With an ever-changing product demand and more machines becoming ‘smarter’ through Industry 4.0 and the ‘Internet of Things’, PP C&A has seen an increase in electronics assembly demand.
To support demand, PP C&A has invested heavily in its own facility and specifically, in a dedicated environment adhering to the stringent demands of ESD (electro-static discharge). This allows PP C&A to offer a new service that would have commonly been associated with Contract Electronic Manufacturers. The difference here is that PP C&A can add value by utilising its disciplines in strategic outsourcing and product build.
With significant added value and lead-time reductions, this dedicated service allows PP C&A to satisfy very specific and stringent electronics assembly work and subsequently explore and support new markets and applications.
This dedicated and controlled environment has capacity for more complex and delicate builds, encompassing high-end PCB assemblies and box builds.
The environment meet the specific needs of customer projects and the legal compliance to the recognised standards which includes investment in special flooring, benches and test equipment – all grounded to earth to ensure that life of the electronics is protected from potential electrostatic discharge.

A strategic manufacturing outsourcing partnership – built on trust, integrity and maximising each other’s production expertise – is celebrating ten years together with the launch of the world’s most productive EDM drilling machine.
This collection of case studies examines some of the recent strategic outsourcing partnerships delivering against several business pains for machine builders and OEMs, and how those partners are benefiting from the PP C&A approach.
Inventor-e is accelerating disruption of inventory management with the help of the Manufacturing Assembly Network, a unique collective of sub-contract manufacturers and a world class engineering design consultancy.
A new manufacturing partnership between PP Control & Automation and Jenton Group has created the capacity to build new UV technology in volumes that could help protect us from Covid-19 in indoor spaces.
As the years have gone by, the relationship between the two businesses has become more interlinked, with PP C&A increasingly being asked to be involved in the design stage of new machine builds.
Watch how Ishida realised their growth potential by making outsourcing part of their manufacturing strategy.
PP Control & Automation has had the opportunity to publish a variety of articles in the UK’s leading journals for the manufacturing industries.
During the design engineering discussions, it quickly became apparent that a more value-added design would be beneficial, allowing for a modular, configurable and pre-wired (Plug & play) style solution with significant benefit.
Inventor-e was established in 2001 as a technology business to provide point-of-use solutions to industrial manufacturers and the facilities management markets.
