Manufacturing

Bringing designs to life

PHYTEC has an annual production throughput of over 250,000 assemblies. Our manufacturing equipment, ISO 9001/2008-certified processes, cost model and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system enables us to cost-effectively and flexibly manage high-mix, low-to-medium volume (HMLV) manufacturing. This HMLV approach best supports our wide product palette, as well as best meets the delivery demands, quality requirements and customization needs of our diverse customer base.

Personnel are specifically trained for SMD, through-hole, inspection and test functions of our production process. PHYTEC is committed to consistently high quality assurance for all production runs, whether small production batches numbering in the dozens to volume output of thousands of units.
