About ETL

Electronic Technicians Ltd (ETL) was established in 1984 and is based in Ferndown, Dorset. We are a total solution contract electronic manufacturer, operating from a modern 12000 sq ft facility.

Two things underscore our success over the years: our total quality culture, practised company-wide across all disciplines in the business; and an excellent team of people who bring expertise, focus and dedication to everything we do. This commitment is highlighted by formal accreditations including ISO9001:2008, ISO14001:2004 and the prestigious AS9100 – Rev C International Standard for aerospace suppliers.

Our extensive production capabilities cover a broad range of manufacturing applications from complex harness assembly, mixed technology PCB assembly, conformal coating & encapsulation to final product assembly, test and repair. Through these excellent resources, we offer a comprehensive contract electronic manufacturing service that is tailored to our customers’ exact needs, including fast track prototyping, project management and full turnkey manufacture.
