Hindley Circuits Share Training Success

We were delighted to once again welcome one of the UK’s leading trusted IPC training, Process consultancy and electronics consumable product providers – Exmel Solutions Ltd – to Hindley Circuits to strengthen our capabilities.

Exmel’s Technical Training Manager, Iain McMillan, delivered 32 days’ worth of theoretical, hands-on and personable training to both the engineering and management team, comprising 36 staff members at our extensive facilities.

All of our operators, technicians, engineers and shop floor management are fully certified on the worldwide recognised IPC-A-610 Operator Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies standard as Certified IPC Specialists. These standards form part of our product quality management requirements to ensure manufacturing consistency throughout our processes.

Exmel will also provide training for a selected team on the J-STD-001 Operator Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies standard.  Adding the J-STD-001 certification to our team will allow us to expand our manufacturing services further and assist with growth in Automotive, Aerospace, Defence, Medical and Oil & Energy business sectors.

Speaking about delivering the training, Iain said: “It is always great to work with Hindley as they are so passionate about what they do and are always looking to push themselves to be the very best they can be.

“The fact that over two thirds of the staff have received the training is impressive, showing their commitment to ensure high standards are delivered at every level within the business. We look forward to working with this progressive company for any future training requirements.”

Through achieving and sustaining such high standards – with training delivered by one of the most reputable providers – our customers benefit from an extended product lifetime and our staff benefit from continual professional development.

Hindley Appoints New Senior Buyer

We are delighted to have recently welcomed to the Hindley Circuits team, Keiran Casey, who joins the company as a Senior Buyer.

Keiran brings with him over four years of manufacturing operations experience – specialising in supply chain processes – having most recently worked as a Productions Operations Coordinator at AVID Technology. He also has a very keen interest in engineering and earlier this year successfully completed an HNC in Electrical and Electronics Engineering.

As part of his day to day activities, Keiran is responsible for managing buying procedures and processes, implementing cost down protocols and will be applying his technical knowledge to further lead and support the purchasing department.

As we always look to add value for our customers, Keiran is already well underway with building relationships with our trusted suppliers to ensure that we continue to operate in a lean and efficient manner. As such, he will be in charge of performance management and auditing of suppliers monitoring quality and service.

Keiran is already proving to be a fantastic asset to our growing team and we would like to wish him the best of luck in his new role.

Hindley Circuits Strengthens Network in the Energy Sector

We are delighted to announce that – as part of our growth plans – we are now members of NOF, Subsea UK and Engineering and Manufacturing Network (EMN, formerly CDEMN).

We are keen to explore the potential for Hindley Circuits within the energy sector, particularly the oil and gas and renewables market. As such, establishing a foothold with well-known networking organisations such as NOF, Subsea UK and EMN is a great place for us to start as they bring together operators, contractors, suppliers and key decision makers within the entire energy supply chain to collaborate on key projects across the globe.

And this comes on the back of Hindley Circuits securing – and already successfully delivered – our largest contract to date with a large multinational oil and gas company operating across 140 countries. As a part of the contract, we manufactured complex analysis equipment which was then utilised for nationally important infrastructure.

As we continue to invest in both training of staff and having the latest state of the art equipment, we believe this will place the business in good stead in the energy sector, as it also does with our current markets. All of the training deployed across the business equips us to deliver to the very highest standards in the energy sector, which is well known for its rigorous demands.
