AboutUK Electronics Ltd

Originally formed in 1983, UK Electronics have been providing a high quality, cost-effective service to customers who prefer to outsource their electronic design, manufacture and test requirements.

UK Electronics originally set up as a bare board broker and design house and opened its first production facility in the early 90’s, initially with just a handful of employees.

During the late 90’s the company began to expand increasing the number of assembly staff to double figures and in addition added surface mount capabilities to its profile. By 2002 the company had also added a box build / mechanical department to its structure as part of on going demand from its customers.

In October 2003 the business was acquired by the present directors, Neil Carr, Ian Duckworth and Gary Howarth. Together with the help of their dedicated employees the company excelled and the order book continued to expand.

Throughout 2007 the company realised that it needed to move to larger premises to support its ever increasing order book. So in the autumn of 2008 UK Electronics moved to its present location in Royton. In addition significant funds were invested in the latest plant equipment to increase the company’s technical capability and capacity.

In the interim the company continued to develop and expand. To support its expanding customer base the company has continued to invest in people skills and the latest technology available. In early 2016 we introduced a new fully automated Surface mount line which included the very latest ‘Decan’ placer from Samsung. This machine is the first to be installed in the UK and has a placement rate of 80,000cph. Fast forward to 2018, we have invested a further £150k in installing a Samsung Hanwha SM481 plus flexible pick and place machine and a Samsung SP450V fully automated screen printer. With the latest investment it has allowed UKE to increase capacity by approximately 40%.

Whether you require electronic assembly, hardware or embedded software design, PCB supply, PCB layout, pre-compliance EMC testing or any combination of the above, we have the capability to turn your ideas into reality.
