“We are committed to providing you with the
optimal solution to meet your exact needs.”
In addition Powerstax provides value-added and complete custom power solutions; the extensive experience of their engineering team in power (including thermal, mechanical and EMC/EMI) design along with their advanced development lab and CAD tools allows the rapid design and realisation of custom power solutions from several watts to kilowatts. Powerstax are often able to offer a custom solution for lower volumes than other suppliers due to the ‘Value Added’ approach they use which bases the final product on their field-proven and patented brick technology. This also leads to the provision of a solution on a quick timescale and with minimal NRE charges.
The company is a rapidly expanding with more than half of our employees being electronic or mechanical engineers, clearly demonstrating our commitment to research, development and design excellence. ISO9001 approved, samples, prototypes and low volumes are produced in the UK and volume production is undertaken with our manufacturing partner in China, with whom we have had a longstanding and positive relationship.
The company head office is located at:
Unit 5 Armstrong Mall,
