British manufacturer GTK opens first factory in Romania

The market for cable assemblies and box build assemblies will benefit from a new addition, in Romania. Specifically, GTK company (UK) representatives announced opening a new manufacturing facility, in the Romanian city of Craiova. The center will focus on making various types of cable assemblies and box build assemblies, including connectors and optoelectronics. It also prides on offering turnkey electronics manufacturing solutions. The new facility is intended to meet the public’s growing demand for efficient electrical units, along with its UK and Far East manufacturing locations.

One of the reasons for choosing Craiova is the city’s performance at being the main commercial area West of the country’s capital city of Bucharest. This is also the 6th largest city in Romania.

 An advanced facility for maximum efficiency

The factory is spread on an area of 450 square meters and company representatives plan to extend it to 2.000 square meters. The team uses advanced automated processes and equipment. This helps with handling high volume production, it increases the efficiency of the manufacturing process and helps establish competitive prices. The equipment is also designed to be flexible, meaning it can adapt to each and every product build with ease.

The Romanian facility is under inspection from on-site quality officers, with a guarantee that the factory operates according to industry standards. An UL approval is expected by the end of 2016.

Talking about the new Romanian factory is the Operations Director at GTK, Steve Robinson: ‘This new facility replicates the production capabilities of our UK facility and we will be using identical manufacturing, scheduling, quality and data collection processes. Using the same software at both locations will allow us to be extremely agile in the way in which we service our customers’ requirements. It will also ensure we can be extremely cost-effective’.

A company with rich experience

GTK comes with 25 years of experience in the electronics manufacturing industry. The company has been investing in infrastructure and automation in order to offer cost-effective build models. GTK also plans to expand its business to Germany, sometimes in the future.
