For 30 years Cogent Technology has been offering value added Contract Electronics Manufacturing services, specialising in PCB assembly, full box build and electromechanical assembly for both the industrial and medical sectors.

Cogent Technology offer three levels of service to meet the needs of our clients: Fast Track, for when you need development prototypes at rapid turnaround times; New Product Introduction – bringing control and added expertise, such as PFMEA and DFM feedback, to ensure your product is proven, documented and ready for full-scale production. And finally, Series Production offers flexibility for you through scheduled orders and our KANBAN service.

We are proud of the longevity of our customer relationships. Aside from performing as a manufacturer on quality, price and delivery, one of the key attractions for our customers is our open-book pricing policy – the cornerstone of trust in our relationships, and your assurance of competitiveness.

Cogent Technology’s surface-mount production capability is chosen for its combination of precision, speed and reduced set-up time – enabling greater flexibility for product builds, and very competitive costs for low-to-medium volumes. We offer conformal coating; full box builds, wave and selective wave soldering, hot-bar soldering, through-hole, slide line and in-house tests – including support for flying probes and as an ISO 9001 and 13485 accredited manufacturer, all our procedures conform to rigorous standards – ensuring traceability, control and compliance are second to none.

Like all successful organisations, Cogent Technology are committed to continuous improvement, and ongoing investment in technology and people. In 2014 the management team took a step back and performed an end to end review of the business.  What started out as a way of ‘knitting’ other systems together quickly developed into a fully centralised, integrated monitoring and planning system they branded MaPS which is now completely embedded into the organisation and central to everything they do.

MaPS is a revolution in quality by embedding QMS systems, productivity and consequently on time delivery, bringing benefits to the company, its stakeholders and most importantly, its customers.
