EC Electronics have signed the lease on a second factory in Romania, opening the door to new opportunities. This new state-of-the-art facility will be dedicated to cable assembly and overmoulding, providing opportunity to expand their capabilities to build even the most complex projects. This new site will also provide substantial space for future expansion.

Our mission is to become the best in class Electronics Manufacturing Services partner for OEMs and product innovators, offering services such as PCB assembly, electronics box build, overmoulding and their latest service, product realisation. With a total of five sites across the globe, the opening of a new factory will enable their factory in Petrosani, Romania, to specialise in PCB assembly and electronics box build projects.

Over the next six months EC Electronics will be investing further in its Romanian factories. Alongside the upgrade to the PCB assembly lines, new overmoulding processes are being added to the service offering. With a floor area of approximately 10,500 sq ft and extensive external space, this new factory provides opportunity for vast expansion in the future.

Phil Simmonds, Group Managing Director, adds, “It’s an exciting time at EC Electronics. Demand for our box assembly and product realisation services has been very encouraging, with many new projects in the pipeline. We are investing in our factories both here in the UK and in Europe, future proofing our capabilities and capacity to ensure we can meet our customers’ requirements both now and into the future.”

The opening of a new factory in Romania complements EC Electronics’ current work, as they also produce electronics box build projects at their factory in Theale, Berkshire. It is anticipated that this site will become increasingly important in avoiding the costly transportation of large boxes and components across Europe, offering customers the benefit of UK final assembly, even in the event of a difficult Brexit outcome.
