COMPANY PROFILE

 

AWS Electronics Group operates on an international basis with facilities in both the UK and Slovakia, providing a myriad of Electronics Manufacturing Solutions for its customers.

AWS Electronics Ltd., based in Newcastle-under-Lyme, UK, provides full turn-key product supply including PCBAs, electro-mechanical assembly, cable and harness assembly alongside rapid prototyping and maintenance, repair and overhaul services (MRO). 

AWS-Slovakia s.r.o, is a mirror-image facility based in Námestovo, Slovakia, providing a competitive-cost volume manufacturing option for customers in addition to featuring a dedicated hall for automotive projects.

AWS Electronics Group has grown rapidly by responding to customer needs and provides specialist, niche PCB assembly, complete product build and electro-mechanical assemblies. The Group brings together the high level technical capabilities and leading-edge production technologies that are normally associated with multinationals, with an approach to customer service that is based on partnership and personal service.

Customers enjoy the benefits of dedicated account support teams who seek to fully understand the customers' business and products to optimise delivery of specialist electronic manufacturing services and solutions that are both flexible and cost effective.​

In 2020, AWS Electronics Group was acquired by Incap Corporation. Through this acquisition, the whole group has been able to improve service and product offering to its existing customers, widen its customer base, enter into new market segments and increase its geographic presence. The AWS Electronics business units will continue to run their operations as highly independent units within Incap Corporation as per Incap`s current business model.

STRATEGY

 

AWS has grown rapidly over the last 10 years through significant investment and expansion at both its UK and Slovakia facilities. With a customer led focus it has developed its technical capability and broadened its international footprint to become one of Europe’s leading EMS providers.

The company continues to work to a clear strategic plan:

  • Develop internal capabilities within both facilities - a full service provider

  • Supply Chain – procuring globally at the best value

  • Optimise operations – standardisation of processes, procedures and equipment

  • Further develop design capabilities (DfT, DfM and more)

  • Acquire new technology – clearly defined technology road-map

  • Invest in business systems – ERP/MRP/AWS Control - achieving standardisation across both manufacturing sites

  • Drive continuous improvement

  • Adopt lean principles

  • Develop AWS methodology/manufacturing excellence

  • Enhance control & reporting

This strategy is in direct response to support the ever-changing needs and demands of our customers and the markets that they serve.
