tbp responds to the market by expanding capacity

Dutch EMS provider, tbp, which operates in the Benelux region has been experiencing an increase in demand for PCBA. In order to meet this increase, tbp is investing in an extra production line at its main site in Dirksland.
The company says that the total investment amounts to over three million euros. The new line (which will be the 5th in total) will be operational at the end of October. Testing facilities and the number of components in stock have also been improved. And with the arrival of about twenty new – specialised – employees, one could only say that tbp has responded promptly to the situation.

The two existing lines for protos and smaller series will be moved to the other tbp premises at the same industrial site; which will create space for the new line.

A close cooperation with equipment suppliers means that the construction will be realised in only a few weeks, without interrupting existing production. The line will also be running in two shifts, which means the number of employees will increase accordingly, the company disclose in a press release.

Additional testing capacity

Design for Testing (DfT) allows tbp to maximise test accessibility and test coverage of pcba design. Three extra base stations – now eight in total – have been installed for Extended Boundary Scan Testing solution (EBST). An additional flying probe-tester has also been added.

“Standing still is not an option; we must move forwards! Our employees and equipment suppliers allowed our production capacity to be expanded in a very short time frame. This means we can continue meeting extra demand from our clients,” says CEO Ton Plooy in the press release.
