Cost effective assembly in the UK

In a reversal of previous trends, customers are now realising that offshore manufacturing is not suited to every company. Two key areas often overlooked are the assumption that lower labour costs will automatically boost profits and that equal productivity levels will be achieved. Other aspects are the costs associated with long distance engineering support, relatively large batch sizes and long lead times.

Many companies are now experiencing that the net gain isn’t as large as anticipated especially if their customers demand lower prices when they realise that the product build has moved offshore.

In response to this, Simtek has worked hard to integrate lean principles to all processes whilst controlling overheads thus offering a cost effective alternative now that the tide has turned back to the UK.

Simtek are successfully independent and privately owned since 2004. We offer cost effective assembly in the UK using internationally sourced components, employing automation where possible.

Local, national or offshore suppliers are used dependent upon specifications laid down within the customer’s requirements. If it is the case that a more cost effective offshore component source is available, then Simtek have contacts, experience and trading history in these areas.
