ABOUT US – The Outsource Electronics Specialists
OPServices is an outsource electronics manufacturing services provider formed in March 1999 and based in Lincoln, United Kingdom. We provide electronics assembly and testing services, also referred to as electronics manufacturing services (EMS) through our global market. We provide easy-access and management of contract manufacturing activities and manage complex technology transfers. OPServices provides immediate industry expertise through our network of experienced industry professionals across various disciplines including engineering, sales and business management.
The business was formed by Dave Dawson, who is the current Managing Director. Dave has himself been working within the semiconductor industry since the mid 1980’s. Starting his manufacturing career at Marconi Electronic Devices Limited (MEDL), (which later became GEC Plessey Semiconductors Ltd) , he gained extensive engineering knowledge in the assembly and testing of Hi-Reliability Space Class (SOS) & Mil-aerospace products along with a SAWF, MCM and plastic lead frame products. This solid foundation later led to a direct and increased involvement with the significant volume assembly & testing activities undertaken “offshore” by GEC Plessey. During this time he successfully completed several process and product transfers from various UK sites to facilities across South East Asia. In 1995 Dave relocated from the Lincoln site to the Swindon facility in order to create the Plessey “Centre of Excellence” which would consolidated the manufacturing group sites of Oldham, Lincoln and Plymouth into the new Swindon HQ.
On completion of the Swindon project in 1997 and with a desire to broaden his industry experience he moved in to Micronas SA of Switzerland. In this role as Subcontractor Manager he was responsible for the rapid expansion of outsourcing operations while resident in SE Asia. In support of the rapidly growing mobile communications market and key customers in Nokia (NMP) Dave was to increase production volumes from <20K/wk to over 500K/wk in < 3 months. It was in 1999 after 15 years of hugely valuable experiences across electronics manufacturing that he was to form OPServices Ltd.
OPServices have supported multiple start-up and spin-out businesses in addition to several industry “Top 100” electronic component and systems manufacturers with production and engineering services. With a tenacity to succeed OPServices continues to provide technical and manufacturing support services of semiconductor and sensor products that also include, MCM/SiP, MEMs, Thick-film and PCB.
