Are you able to support with offsite engineering and manufacturing?

More >
Yes. We regularly provide offsite engineering and manufacturing support to our customers. Our skilled wiremen are able to work independently on your behalf or as part of your own internal team. 

Do you offer full traceability back to component source?

More >
Yes. Each product we produce has its own unique serial number. This serial number links to a works order and we are able to trace each piece of material used within the works order back to the supplier.

Which quality accreditations and/or standards do you work towards?

More >
We hold ISO 9001:2008 across all three sites. Our production operatives are trained to IPC 610 A class 2 and 3. As a registered facility we can also support you with releasing products to UL/CE/CSA.

Is your pricing competitive?

More >
Yes, although we may not be the cheapest. We don’t submit ‘lowball’ pricing in order to win short term orders and avoid participating in e-auctions. If your primary objective is to find someone that can offer you the very best price then we may not be the right partner for you. The quotations we provide have to be competitive but more importantly they are sustainable - something we feel is vital when entering into long term partnerships.

I have a brand new design which I'd now like to take through into production volumes. Can you help?

More >
Yes. Our Engineering team are able to offer Design for Manufacture (DFM) and Deign for Test (DFT) support should you need it. Every product variant we build for the first time is automatically put through our New Product Introduction (NPI) process and overseen by one of our NPI Engineers. Any improvements or observations we have relating to the materials, assembly process, test specifications or product design are captured within an NPI report. On completion, this report is then sent to you by your Account Manager so that any necessary changes can be discussed and implemented in advance of the production build commencing. This process helps avoid unnecessary delivery delays, quality issues and cost.

How would you facilitate high volume manufacturing?

More >

We specialise in producing highly complex products in low to medium volumes. To give you an indication of the volumes we support our customers with, we work on batch quantities as low as one to five, but also up to several thousand a month. If you are looking for an Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) provider to supply upwards of fifty thousand PCBAs a month, then we would facilitate this through one of our Far Eastern supply partners.

I have a Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA) I'd like to outsource. Can you help?

More >

Yes. We manufacture a range of PCBAs on behalf of our customers and have the capability to produce both surface mount (SMT) and plated through-hole (PTH) assemblies. In order to add the most value to your business the majority of these PCBAs are then tested and assembled into sub-assemblies or enclosures to form part of a completed box build, cabinet or electro-mechanical product. 

I’m considering dual sourcing my manufacturing to help spread the risk. What is your advice?

More >

There are pros and cons to dual sourcing and you may find this blog post helpful. Much comes down to how confident you are in the EMS provider's capabilities and their disaster recovery policy.   

What capabilities do you have in the Czech Republic?

More >

With 180 staff employed at our Czech site it is our main product assembly facility. With the exception of SMT assembly, all other assembly capabilities, systems and processes mirror those available within our UK site. Our dedicated transport collects and delivers twice a week from each location.   

Do you have the capability to inspect BGAs?

More >

Yes. We use a combination of X-Ray and Ersascope inspection.  

Do you offer design support?

More >

Yes. We offer Design for Manufacture (DFM) and Design for Test (DFT) through our 15 strong engineering team for electronic, electro-mechanical and mechanical assemblies.

How much will I save if I use your Czech Republic facility?

More >

Unfortunately it’s not possible to give a definitive figure as we need to understand your design, the complexity of your product and its stability along with the number of manual hours required to build the product and your estimated monthly build volumes. Outsourcing projects that have been suitable to utilise our Czech Republic facility have seen in the region of a 10-15% cost saving compared to the UK.  

Are you List X approved?

More >

No.

Do you have automated PTH insertion equipment?

More >

No. However we do have a highly skilled workforce of around 40 staff in our conventional assembly team.

Can I ‘free issue’ material to you?

More >

Yes, although we would recommend you outsource as much of the material procurement as possible. By retaining control of the supply chain, in addition to placing the purchase orders you will need to continue to manage supplier performance, incoming inspection and quality issues along with all the other hidden costs associated with purchasing, purchase ledger, warehousing, losses, damage etc.

In certain instances, for example when a product contains an extremely high value/single source component, it makes commercial sense for you to retain control of these parts. Any material you wish to ‘free issue’ would need delivering in advance of production. JJS will advise you on when the material is required in order to meet the agreed delivery schedules. If material is to be free issued, in order to avoid any confusion with the material supplier, we recommend the relationship, quality and delivery performance remains your responsibility.

Do you offer a refurbishment and/or repair service on products manufactured by third party suppliers?

More >

Yes. An assessment of the ‘scope’ of work required would need to be carried out but we have supported a number of customers with repairs or upgrades to products they have had manufactured by third party suppliers who are no longer able to help.
