Celebrates Five Years in State-of-the-Art Facility in Southampton, UK
Philadelphia, PA (August 23, 2013) PEI-Genesis, Inc., one of the world’s fastest assemblers of precision connectors and power supplies, is proud to celebrate their fifth year anniversary in the current European headquarters & production facility, located in Southampton, UK. The company opened its first UK facility fourteen years ago in Reading, UK, making PEI one of the pioneer value-added distributors to have a pan-European approach. Since that opening, the company’s European division has experienced rapid growth and has outgrown two prior production facilities. During that period it added five additional sales offices in Germany, Denmark, Italy, France and Turkey.
PEI-Genesis’ state-of-the-art Southampton facility is 7,000 square meters (75,000 sq. ft.). The Southampton facility assembles, tests, packages and ships 6,000 value-added connectors every day with an average turnaround time of 1.2 working days. Over the five years at this facility, the company has shipped 7 million connectors. This speed is the force behind the company’s standard 48 hour assembly promise on almost all value-added connectors, allowing PEI to provide just-in-time (JIT) delivery as a supply chain solution to their European customers. The only other production facility in the world that can consistently match this speed is PEI’s North American facility in South Bend, IN, USA.
PEI-Genesis recognizes the strength of its long-term customer relationships as a major factor driving their rapid growth in Europe. The company also credits its solid supplier relationships, particularly with industry leaders such as Amphenol, ITT Cannon, TE/Deutsch, CINCH, Polamco, Emerson Network Power and Excelsys, for its success.
Today, PEI-Genesis’ UK-based employees will celebrate in style, with an afternoon barbeque, games and events, all with the theme of Sports Day. “We are proud of the hard work and strong customer and supplier relationships that have gotten us to five years of success in this building, as well as fourteen years of success in Europe generally,” said Tony Houghton, UK site manager, PEI-Genesis. “After doubling in size several times and outgrowing two facilities so quickly, we finally selected a location that gives us room to continue to grow at this rate. We are happy to celebrate today, and we look forward to the next five years and beyond in Southampton.”
