Investing in Europe – Investing in the Future

Since the formation of Eurocircuits in May 1991 it was clear to the owners Luc and Dirk that continuous investment was key to the success of the company.

And since then they have invested in all areas of the company from new factories, manufacturing and test equipment, internal software development, customer support and people.

This year (2019) sees a new level of investment of 5 million Euros, something both Luc and Dirk are very excited about.

Why Invest so much?

The simple answer is to meet the demand for our services from our customers.

But there is more to it than that, our customers need ever faster deliveries of their prototypes and small series PCBs so that they can meet their Time-to-Market challenges.

For example, this year we reduced our standard delivery from 7 to 3 working days for our PCB Proto service to meet customer demands. We also introduced our 3+3 service, offering Prototype PCBs Manufactured in 3 days and Assembled in 3 days.

And these new and improved services are only possible with the level of investment we have made.

Where did we Invest?

A major part of the investment was to improve and expand our Assembly service.

We also invested in our PCB Production and Software Development as this drives our DFM process and Visualizers.

Why Such a Large Investment in Assembly?

Around 2 years ago Eurocircuits introduced their prototype and small series Assembly service as a response to customer and market demand.

Our customers basically said “ok, we have been ordering PCBs from you for years, but we need more” and thus we introduced the Assembly service.

Since then, the demand for our Assembly service has skyrocketed and we knew already in 2018 that a large investment would be required to meet this ever-increasing demand.

In 2019 (Jan-Oct) our Assembly service has already handled more than 3.500 orders from over 1.100 customers, this compares to 1.700 orders from 670 customers for the whole of 2018.


We are Ready, are You?

Eurocircuits Introduces – PCB Prototype 3+3 Service

Eurocircuits Introduces – PCB Prototype 3+3 Service


Eurocircuits understands that Time-to-Market is crucial for developers as they need to meet shorter lead-times to maximise the potential of their new products.

Since the beginning of 2019 we have developed and introduced new software, manufacturing processes and equipment that allows us to reduce the manufacturing and assembly time of your PCB prototypes.

Using these new tools we are very excited to introduce you to our new

PCB Prototype 3+3 Service

Fast & Easy

Your PCB Prototypes manufactured in 3 working days and Assembled in 3 working days as standard, helping you to meet your Time-to-Market challenges.

Reducing our standard delivery term from 12 working days to 6 working days……….that’s 50% faster!


Have your Prototypes Manufactured & Assembled

In Europe by Eurocircuits

Newsletter – Looking Back at 2018


2018 – What a Year!

For Eurocircuits 2018 was another successful year building on our continued growth over the past 2 decades.

We finished 2018 with a consolidated turnover of around 26.5 million Euros including, PCB services, PCBA services, eC-equipment and consumables.

We also faced and overcame several challenges such as, the implementation GDPR and the shortage of some electronic components.

The stringent way in which we implemented GDPR may have resulted in some of your colleagues no longer receiving our News & Information feeds, if this is the case then we invite them to Opt-in to fix this problem.

Our continued growth helps us to invest and develop new products and services for our customers as well as, investing in new processes and equipment that keeps you at the cutting edge of PCB technology.

We will develop more tools to help you deliver your products to the market on time and on budget.

In 2018 we invested around 1.5 million Euros in manufacturing technology and equipment and in 2019 we plan to almost double that.

We expect some macro-economic challenges in 2019 and are well prepared for these.

In 2019 we will continue to focus on PCB Prototype and Small Series market for both bare board and assembly.

Our aim is to achieve another leap forward in PCB services we offer and to meet the challenges of our fast-growing PCB Assembly services.

We will continue to develop our software tools to offer new and advanced features helping you to achieve “Right First Time” for Manufacture products.

And there is so much more…………..we invite you to take a look for yourself here.


We are looking forward to another fantastic year in 2019




Eurocircuits wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Press Release September 2018 – Right First Time with PCBA Visualizer

Right First Time with PCBA Visualizer

Eurocircuits has now added the PCBA Visualizerto their online eC Smart Tools seamlessly linking PCB Manufacture to PCB Assembly and driving their philosophy of “Right First Time for Manufacture”.

It is without a doubt that the PCBA Visualizer brings unparcelled functionality and control to the customer. It allows them to visually check that the selected components physically fit their PCB layout before the manufacturing process starts, thus avoiding lengthy delays or costly remakes.


To support their philosophy of “Right First Time for Manufacture” Eurocircuits has two approaches. The first is to provide information via their website to help Design Engineers understand the manufacturing process. Secondly, to provide online eC Smart Tools to help check design data before it goes to manufacture.

Eurocircuits developed the PCB Visualizer some years ago and have continued to enhance the features ever since. This was the first of their online eC Smart Tools allowing customers to upload their bare PCB board data and visually check and repair any issues related to manufacturing.

The PCB Visualizer helped reduce the data anomalies before manufacturing from 25% to less than 3% thus representing a serious WIN-WIN between customer and manufacturer.


In late 2017 Eurocircuits entered the PCB Assembly arena to offer their customers a One Stop Shop for their Prototype and Small Series PCB requirements and introduced the PCBA Visualizer (the ‘A’ standing for Assembly).

This online eC Smart Tool allows customers to upload their BOM (Bill of Materials) and CPL (Component Placement List) data where it is automatically analysed, parts identified and location on the actual PCB defined.

The PCBA Visualizer helps to resolve issues such as correcting component rotation/alignment, assigning polarity, selecting alternative parts along with many others. The goal is, as it always is with Eurocircuits, to have data that is “Right First Time for Manufacture”.

With the PCBA Visualizer the Eurocircuits customer will ultimately have PCB design, BOM and CPL data that has been validated for manufacture, there is even a 3D graphical representation of the assembled product available.

Therefore, the number of errors prior to the actual production can be drastically reduced or even eliminated. As a result, the process is more efficient, making these smaller orders more cost effective, hence the creation of a new market: assembly of prototypes and small series as a business.


The PCB Visualizer and PCBA Visualizer along with the eC Smart Tools help Electronic Designers to identify PCB and Assembly manufacturing issues before they place their order. These Powerful Tools are free to use for Eurocircuits customers, thus optimising their PCB design flow and ensuring “Right First Time for Manufacture”.
