Acquisition of Hunter Cable Assemblies Ltd

EC Electronics are pleased to announce the acquisition of Hunter Cable Assemblies Ltd (HCAL) from Arcum Ltd.

EC Electronics have a strategy of long term growth by acquisition and adding HCAL to the group represents a major step forward with these plans.  The synergies between the two businesses are strong and HCALs established foothold in the UK manufacturing market will compliment the EC structure.

The new enlarged group will offer customers an enhanced selection of services and technical support.

Phil Simmonds, Group Managing Director of EC Electronics said:

“I believe that the EC group is a great home for HCAL, we are wholly dedicated to Electronic Manufacturing Services and the addition of HCAL increases group revenue significantly.

At EC Electronics we believe there is excellent growth potential for mid-sized cable assembly and box build specialists in the UK and mainland Europe.  HCAL will significantly strengthen the groups UK capabilities.

HCAL has an excellent reputation for quality and customer service, both of which have contributed to recent growth in the business.  We hope to build on this and support the continued growth of HCAL in the coming years.”

HCAL will continue operating as an independent business from the existing premises in Theale under the existing management team.

EC Electronics was established in 1984 as a cable assembly business and now offers full Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) including PCB assembly, box build, low pressure overmoulding, design, supply chain services and product realisation.
