At the beginning of this year, we decided to relocate Spirit Circuits’ manufacturing facility in Waterlooville to its sister-company Lyncolec’s industry leading AS9100-accredited manufacturing plant in Poole. This move combines two highly complementary businesses to create a central manufacturing site with the scale and technical capability to better serve customers and capitalise on growth opportunities.
Spirit Circuits head office will continue to be situated at 22-24 Aston Road, Waterlooville, from where we will manage its VAR operations, sales & technical support and finance functions.
This supports SCL PCB Group’s overall strategy to drive improvements for profitability and efficiency in our PCB solutions businesses. By consolidating our manufacturing capabilities, we will streamline our operations and leverage operating efficiencies for both companies. Transferring Spirit Circuits production into the Lyncolec facility adds significant strategic value, differentiation and competitive advantage.
Manufacturing at the Waterlooville facility will cease at the end of July, after which all processing will take place at the Poole site, our BATM Systems facility in Romania or via a Spirit approved supplier in China.
The Spirit Circuits Sales and Engineering team will remain in place, and there will be no change to your day to day points of contact.
If you have any questions relating to this, then please feel free to contact us Spirit Circuits prepare to relocate to its sister-company Lyncolec
