The manufacturing process

Manufacturing a quality printed circuit board is quite a complex task. There are various stages to creating the finished product with many different types of engineering from mechanical through chemical and then testing and inspection.

It is for this reason that we will only work with rigorously tested and proven manufacturers to create the printed circuit boards that you have invested so much time in to design.

However simple or complex your design, choose ALR as your purchasing partner for great results, on time, every time.
