Bringing quality, value and innovation to minimise your time, cost and risk.


What we do

Abaco's manufacturing services is a contract electronics manufacturer (CEM) specialising in NPI, prototyping and pre-production and production of batch-build, high reliability, high quality, high performance surface mount (SMT) technology and mixed/through-hole and plated through-hole (PTH) printed circuit board assemblies (PCBA).

Full range
As an electronics manufacturing services (EMS) supplier, we offer a full range of manufacturing services including box build, cable assembly and mechanical assembly, and back this up with an experienced procurement, purchasing and supply chain team who will work with you on managing your material requirements.

The customers we serve often deploy our manufactured assemblies in environments such as:







We can handle free issue, part- or full procurement, and offer full traceability if required. Our robust counterfeit avoidance policy is to industry standards.

Manufacturing Services


Error-free, repeatable

Quality is at the heart of everything we do. Our accreditations include:

  • AS9100 Rev C
  • ISO9001 2015
  • ISO 14001 2015

Together with BSI Kitemark for IPC-A-610F Class III.

Each of our people is responsible for quality, executing multiple process checks and balances and supporting our focus on always delivering to you products that are to your specification and 100% reliable.

Personal responsibility
Our manufacturing process is designed to be error-free and entirely repeatable: our aim is to deliver your product only once. Quality is at the heart of everything we do and in our culture. Our people are encouraged and empowered to take personal responsibility for ensuring that we meet your requirement.

Sophisticated capabilities
Our process features sophisticated capabilities, and our program of investment is designed to ensure that we can meet your requirements both now and in the future. Your assemblies – not just samples – are comprehensively tested throughout production, and we can offer complete traceability to meet your requirements in both material and manufacturing processes.


Partnering for success

From our ability to consult with you on design for manufacture, design for test and prototyping through to our ability to provide package-on-package, 0.4mm BGA and 01005 placement, Abaco's manufacturing services provides a flexible, comprehensive capability that can do as much or as little as you need.

Our manufacturing offerings include:

  • Vapour phase reflow
  • Conformal coating
  • Environmental stress screening (ESS)
  • 3D solder paste inspection (SPI)
  • 3D X-ray inspection (AXI)
  • Roving Probe (Flying Probe) test
  • Automated optical inspection (AOI)
  • JTAG/XJTAG development and run time test
  • Automated SMD production lines

Moisture-sensitive components are handled appropriately with dry stores, vacuum sealing and bake ovens in place, and processes in place to ensure voiding is kept to below industry standards.

Expertise, experience
We have expertise and experience in dealing with all PCB substrates such as FR4, polyimide, ceramic, Rogers, PTFE, flexi-rigid and metal-backed laminates.

With batch sizes from 1 to 100 for NPI/prototyping and production batch sizes from 10 upwards, and lead-times from as little as 48 hours, we can provide you with surface mount, PTH assembly and test - or any combination.

Complete system builds
You can also benefit from our significant experience in the assembly of complete system builds such as telecommunication racks and scientific instrumentation.

Long term
Our goal is to work with you as a long term partner to add value to your business, to help you solve challenging problems, to achieve competitive advantage and to maximise your success by enabling you to get your no-compromise products to market in the shortest time at the optimum cost.

Involve us early enough, and we can make a real difference.

Our facility and people are well used to dealing with secure/restricted data such as ITAR or UK ML export control. Your data/IP will be safe with us.
