If you need a circuit board that’s been tailor-made to your requirements rather than mass produced in the Far East, then this is your company. This Windsor-based outfit was established in 1984 as Speedboard Ltd, supplying PCBs [printed circuit boards] and providing CEM Contract Electronic Manufacturing services. In 2003, the business was sold in an MBO to Richard Watson and Neil Owen, and renamed Speedboard Assembly Services. The £8m-turnover company, which now has 93 employees, primarily serves the domestic market with clients ranging from start-ups to multinationals. Alongside the CEM service, it also offers BGA and AOI assembly and passive MDA test systems, for the acronym-savvy among you.
