AWS has developed mirrored cable assembly operations in Newcastle-under-Lyme, UK, and Namestrovo, Slovakia, enabling fast turn around, full production run and low-cost manufacturing services.

Last year, the company introduced a quick-turn-around cable-assembly service based its AWS Electronics manufacturing site in Newcastle-under-Lyme, reducing lead times for prototype or Fast Track requests to 3-5 days.

Normal production run work is completed in 15 working days.

Now the company has set up a mirror facility in its newly opened location in Slovakia so that it can offer low-cost cable assembly to its high-tech customer base.

The Namestrovo plant has a dedicated cabling area measuring 450m with 56 fully trained staff.

Like the main plant in the UK, the Slovakian plant is supported by dedicated technical, purchase and stores activities.

It is set up in exactly the same way as the UK facility and is approved to ISO 9001:2000.

The UK facility is also approved to IS0 1400:2004 and AS9100-B, as well as being awarded silver award status within the ADS (formerly SBAC) SC21 programme, through its sponsor, General Dynamics, while at its Slovakia location, AWS manufactures cable assemblies to IPC620 Class 3.
