High-tech hits Somerset

The small but perfectly formed town of Somerton, Somerset is famous for its beauty and charm, but few people probably realise that it is also home to a dynamic hi-tech company.
Trizo PCB Assembly is at the forefront of modern electronics manufacturing and it’s a wonderful fusion of both the very old of the ‘Ancient Royal Town of Wessex’ and the very new that the company should be based in Somerton. Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) are the lifeblood of the 21st century and Trizo has been able to amass all the accreditation and safety certificates that are vital for this type of industry. Some large-scale manufacturing is carried out overseas, but the design engineering and supply chain management are carried out in the company’s Somerset base. Trizo also has a highly effective logistics department that can guarantee safe and timely delivery in any part of the world.
Somerset is famous for its links with the avionics industry and Trizo has contracts with both the military as well as the aerospace community. One of the main reasons for the company’s success is its ability to source components from the entire world and also guarantee the quality of its design engineers and its products. The company also provides ‘high quality electronics manufacturing services (EMS) to UK-based original equipment manufacturers within niche technology-based market sectors.’ From surface mount assembly to test and inspection, this small Somerset firm really does offer a one-stop shop for any clients looking for Contract Electronics Manufacturing (CEM).
Trizo products are competitively priced but customers are aware that the product will be protected by ISO 9001:2008 and AS9100, as well as many other quality certificates.
Anyone looking to find work in this sector may well wish to apply to Trizo rather than having to take a lengthy commute to Bristol or further afield. As technology advances almost every facet of life will be governed by PCBs, so this will continue to be a sector that will grow. It’s reassuring to read about a company’s commitment to quality and excellence, as well as one that is constantly evolving. The company recently invested in a state of the art Phoenix X Ray machine in order to perfect their manufacturing processes and ensure that all PCBs produced by the company will be perfect.
Mike Nicholson, Trizo’s Managing Director, recently stated: “The addition of this system will enhance Trizo’s quality commitment to customers as well as the continuous improvement and total quality methodologies within the business.
“This is a true measure of Trizo’s continuous commitment to the highest quality standards,” added Mr Nicholson.
With so many companies undergoing financial problems, it makes a pleasant change to record the positive and dynamic events of a very modern company within a small ancient Somerset country town.
