The Customer Is King: Exception PCB Leads The Way In High & Low Technology Circuit Boards


Exception PCB is one of the UK’s largest PCB manufacturers for both high and lower technology circuit boards, with an unmatched range and breadth of service options to meet any PCB requirements. The company is part of a Global PCB manufacturing group which includes a leading outsourcing provider Fineline VAR Ltd, offering Global supply chain management expertise.

Exception PCB is a business that has to be constantly investing in the latest technological innovations, and because it is a service provider the Exception team have to work to very specific customer requirements. This means establishing which technologies can aid in the creation of smaller features that are now involved in PCB design and manufacturing, with the need now for PCBs to be miniaturised and to run at a faster signal speed for the many applications our customer’s boards are used for.

Although Exception PCB is based in the UK, the company also has a strong presence elsewhere in areas such as Europe and Asia, via Fineline VAR Ltd, which allows for combined offshore economics with onshore levels of service, flexibility and innovation. The business covers a variety of sectors including Aerospace & Defence, Transportation, Automotive and Communications, as well as Medical, Marine, Semiconductor and Renewable Energy.

Exception PCB fully understands how the importance of quality in both the products and services is paramount to the customers; therefore the company is fully committed to achieving the highest level of quality in all of its activities. These quality standards are highlighted within the various important accreditations that Exception holds, such as Quality Management System AS9100 REV C & ISO 9001 (2009)and Workmanship Standard 600 Class 2 & 3.

Mike Devine is the Sales and Technical Director at Exception PCB with 35 years of experience in the industry, Mike commented, Everything for us is about our customers, as the quicker service we can provide, the quicker our customers can complete their projects before releasing to their respective markets. Speed of service is the key, and this is why we have the latest equipment and processes to enable us to offer the service that we do. I would say this is our USP, along with our experienced dedicated team.

Exception PCB will be exhibiting at Southern Manufacturing once again this year, an event at which the company has grown new business accounts and revenue consistently every time it has attended. It is a key exhibition event for most businesses in the industry from both the UK and Europe, Southern Manufacturing also provides an additional forum to meet with customers, suppliers and industry colleagues.

Things are certainly on the up now for Exception PCB and the exhibition at the Southern Manufacturing event is set to only accelerate this further!
