Matrix Telematics enhances functionality of telematics system using Newbury Electronics' PCBs

Newbury Electronics Printed Circuit Board

Newbury Electronics, the printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturer has recently completed its latest consignment of PCBs for Matrix Telematics. The two companies have been working together for more than five years and this success is based on; "the relationship, performance and cost," according to Matrix Managing Director, Geoff Ball.

He continued; "When looking for a supplier for prototype boards it was a conscious decision on our part to find a UK supplier. Over the years that we have worked with the team at Newbury Electronics we have been delighted with both the quality of the products that they engineer and also the customer service and support."

The units are incorporated into the final telematics system to provide enhanced functionality to the basic unit. One example is when a PCB is used to connect an RF receiver to provide additional driver identity information to supplement the vehicle data that is already being collated.

Philip King, Managing Director of Newbury Electronics, said; "This is another positive example of a company choosing a UK manufacturer in preference to an overseas supplier.  The quality of our work and our understanding of their requirements combined with the benefits of same day delivery, if required, are encouraging more and more UK companies to review their supply chains and look closer to home for suppliers, which is good for us and for the wider manufacturing sector."
