Competitive companies need agility and flexibility to respond quickly to rapidly changing technologies and customer needs. Partnering with an expert in new product introduction (NPI) is therefore essential.

As a leading EMS provider, Nistec draws on a wealth of experience in design, manufacturing, engineering and supply chain management to drive value for our customers in the NPI phase. We apply NPI processes to help you improve product manufacturability and speed your transition to volume production.

Our team supports the prototype needs of corporations, government, educational institutions, makers and start-ups. In short, if you need electronics assembly faster than found in traditional outsourced PCBA assembly business models, we have a streamlined, fast solution.

Our prototype and short run PCBA assembly services include:

  • single board or a few thousand
  • Turn-times as quick as 24 hours from when we get your parts and files
  • No NRE or long-term commitments required
  • Multiple pricing options:
    • Full-Proto service: When speed is what you need
    • Short-Run service: When you need lower cost with quality and convenience
