Design needs drive the resurgence<br>of manufacturing in European plants

Key is the combination of the manufacturing capabilities in Europe and China. UK based EMS provider ACW rather owns its Chinese factory than having a Chinese partner.
At £45m turnover, ACW has 400 people in plants in Southampton, Tonypandy in Wales and Zhuhai, China, and makes leading edge printed boards with up to 24 layers and end products for Tandberg Televison, BAe Systems and Thales. The plant in Southampton, UK, is the former manufacturing plant of Tandberg and still handles much of the manufacturing, as well as building the end product, downloading all the different software variants and handling the repairs and order fulfillment.
