From trader to global full-service supplier
When NCAB was founded in 1993, it focused on supplying customers with high-quality PCBs from external manufacturers mainly located in Taiwan, and subsequently in China. At that time, the company was a basic trader of PCBs, without much interaction with the manufacturers.
In 2003, the company changed focus, under new management, with a vision that NCAB should be a decentralised organization with a strong local presence, both among customers and manufactures.
A close relationship with manufacturers was important to ensure high-quality PCBs. This vision was achieved partly in 2006 when the current Factory Management organisation was introduced in China, which improved both the quality of PCBs and delivery reliability to customers.
In line with the major transfer of PCB production from Europe and USA to China, NCAB has increased its market shares and moved from a position as PCB supplier to become a global full-service supplier. Today, the company has operations in 17 countries, with sales to 45 markets.
NCAB has a history of strong and profitable growth. Between 2004 and 2018, sales have increased more than sevenfold, from SEK 216 million to SEK 1,617 million, while the number of employees has grown from 50 to 388.
