LCL Electronics Assembly celebrates 25 year milestone in business

2017 is the year we at LCL Electronics Assembly, world class contract electronics manufacturers, celebrate 25 years of operations in Leicester,UK.

Founders Richard Hatton and Ian McGregor started LCL Electronics Assembly in Leicester in 1992 with just a small team. Since then, we have has gone from strength to strength to be an employer of over 60 staff in a 13,000 sq ft manufacturing and production facility.

A family-run business,originally we delivered SMT/PCB assembly for a customer in the domestic energy meter sector. This has expanded over the years to include full turnkey manufacturing solutions including box build, cable assembly, PTH, prototypes and LEDs both here in the UK and offshore. As technology has developed, LCL has diversified to produce electronics for other sectors including education, hand-held electronics, leisure and food production sectors.

Richard Hatton, managing director at LCL Electronics Assembly, said “It’s certainly been an exceptional 25 years at LCL. Looking back, it’s amazing to see how industry has changed, while customer requirements are still very much the same – a quality product at a reasonable price and delivered fast.

“Not only that, we have built up long-lasting, established relationships with customers, who trust us, which is one of the most important aspects in a successful business relationship, and has helped us achieve this milestone. Some customers have been with us for over 10 years’ which is a testament to the products and service we provide”.

Investment in staff and equipment has meant that LCL has developed a very strong technical team, working with customers right from the start of product design/prototype and procurement through to testing and delivery, on-time and to budget. Recent projects included PCBs for swimming pool heating controls and food counter heating systems for cruise ships.

LCL Electronics Assembly provides a full turnkey manufacturing solution, including prototype, pre-production and medium volumes of PCBs, product build and cable harnessing. With its comprehensive manufacturing facility, which includes fine pitch, micro BGA, and BGA assembly with ERSA scope inspection and rework stations, as well as automated through hole assembly, LCL is well placed to offer competitive procurement, assembly and testing packages.
