**** New Panasonic AM100 Placement Machine ****

November 25, 2017

AM100 Image

The Shareholders and Management are proud to announce the arrival of a new Panasonic AM100 pick and place machine.  After many months of consideration and planning (and one or two transport delays) this new equipment has finally arrived and is being commissioned for use throughout December and beyond.

We are investing over £250,000 to ensure that we can fully support the designs and technology being used by our customers.  We have chosen to partner with Panasonic to provide the placement machine.  Panasonic are a well known and trusted brand in electronics and this investment will significantly improve the capacity that we can offer, and reduce downtime between jobs.

Having taken over as Managing Director earlier this year, Simon Norris explained “the growth in new customers over the last year has significantly stretched our ageing SMT line, so the investment that we are making in our new production line will offer benefits to all of our customers.”

“As a Contract Electronics Manufacturer it is important that our line offers capability, flexibility and reliability. Our line can be expected to be making different products for different customers every day of the week, so the ability to change quickly between products is a key element in improving service levels to our customers. The Panasonic AM100 placement machine gives us a high-mix SMT solution, that is to say it is a great “all rounder” offering us speed and capability with quick changeover between jobs.  We are all very excited about our new line and can’t wait to get it installed and working for our customers to see it in action.”

If you would like to visit to see the machine operating and to discuss any new or ongoing projects, please contact Emma Wrigglesworth or Simon Norris.

Further pictures of the installed line and capabilities will follow soon.

Cyber Security Information

September 02, 2017

You may have seen recently in the media stories regarding the use of email addresses that have been obtained fraudulently and that are being used in large-scale phishing activities.

Criminals have always distributed fraudulent emails in large quantities in the hope that they can get more information, either through infecting PCs with malware or by getting a reply or unsubscribe request, that they can then sell on or use for other criminal activities.

These messages can often try to impersonate a number of brands, including Contract Production, and are designed to trick you into opening attachments which will infect your PC with Malware.

At Contract Production, we have seen an increase in the volume of spam or junk emails being sent to us and we have recently updated our cyber security systems and policies to manage this.

Please be reminded that Contract Production will only send invoices & other documents as .pdf attachments, and never as an embedded link.

Please be very wary of all emails that seem suspicious.  If you receive an email purporting to be from Contract Production, which seems unusual in any way, please do not click on any link, and contact us via phone if you are unsure of its authenticity.

Many thanks.

Made In Yorkshire Drinks 3 Made In Yorkshire Drinks 1

Emma Wrigglesworth is pictured here attending the recent Made In Yorkshire drinks event in Leeds.

CPL joined Made In Yorkshire earlier this year to help promote businesses across the region.  By attending local exhibitions, and networking events such as this we’ve already identified a number of partners for both buying and selling.

Its well worth talking with Chrissie Gale or another member of the team.

Contract Production is proud to manufacture in Yorkshire, and whilst our business dealings have few boundaries, its always nice to have a positive word and feedback from Yorkshire folk!
