On 1 May 1991, Diatron Assembly Systems Ltd was born. It boasted a total of four employees, all experienced in PCB assembly, plus Eileen Fisher as Managing Director - and a small industrial unit at Felthorpe, on the outskirts of Norwich.
In the three years following its founding, Diatron established a reputation for quality and reliability to the point where larger premises were needed to accommodate the expanding business.
A new, modern 3,900 sq. metre unit in Hurricane Way, only minutes from Norwich Airport and the city centre, enabled Diatron to expand the workforce and re-equip to meet customer demands.
Still more space was required so a mezzanine floor was built to house the QA, test and purchasing departments.
Diatron has continued from strength to strength.
During the last four years Diatron has updated its surface mount facility and expanded the procurement department, offering an even wider variety of services.
As part of our continual improvement and strive for perfection a new Automated Optical Inspection system was installed.
Diatron invest in 2 new laser guided surface mount placement machines increasing their surface mount capacity.
Diatron procures the latest Ersa IR550 surface mount rework station allowing accurate removal and refit of fine pitch and BGA devices.
Diatron's ongoing programme of equipment upgrade and site development ensures that it will continue to provide customers with the very highest level of service - well into the future.
Diatron invest in a second Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) line with the installation of the latest Nordson system.
