Turnkey PCB Prototyping Services

Purchasing the items needed to assemble a PCB can be difficult. Leave it all to us! Working with our procurement team yields the following benefits:

  • Tenured Crew – Our procurement staff has years of experience acquiring materials from a screened and approved vendor list to speed up the manufacturing process.
  • Trusted PCB Suppliers – Our deep catalog allows us to tap into many distributors across the US. These companies, like Mouser, DigiKey, and Arrow, carry over a million different components combined. We also work with a small group of carefully vetted manufacturers to help us fabricate all kinds of bare boards for pcb fabrication.
  • Hard to Find Components – The global supply chain shortage of some electronic components remains a serious issue two years after it started. Our procurement team will work with you to find options to purchase all the components required for your assembled boards. Our engineering staff can also work to suggest possible alternatives for your team to explore.
  • Built for Speed – Speed is our priority for the assembly of our printed circuit boards. We buy essential components in bulk. We expedite orders for more specialized parts so we can quickly assemble your high-quality PCB prototype as soon as possible. Our team can also use consigned products from customers if needed.
