Southern Enterprise Awards 2020

89 | Southern Enterprise Awards 2020 Sep20085 Based in Dorchester, UK, Prototype Electronics is an assembly manufacturer dedicated to collaboration with suppliers, colleagues and most importantly, customers. The client-centric approach to business has gained the electronics manufacturer a reputation for excellence and their passion for delivering the highest quality of products for their large client base is their ill-kept secret to generating continual business. With ongoing investment in the updating of many of their machines and technology on the back of their success at the Southern Enterprise Awards 2020, Prototype Electronics is now looking ahead to a long and promising future. Prototype Electronics is an assembly manufacturer offering a responsive contract electronic manufacturing service from their comprehensive facilities in Dorchester, UK. An ISO 9001:2015 firm, Prototype Electronic’s highly skilled team are able to provide the highest standards of quality and delivery in design and rapid prototyping as well as medium volume manufacturing. Providing PCB assembly and cable wiring services to a complete range of sectors, Prototype Electronics has an extensive portfolio of companies in their clientele, covering small, medium and multi-national companies within the Defence and Medical, Commercial and Aerospace sectors, and many more besides. It is the firm’s customer-centric approach that has been particularly valuable in attracting such a diversity of clients, and an understanding of the often complex and changeable circumstances in which they are working. Many products have just emerged from the prototype Best PCB Assembly Firm 2020 - Dorset or design stages and therefore come with some imperfections or anomalies in supplied data and initial design. The Prototype Electronics team work closely with their customers in order to manage these situations, acting with honesty, integrity and complete flexibility. These core values that have existed at the centre of the company since its inception lend Prototype Electronics a ‘family feel’ with ‘good vibes’, as described by employees and visiting suppliers and customers. Therefore, the people that the firm works with are chosen based on their shared enthusiasm and vision for providing excellent manufacturing services to all customers. This means working with suppliers who are as adaptive, flexible and responsive as Prototype Electronics, and recruiting candidates who work with enthusiasm, following the established ways of doing things within the firm whilst also taking the initiative when necessary. As a fast-moving and dynamic firm, there aren’t many roles which fit neatly into a box. Working with such a diverse client base, no two days are the same at Prototype Electronics and employees can find themselves with any combination of tasks and challenges each day. As the firm looks to the future and the next step in the development of their business, Prototype Electronics is looking forward to moving the majority of their Goods-in, stores and kitting into an additional 3,000 square foot facility close to their original premises. This is hoped to facilitate the investment in new personnel and machinery over the coming months and years, a necessity the firm has identified in response to their ever-evolving sector. In particular, this has centred around the diminishing size of components, a trend that has been growing at an increasing rate over the past few years. This is pushing many of Prototype Electronic’s machines to their limits and the firm is seeing this as an opportunity to invest, growing their business to enable many more years of successful growth and development.
