Contract electronics manufacturer Axiom Manufacturing Services has been awarded the ISO27001 accreditation as the company continues to build its commitment to protecting the information owned and under its care.
ISO 27001 is a best practice framework for an information security management system (ISMS) which enables organisations to identify the risks to their important information and implement appropriate controls to reduce the risks. The focus of the standard is on continually improving policies, processes and working practices. Certification to ISO 27001 provides organisations with an independent verification of its ability to manage information security
David Davies, managing director at Axiom Manufacturing Services, said: “We have always operated a comprehensive security strategy for governance, risk, and compliance. With recent events around the globe it has now become even more important than ever, and our ISO 27001 certification reaffirms our commitment to providing robust information

Knowledge transfer, especially from the “graying-out” experienced technical workers in our industry, is a complex, difficult family of problems. It differs wildly between companies, and even within divisions of the same company. One of the biggest barriers is the full manufacturing schedules in North American electronics companies that don’t leave any slack time—and the 40-hour work week is a complete fantasy for many.

Buy new or make do? It’s an age-old debate for manufacturers who are trying to decide how best to manage machine assets inside their manufacturing facilities. New machines are expensive, but so is operating existing machines at a comparative deficit.
Duane Benson, Screaming Circuits
It’s easy to frame all our supply chain woes around the COVID-19 pandemic. However, at Screaming Circuits, we started receiving dire warnings about component shortages in early 2018. At that time, we were told that the supply upheaval could last years and that we should expect it to get much worse before it got better. Now, four years later, I would say those warnings nailed it.
