Reading time ( words)

Rothesay based PCB manufacturer, Flexible Technology, has just been awarded the coveted aerospace and defence approval, EN 9100, better known as AS9100. The approval defines the quality management systems of companies operating in the aerospace and defence industry and gives customers confidence in the quality, performance and safety of the final products, as well as ensuring regulatory compliance and traceability. Managing Director Peter Timms is very positive about the outlook for the company saying, “We’ve always had a considerable presence in the aerospace and defence markets due to the levels of expertise we have in producing high complexity flexible and flex-rigid circuits but this approval will help us to drive sales further in these sectors.”

Flexible Technology are located on the Isle of Bute, just off the west coast of Scotland. They have been producing flex and flex-rigid boards up to 32 layers at their purpose-built factory, since 1982. They are possibly the longest established flexible PCB manufacturers in Europe, with a particular speciality in manufacturing long circuits up to 10M in length.
