Company History- UK Electronics assembly

History of ESD Ltd. – UK Electronics PCB Assembly.

  • 1999

    Customer Driven

    Paul worked as a sales rep for a large electronics distribution company. When that business was sold his biggest customer asked for help. Paul agreed to continue to source their computer consumables and components for them. ESD grew from this customer request.

  • 2001

    Going into Production

    Driven by further customer requests Linda joined Paul. She assembled prototypes and small quantity production batches. This rapidly led to the need for a production line, and so ESD started to offer sub contract electronic assembly.

  • 2002


    In May 2002 Essential Services and Distribution became a limited company. ESD Ltd.

  • 2008

    New headquarters

    As the business grew and more staff were employed, the company moved to a much larger premesis in Netherton. Production requirements continued to increase.

  • 2010


    ESD's had by now become PCB Assembly Specialists. At customer request, ESD worked hard to attain accreditation to ISO9001:2008. (This has since been updated to ISO9001:2015 - our certificate can be downloaded on our Downloads page)

  • 2014

    New Improved Premesis

    ESD moved into a much larger premisis in 2014. This site has room to expand, and a lot more parking spaces. The flexibility of the site is ideal as our customer's requirements for different types of assembly are constantly changing. Production facilities can be re-arranged to better suit customer needs as necessary.

  • 2018


    Once more our customer needs drove changes at ESD. We installed a new, high speed, high volume production line in a second location on-site in Stourbridge. We use this line for customers requiring high volume surface mount only products. This enables ESD to better compete with foreign markets, keeping electronics manufacturing in the UK.
