Many materials, such as thick copper, exotic materials and flex materials, are hard to come by. Prices have also risen significantly since March of this year. At AQC we do everything we can to guarantee the continuity of processes. In this way we ensure that you experience as little inconvenience as possible.
Co-owner Erwin Lemmens: “Fortunately, the PCB world is less affected by the global shortages than the components sector, but there is definitely a big problem. Delivery times are longer, prices are higher and various parties are buying larger volumes, going on a hoarding spree.
Within the AQC network, we still have plenty of options available to our customers. We are a small organization and very flexible. The lines of communication within our company are short, which enables us to switch quickly. In addition, we work with production partners who are also flexible. The large majority of these partners still have sufficient material in stock for us. And when importing products, we have various options, depending on the urgency, to get the product to the customer.
We find it important that customers can count on us. All these things ensure relatively short lead times and mean that we can still deliver on time. In this way we ensure the continuity of your processes and prevent machines from stagnating or you from having to adjust your planning. We hope that in this way we can offer some stability in these hectic times.
