outsourced manufacturing solutions

Electronics manufacturing solutions

The Paragon Electronics Group helps manufacturers of low to medium volume, high complexity Industrial Electronics products focus on the core activities that deliver value to them. We provide complete outsourced manufacturing solutions, allowing our customers to spend their time developing and selling new and better products.

A trusted solution provider to OEMs

When it comes to supply chain management and electronics manufacturing outsourcing, the confidence an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) has in their assembly partner is critical.

By outsourcing the procurement, assembly and test to an Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) provider, an OEM relinquishes some control over their day-to-day manufacturing operations. As a result, they need to be fully confident that when it comes to making production changes - for example, final configurations or unexpected changes in customer demands - they trust their provider to respond with the same precision and dexterity as they would themselves.

Our sister company JJS Manufacturing is able to demonstrate knowledge, capabilities, skills, processes, controls and agility in managing our customers' business to a level such that they feel wholly comfortable in relinquishing this control to us.

Why us?

Ranked as one of the largest UK EMS providers with a wholly owned off-shore manufacturing facility in the Czech Republic, Paragon and JJS Manufacturing have been supporting clients to grow their businesses for over 30 years. During this time, we have watched them develop innovative new products, dominate market sectors, and significantly improve the financial strength of their organisation.

Unlike some other EMS providers, the Paragon Electronics Group offers a complete, complementary range of assembly services and solutions, underpinned by a demonstrable track record in supply chain management. Ensuring the integrity and availability of the material we source is something we take very seriously which is why we have over 50 staff within the group dedicated to this critical process.

We have experience across a wide range of market sectors with the majority of our customers designing and selling Industrial Electronics products which are supplied into the Industrial Automation, Process Control, Test and Measurement and Laboratory Technology sectors.

When looking to partner with a new customer we always make sure that there is enough complexity in the product or supporting supply chain for us to be able to add real value to their organisation through an outsourcing initiative. 

Clearly each customer has unique needs which is why we seek to understand exactly why they are considering outsourcing. This understanding allows us to determine how best to use our breadth of manufacturing capability in order to meet their requirements and provide maximum value.
