Celebrating One Year of In-House PCB Manufacturing Milestone at Lumishore

November 30th, 2023

Today is a remarkable day for Lumishore and our factory in Swansea as we celebrate a significant milestone – it’s been a whole year since we embarked on the journey of manufacturing our own PCB circuit boards in-house. Since that ground-breaking day, we’ve successfully produced an astounding 40,000 PCB circuit boards, highlighting how dedicated we are to being innovative, environmentally friendly, and at the forefront of technology.

Often referred to as the heart of electronic devices, PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards) are vital for ensuring the smooth operation of our electronics. As we reflect on this one-year journey, it's essential to acknowledge the pivotal role PCBs have played in propelling Lumishore's marine lighting solutions forward.


Sustainability in Manufacturing

At Lumishore, sustainability is not just a buzzword; it's a guiding principle that influences every aspect of our operations. With the transition to in-house PCB manufacturing, we've not only gained greater control over the production process but also enhanced our commitment to sustainability.

Our new Surface Mount Technology (SMT) facility, celebrating its 1st birthday, is a testament to this commitment. All PCB assemblies are now made in-house at Lumishore, boasting over 100 different types of PCB in production. The facility has realised the expected benefits of shorter lead times, full control over production, and improved product delivery times for our lighting products. The production of over 40,000 PCB assemblies (and counting!) reflects our dedication to meeting customer demands with agility and precision.

Innovation at the Core

Innovation is the driving force behind Lumishore's success, and the decision to bring PCB manufacturing in-house exemplifies our dedication to staying at the forefront of technological advancements.

The investment in our bespoke SMT facility, which can produce upwards of 150,000 circuit boards annually, is a strategic move to ensure improved service and quality for our customers. This advanced capability enables us to achieve faster product development cycles, all while upholding our dedication to quality and sustainability.

Looking Ahead

As we celebrate this one-year milestone, we look forward to continued growth, innovation, and sustainability. Our in-house PCB manufacturing capabilities serve as a solid foundation for Lumishore's future endeavours, ensuring that we can meet the evolving needs of our customers with agility and precision.

Our new plant, dedicated to producing printed circuit boards for our entire product range, symbolises our commitment to excellence and continuous improvement. As we pioneer advancements in marine LED lighting, the decision to bring PCB manufacturing in-house has not only strengthened our capabilities but has also solidified our position as global leaders in the marine lighting.

As we celebrate this achievement, we extend our gratitude to our dedicated team and loyal customers who have been integral to Lumishore's success. Here's to many more years of pioneering advancements and lighting up the seas!
