40 Years of Quality Electronic Manufacturing Services
Starting out as Speedboard Ltd providing PCBs and contract electronic manufacturing (CEM) services, there followed a management buy-out in 2003 by Richard Watson and Neil Owen and Speedboard became Speedboard Assembly Services. Serving key market sectors, including Aerospace & Defence, Transport, Safety & Security, Communications & Broadcast, Industrial & Instrumentation and Medical, offering the entire range of CEM and EMS services from our facility in Windsor.
In 2018, Speedboard was acquired by NOTE Group, one of the leading EMS partners in northern Europe, manufacturing high end electronics on assignment from customers at state-of-the-art plants across Europe and Asia.
Proqual, founded in 1973, a technically competent, flexible EMS supplier located near Cirencester, was acquired by NOTE Group in 2008. The business focused on services early in the product life cycle such as prototype manufacturing and advanced electronics manufacturing in smaller series. NOTE moved the factory to its current location in Stonehouse towards the end of 2008.
