New UK Sales Manager, new PCB service, new functionality, new support

“A Show in a tent – in February – in England – it’ll never catch on”. That’s the Southern Manufacturing and Electronics Show, now in its 9th. year, and this year with over 600 exhibitors even larger than before. Eurocircuits will be there 12 – 13 February at FIVE in Farnborough on Stand M77.

New Sales Manager

This year as well as new product launches we have a new person launch.

After 42 years in the PCB industry and 8 most enjoyable years at Eurocircuits, the time has come for me to retire. Eurocircuits have appointed Steve Jones as UK Sales Manager with effect from 1 February 2014. With a background in electronic design and assembly Steve brings a whole new set of skills to the Eurocircuits support package. He will be on the stand throughout the show and hopes to meet as many existing Eurocircuits customers as possible.

As well as Southern Manufacturing, Steve will be visiting our plants in Belgium and Hungary in February, so I will continue in post until 24 February. After that call Steve on 07794 906982 or email him at

New service _ BINDI pool

Do you need medium-volume boards (up to 1600 half-Eurocards per batch)? Do you want Asian prices with European service and support?

BINDI pool boards are produced in our new factory in India. We use the same pooling technology, and the same materials, quality standards and equipment as in our European factories. The finished boards are shipped to our factory in Germany, inspected and couriered to you at European rates without customs delays. Find out more on our stand, or get prices and place orders using the same menus as the other Eurocircuits services. BINDI blog.

New price calculator functions

Specify blind and buried vias using the new Buildup wizard. Not all blind/buried via builds are possible, so share our knowledge: run the Buildup wizard before you commit to a particular PCB structure. The software automatically checks that we can produce your proposed build and if not explains why. That way there will be no design re-spins or production hold-ups to delay time to market.Occasionally PCB Visualizer cannot assign layers correctly. Rather than miss the benefits of a Visualizer check use the new Layer mapping function to assign the layers manually.


New support route – online chat

Need a fast answer to a technical question? And can”t wait for an email response? Use the online chat function in the bottom right corner of your Eurocircuits screen. One of our engineers will provide an immediate answer (currently during Belgian office hours only).
