“We saw that here there was a partner we could rely on to help us achieve our goal to perfect the most advanced capabilities in the marketplace and deliver the most complex products within the fastest turnaround times. We also selected YJ Link and Altus as our preferred board handling supplier. The equipment is well designed, robust and good value for money, but again the key deciding factor for me was the willingness of the staff to offer support and help, beyond the norm. Another good business partnership has been formed.”
