Ultra opens EMS plant in Sawston, UK
Ultra has opened a new high technology engineering services & production hub in Sawston, Cambridge, UK.
Mirroring the accreditations already held by its larger parent operation in Weymouth, the new Cambridge plant is set to quickly gain AS9100 Aerospace approval to add to the ubiquitous ISO 9001:2008. The engineering led Cambridge facility offers manufacturing expertise and complimentary value added engineering services. Providing SMT and through-hole PCB assembly as well as full system assembly the operation features two SMT lines, automatic optical inspection, flying probe and functional test capabilities. Matching the production and test equipment present in Ultra’s Weymouth plant the Cambridge front-end operation provides a smooth migration path to the Weymouth plant for larger volumes and to Ultra’s offshore suppliers for high volume production. Whilst a new operation, the Sawston plant is run by a team of specialists who have worked closely together in electronic assembly within the Cambridge area for many years, bringing a richness of experience and a thorough understanding of the rapid response business.
