Leading the way!

Leading the way!

 

Serving highly demanding and sensitive markets such as defense, aerospace, medical and telecommunications requires a provider that can meet orders within a short period of time, within the required parameters and can meet the highest quality standards. This is not a small feat to achieve; it requires a strong team, dedication, high motivation, and unrivalled levels of commitment. Many companies aspire to have these elements but just a chosen few manage. This is where leadership comes in: the leading value of a company.

 Leadership involves the responsibility to demonstrate the beliefs of the company and reinforce behaviors that reflect those values. It entails creating a vision, articulating, and passionately owning it, turning it into actions, beliefs, values, and goals to achieve the desired outcomes. It involves articulate communication of a business vision, values, and goals. These are aspects that PCB Technologies Ltd has attempted to achieve in the four decades that they have been in the business of providing a wide range of manufacturing solutions.

 

"...strong team, dedication, high motivation, and unrivalled levels of commitment."

 

  

 

The company has built a culture where leadership is nurtured among its members of staff, allowing every individual to explore their potential fully and to a level where satisfaction is derived. The highly experienced staff combined with the state-of-the-art technologies and application of the advanced All-in-one concept has enabled the company to provide leadership within as well as in the industry. All-in-one concept demands a high level of leadership. The team leader inspires the rest of the team and motivates them to work hard and deliver on time and in the desired quality. High demand for quality standards in the market that PCB Technologies Ltd serves has allowed the company to grow and provide leadership in matters of precision, innovation and service to the markets.

Defense, aerospace, medical and telecom among other essential industries are such sensitive areas, where quality standards requirements are over the roof. The need to get it right all the time and the high performance that is demanded in these industries requires a service provider who is up to the task. This is where leadership comes into play: a team must be working not just together but also sharing a common vision. The pressure to deliver fast without any defects and the precision at which the work is delivered demands high level of cooperation, discipline, and dedication. These are elements that PCB technologies has acquired and cultivated over the period of four decades in operation.

 

"The company has built a culture where leadership is nurtured among its members of staff..."

 

The desire to manufacture the products in conformity with the meticulous standards required in the industry has made the company an international leader in defense and Medical. Its commitment to meet the quality systems not only emphasizes its capability to meet the demanding conditions of the field but also provide advanced solution in highly sensitive areas.

PCB Technologies Ltd has taken the challenge well, provide leadership within the industry, guiding the players on what need to be done in order to maintain high standards and develop strategies that lead the industry towards high proficiency and great customer satisfaction. This is the true meaning of leading the way.

The All-in-one strategy for post COVID19

The All-in-one strategy for post COVID19

 

 The world has become a village, thanks to technology; the concept of globalization and unique supply chains have characterized the business world. One lesson that we have learned, albeit the hard way, is that we can be disappointed and overwhelmed when we need something from across the border or continent, but unique circumstances prevent us from getting it. Post COVID-19, the world will be better prepared, ensuring that when something is needed, it can be obtained within a reasonably short period of time and without compromising on quality.

 

 

The concept of All-in-one solution, where you can get everything you need at the same place, will have to be adopted by all who would want to survive the crisis presented by the pandemic. All-in-one will come as an advantage for customers who need printed circuit boards urgently. This is where a company like PCB Technologies LTD, All-in-one solution provider in the fabrication of high-quality printed circuit boards, comes in. It is a company that has shown leadership in the provision of a wide range of manufacturing solutions that meet the industry standards. Over the years, PCB has produced printed circuit boards for medical, defense, and industrial use. With the new challenging environment, assembling components required for printed circuit boards will require more cooperation between teams.

 

"...It is a company that has shown leadership in the provision of a wide range of manufacturing solutions that meet the industry standards."

 

Given that a printed circuit board involves several components and given that these may be located in different parts of the world, it would require greater integration in order to come up with an all-in-one strategy. The post-COVID-19 period demands that the all-in-one concept be adopted without delay and continued into the future, so that the world can handle any other crisis better than this one. This can be challenging, but with the proper industry leadership, the hurdles that stand in the way can be overcome.

 

PCB Technologies LTD score highly in this area, as it has been focusing on serving highly demanding markets over the years, including medical, telecoms, aerospace, and defense. With experienced staff, coupled with state-of-the-art technologies as well as advanced processes, customers will get innovative solutions as well as cost effective products. The company also comes as a solution for customers in need of all-in-one services, as its manufacturing and assembling lines are all under one roof. 

 

"…with the proper industry leadership, the hurdles that stand in the way can be overcome."

 

This not only reduces the turnaround time but also makes it easier to resolve any issues that may arise. Issues are sorted out quickly and effectively since all that is required is within reach. Its flexible operation also ensures rapid response times. PCB Technologies LTD will live to its vision, leading the way to a better future.

 

 

PCB Technologies CEO discusses the Coronavirus crisis

PCB Technologies CEO discusses the Coronavirus crisis

 

 

How do you carry out your role as CEO in these days?

My major role is to give people the confidence that, in spite of the extreme conditions we have all been forced to deal with, we can execute our plans and keep on our people’s health and jobs. I share my time between the PCB Technologies office and my home office, while keeping a busy business calendar — Zoom, Zoom, Zoom! Yet, I maintain social distancing on one hand and stay present with the people who come to the plant every day on the other.

 

Was the company prepared for this crisis?

Nobody was able to be prepared for such an impact on our day-to-day business and private lives. The challenge was how quickly we could react and make adjustments to our best practices and level of implementation. I am proud to say that the reaction by the people of PCB in all levels was outstanding; they showed their discipline and dedication to adopt the new guidelines of work.

 

              “…Zoom, Zoom, Zoom!”

 

What has changed with regard to company operations?

A lot has changed. We have built an ad hoc management team with the name “Winning the Corona A Team” to deal with everything related to social distancing, protection of employees, and avoiding surface contamination.

We have created a long-distance home office solution for almost 200 people, and built in organic shifts for the production floor, while opening new shifts for employees with children at home. The team has searched for every possible treatment of contamination, through human breathing or touch, and have found a creative solution to keep the operation running, but without compromising people’s safety.

 

 



Will jobs be preserved?

Yes. This was one of our priorities. It isn’t enough just to focus on people’s safety, but let them lose their jobs or income. We organize in a way that enables us to keep the vast majority of the jobs, and gives flexibility to people who cannot come to work due to new conditions.

Luckily, we are dealing mainly with medical and military equipment, so our deal flow looks positive for the time being, and we are able to deliver most of our commitments on time.

 

Are there any new company actions directly linked to the pandemic?

Definitely. We measure the body temperature of all employees in the plant at the check-in point every day, and give them all the necessary equipment to protect themselves, including masks, gloves and special uniforms, if needed. Our catering and coffee area service was adjusted to new hygienic requirements by adding more people and tools to avoid surface contamination.

 

“Luckily, we are dealing mainly with medical and military equipment, so our deal flow looks positive…”

 

 

What is your leadership credo?

A crisis is also an opportunity, and in order to get that opportunity, you need the people to be with you. So, people first! This includes sharing your thoughts, transparency about decisions, and personal care.

This crisis is also a big opportunity for our all-in-one strategy, where we offer our customers all they need, from design of the PCB, all the way to assembly of PCBA and box building.

Flexibility and agility is also part of the leadership message. We can’t use the exact same guidelines we used yesterday for tomorrow, and we must be open to adjustments. Some of them will not be comfortable or popular at the beginning, but will pay off down the road.

 

Last, but not least, believe in ourselves, stay positive, and look for how we can make fresh lemonade from the lemon.
