In these somewhat uncertain economic times, “right-sizing” is becoming a growing trend is businesses. Rather than “up-sizing” or “down-sizing,” this new euphemism of the day is about finding the right balance of costs, utility, and TCO to optimize your returns. It’s an ideal, of course, a goal to be pursued but perhaps not necessarily to be met.
In PCB assembling, “right-sizing” actually takes on two meanings… but with the right partner electronics manufacturer, you can get the best of both worlds. Whether you’re looking to reduce component usage or optimize your manufacturing processes to achieve an optimal mix, finding a great US-based electronics PCB assembly service plant can be the perfect way to right-size your electronics order.
For businesses looking to outsource their PCB design and manufacture services, there are a lot of options out there at the moment. The overseas market is still flooded with numerous low cost/low quality manufacturers but their appeal is beginning to wane. Companies are finally starting to realize that with most of these super-cheap foreign manufacturing centers, quality and precision are hard commodities to come by.
The days that you can get away with shipping low-quality electronics are quickly ending. The mass-produced electronics boom of the 80s and 90s lasted surprisingly long, but now, quality in production is of increasing concern. With more and more Internet-empowered consumers sharing their experiences online, word on poorly-produced products gets out faster than ever.
