Box Build

From your drawings, we can manufacture complete complex (and not-so-complex) electronic products in volumes to suit your requirements.

Electro-mechanical box build expertise

We will take your electronics project right through the manufacturing process, including PCB assembly, and deliver finished electro-mechanical products.

We can stock generic products and configure to order and ship to anywhere in the world ready to sell or install without the need for further testing. 

We’ve been doing this for 35 years in the UK through our former companies Briton EMS (founded in 1979) and Union Four Electronics – a life times’ experience.

Dedicated production areas

Across our site in St Neots, we have four SMT lines, cable assemblies, electro-mechanical box build, testing and stores for the thousands of components we build into products.

We can configure dedicated production cells that suit your product requirements.

We manufanufacture a significant amount of electro-mechanical products ranging from fitting a single PCB assembly (PCBA) into a simple housing, up to full electro-mechanical box builds with multiple PCBAs, displays, batteries, cables and metal work.

Material procurement

When procuring materials on your behalf – electronic, mechanical and fabricated – we’re helping your cash flow; as we also forward order and schedule, the savings are passed on to you through a more competitively priced assembly. We also offer traceability services such as - strategic minerals, country of origin, life cycle monitoring and more.

We’re also happy to use your free issued parts and manage them through our system to reduce your stock holding, material commitment and your time in managing materials.

Moisture sensitive devices are stored in accordance with manufacturer recommendations and baked and vacuum sealed or stored in one of our dry stores to maintain shelf life.

See our global procurement page for more information.

LEDs, displays and much else

As a member of the OSI Electronics family, we have special access to our sister companies whose products can be incorporated into your project to maximise value-add, help to reduce overall costs and ensure continuity of supply and quality.

Their products include opto electronic components, laser LEDs, displays, plastics, metalwork, key pads, cables and many other commodities, all manufactured to international standards.

Quality work, trained technicians

While PCB assembly is highly automated, as is much of the test work we do, assembling intricate electronics requires skilled and well trained engineers and technicians who can follow instructions and drawings to ensure every product is assembled correctly.

We have accreditations for quality management (ISO 9001: 2015), medical devices (ISO 13485: 2016) and environmental management (ISO 14001: 2015); all are certified ahead of expiry.

We are also an approved sub-contractor under the ATEX Directive and a certified sub-contractor for UL Approved Products.

And overseas, our facilities in Indonesia, Malaysia and North America have AS 9100 certification for aerospace, defence and military work and ISO/TS 16949 for automotive applications.
