What are the benefits of working with you as an EMS?
Our Agile Manufacturing approach enables us to swiftly produce the first series of products to help you launch new products or their upgraded versions, faster than the majority of competitors. We seamlessly switch between products and satisfy each customer's unique needs.
Beyond classic electronic manufacturing services, we can offer full assembly service for your product using our box-build and testing expertise. All our services are competitive in terms of both pricing and delivery times, benefiting from our proximity to the EU.
Is it safe to produce our products at EMS located in Ukraine?
Yes. Despite the ongoing war in Ukraine, we maintain normal operations, having taken only a few basic security measures and having a full contingency plan. Our factory is in the Western part of the country, far from the frontline, and was not affected by war actions. Moreover, the city of our operations is considered one of the safest areas in the country.
All electronics components as well as finished products moving to and from the factory are covered by our corporate insurance
What types of products can be manufactured using your electronic manufacturing service?
We can do it all – from prints - to printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) to fully assembled products based on PCBAs made in the same factory. Apart from the production of electronics, we’re strong in box-build of electronics including testing after box-build and retail packaging. We can work both with your box-build components and packaging but are also able, in most cases, to source these from our network of suppliers.
Can you supply all components and the PCB for my build? Are material provisions possible?
In fact, we prefer to source all the parts ourselves which will be covered by our standard guarantee. You can also supply all the parts sourced on your own – our guarantee will then cover only mounting services according to applicable IPC standards and not the parts themselves. Upon special arrangements, we can work with a combination of customer and own materials.
What is your approach to supply chain management?
Since EKTOS' establishment in 2008, we have been able to build a wide network of suppliers of PCBs, electronic components, mechanical and other parts normally used in the production of electronic products. All our active suppliers are verified through our supplier acceptance procedures. We source from all levels of the supply chain: producers, distributors, catalog suppliers, and proven brokers – to provide the best ratio of pricing and delivery times, without compromising on quality.
How quickly will I receive my offer?
Normally, it takes up to 1 week to get an offer from us. Most of this time is needed to get information from the supplies for the components not available on the market instantly (there are often some) or get better prices from alternative suppliers.
What are the delivery times for orders placed with your EMS?
Nowadays, it’s subject to the availability of components in your BOM on the market. If all are instantly available, the turn-key production first batch of first 10-100 units can take up to 4 weeks including the shipment from/to the EU.
What volumes can your EMS handle? What is your production capacity and lead time?
From 1-3 prototypes to 10,000+ units in a single order – depending on the complexity of the product.
Do you provide prototype manufacturing?
Our order processing and production systems are designed to be able to take in prototypes in between mass production orders. We regularly provide this service both to our in-house Electronics Development department and for third-party clients.
What is your pricing structure and payment terms?
Our commercial offer normally consists of 3 lines: one-time cost, first batch price, and regular price. One-time costs include NPI (New Product Implementation) costs, including stencils, and tools/instruments that are specific to your product(s). This also includes processing your hardware documentation and import to our systems, programming SMT machines, and creating assembly and quality control instructions.
The first batch price is our educated estimate based on some assumptions made w/o having produced the product before.
The regular price is the expected price based on all optimizations implemented after the first batch order.
We normally accept after-payment provided the cost of BOM as well as sourcing costs are covered by the prepayment (the size depends on the product).
Are all assemblies RoHS compliant?
If the components in your BOM are RoHS compliant, so is the assembly made in TECHTO. By default, we’re using only RoHS-compliant production materials and consumables.
How do you ensure high product quality and testing processes?
Our factory is ISO 9001 (Quality Management System) and ISO 13485 (Medical Devices) certified. We uphold these standards which cover the provision of services for the contract production of electronic printed circuit boards with mounted components, enclosure assembly (box-build), programming, and testing of electronic products including those for applications in medical devices.
Which industries do you produce for?
Various industries including energy, indoor climate, audio, energy, marine and defense, agriculture, IoT, LED, and healthcare. Regardless of your industry, our engineers specialize in tailoring solutions to meet your specific industry needs beyond the conventional.
Can you provide references or case studies from previous clients?
Yes, these are available on the “Cases” page of our website
What is the process for submitting an order to your electronic manufacturing service?
You can send your request for quotation to email@example.com
and we will get back within 24 hours with a list of documentation and information we need to precisely estimate your order. The basic documentation requirements are BOM, Gerber, and P&P files, assembly instructions (if applicable), and a filled-out purchase order form.
