About Simtek

Company History

Formed in 1995 (as Konav Ltd) from a joint venture between Koden (a Japanese electronics company) and Navico Limited, primarily to build marine radar systems.

In 1998 the company was acquired by Simrad AS, part of the Norwegian Kongsberg Group. Simtek was then part of an international group of companies, which aided the purchasing power, and increased available resources.
During this period Simtek experienced major expansion as an EMS or CEM company, with a diverse product range and customer base.

In 2004 the company was purchased by the present owners as part of a successful management buyout (MBO). Following a number of years managing the business for Simrad, Richard Samuel and Lee Boulton are now joint owners holding the positions of Technical Director and Operations Director respectively.

The new emphasis of the now privately owned business is one of full support for each of the customers, irrespective of their relative size.

Company Philosophy

We are aware that through a product's life cycle there will be different pressures at different times. By understanding the nature of these pressures, we are able to aid our clients where it counts. 

The development of a product and the early inclusion of production engineering and materials management at the front end of a project can have dramatic impacts on cost and quality. These services are no longer a luxury option, but are becoming a value added necessity. It is our aim to develop 'agile manufacturing' processes, by developing tighter and better coordinated networks and 'partner relationships'.

We have supplied complex boxed product, consisting of over 7,500 line items directly to international distribution points, taking full responsibility for purchasing, production and quality.

Simtek EMS as a subcontract electronic manufacturing company aims to develop long-term business partnerships. From our perspective quality considerations are implicit at each stage of production from goods-in to dispatch.

The company gained ISO9001:2008 certification in August 2009, building upon the previously held quality standards ISO9002 and ISO9001:2000.

Expansion of our customer base has been achieved through strategic steps from our solid base in marine electronics and communications. It is no accident that we now deal with other aspects of transport and audio technology as our highly skilled workforce and level of equipment will testify.

Simtek EMS are committed to the Investors in People standard and provide all employees with in-house or external training courses tailored to suit both market and technological demands.
