It is testament to the hard work and quality-focus of the entire team in Havant. And this is the latest, although perhaps most important, of a number of developments at the site. I am certain that any customer that has not visited us since early 2013 will be hugely impressed with the changes that we have made. The shop floor has undergone a total re-fit and we have installed a new SMTDiscrete miniature capacitors which are packaged without leads and fastened directly to foil patterns. line. We are also in the process of implementing a new MES system (Aegis FactoryLogix) which will enhance our QMS even further.”
