UK CEM signs deal with Diotec


AA Manufacturing signs franchise with German producer of diodes, rectifiers, triacs, MOSFETs and TVS components

Alan Anderson (AA) Manufacturing, a new UK-based PCB assembly and contract electronics manufacturer, has signed a franchise deal with Diotec Semiconductor, a German producer of discretes including small signal diodes, rectifiers, triacs, MOSFETs and TVS components.

This is the first of a portfolio of franchise agreements with suppliers of essential components with the purpose of protecting customers from shortages in the supply chain.

Sales director, Michael Knight said: “When the market suddenly experiences a large demand, say for AI processors, this has a knock-on effect as there is not enough capacity to make all types of semiconductors. Naturally, the large producers tend to focus their capabilities on the high-end products that have the biggest margin, resulting in some common parts becoming hard to find, and/or expensive. Yet to build a PCBA you need everything – expensive ARM-based processors and simple discrete diodes. Any missing part will cause production lines to cease, no matter how little the individual component costs. By building franchise relationships with key suppliers of simple, widely-specified parts, we can ensure that our customers’ builds come in on time and on budget.”

Diotec has been established for over 50 years and holds ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. All devices are tested 100% at least twice for the main data sheet parameters prior to leaving the company’s factories which are based in Europe, China and India.
