PHYTEC Manufacturing

Over 25 years experience

We offer a unique manufacturing model. Our multiple lines and efficient resource planning allow us to offer high levels of customization while maintaining quality and throughput.

PHYTEC utilizes a High Mix Low Volume production model allowing configuration and schedule flexibility

We have an annual production throughput of nearly one million Printed Circuit Board Assemblies (PCBAs) at our in-house plant and partner facilities. Our internal manufacturing equipment, ISO9001:2015-certified processes, optimized component purchasing and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system enable us to cost-effectively and flexibly manage high-mix, low-to-medium volume (HMLV) manufacturing. This HMLV approach best supports our wide product palette, as well as best meets the delivery demands, quality requirements and customization needs of our diverse customer base.  Alliances with external production partners enables cost-optimization and scalability to 100K annual production volumes of such high-volume PCBAs.
