Important Information Regarding Chinese New Year 2019

Chinese New Year  falls on 5th February 2019  which is earlier than usual. During this time, offshore manufacturing is affected for almost 3 weeks.

PCB manufacturing in the UK reaches capacity very soon after our far eastern partners commence their holidays which can lead to unplanned disruption to workflows.
