Faraday Printed Circuits History
Founded in Washington,Tyne & Wear in 1987, Faraday Printed Circuits Ltd has been supplying high quality printed circuit boards (PCBs) to the global electronics industry for almost 30 years.
The company has grown steadily over the years keeping pace with the increasing demand for ever more technically complex designs.
Occupying premises of just 4000 sq ft in 1987, Faraday now operates out of a manufacturing plant of over 22,300 sq ft on the Washington site.
Over 20 years ago, in response to rapid globalisation of the electronics manufacturing industry, Faraday set in place measures which have resulted in the formation of strategic partnerships with a number of key Asian PCB fabricators. This arrangement ensures we can provide our customers with a tailor-made solution to their PCB sourcing requirements, whether it be for fast turn around prototypes and medium volume product from our UK plant, or higher volumes taking advantage of the reduced production costs of our Far Eastern partners.
Faraday received accreditation to British Standards EN ISO 9002 in 1999, and was presented with the Investor In People award in 2000, in recognition of the Company's commitment to staff training and development. We improved further against the IiP standard in 2011 when we were awarded the Investors in People Bronze Award showing that we go beyond the core standard.
Currently, the Company employs 52 staff, mostly resident in the Washington area, with over 700 years of PCB manufacturing experience between them. This fact coupled with the vast resources of our Asian partners makes Faraday ideally placed to provide our customers with the world class service they both expect and deserve.
