Hitec, Kaizen Offer Fast Turn-Around Prototypes, Volume Manufacturing

Cambridge metalwork company, Hitec and electronics manufacturer, Kaizen Technology have formed a strategic alliance that will offer high tech firms a ‘one-stop-shop’ for fast turn-around prototypes and volume manufacture. This alliance brings together a wealth of manufacturing expertise and high value manufacturing technology, offering European technology developers possibly the best opportunity for fast product development.

“In the technology sector, getting to market early is a big issue,” said John Stevenson, Managing Director of Hitec. “Often the first to market with a design can expect to secure a bigger market share and a better price. Also, being able to change designs at short notice in response to market demands and advances in technology is becoming a key issue. For many years now, we have been experts in supplying metalwork to the technology sector, we think that this alliance will provide technology developers with the fast and flexible manufacturing support they need to compete.”

Hitec have become a leader in the provision of enclosures and machined components for the technology sector. They provide metalwork for broadband routers, printing machines, audio systems, ink mixing technology, telecom rack systems and even agricultural technology and heating systems. Using the latest technologies such as CAD/CAM systems, laser cutting and advanced CNC machinery, Hitec’s engineers have become recognised for their expertise in this field.

Kaizen Technology are experts in manufacturing electronics and have recently invested over £100,000 in new technology for the assembly of lead-free surface mount and BGA technology components.

“This is an exciting time for us,” said Richard Kaval, Operations Director at Kaizen. “The new equipment is the very best. Its fast, accurate and reliable, so we are well positioned to offer a first class manufacturing service. I think that, between us, Hitec and Kaizen share very powerful technology and a lot of expertise. We feel confident that this alliance will bring many benefits to the technology community.”
