Eurocircuits: Crisis management demonstrates the performance and flexibility of European suppliers

Mastering, helping and communicating day-to-day business as best as possible is the credo of Eurocircuits. The group of companies manufactures circuit boards for respirators in Belgium and Holland and supplies hardware developers with circuit board prototypes and assembled assemblies without any restrictions.

“No mountain is too high for us in managing the current crisis,” explains Managing Partner Dirk Stans. “Protecting the health and safety of all employees is our top priority, and yet our customers can rely on us 100%,” Stans continues.

“We are open and ready to help,” Eurocircuits has informed all of its customers. The response was great and an important emotional gesture for the entire team, which has been working at the limit since the end of January. When large parts of China were closed at the end of January as a result of the corona virus, order intake at Eurocircuits skyrocketed, throughout February, incoming orders reached up to 150% of the daily production capacity. More than 34,000 orders for printed circuit boards or 20% more orders than in the same quarter of 2019 were processed.

The order situation has been back to normal since mid-March, but the special situation continues to challenge the team. “We take a lot of time to communicate with our customers in addition to day-to-day business and show that we are there for them,” emphasizes Stans. Eurocircuits tools for design verification, price calculation and ordering are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Nothing has changed in the standard delivery times: bare PCBs in 3 working days for prototypes and 5 working days for all other PCBs. Developers receive PCBs completely populated with components for prototypes up to 4 layers and 5 pieces in 6 working days and in 10 working days for all other services. There may be delays in delivery because the courier service providers cannot deliver everywhere without some restrictions. Eurocuircuits provides a daily update on the website.

“We see the corona crisis as an opportunity to demonstrate how efficient and flexible the European electronics industry is and how important domestic suppliers are for our society,” explains the Managing Partner. Many developers who work from home are cut-off from normal daily interactions and the ease with which they usually find solutions and services for product development.
