High-tech manufacturing refers to the production of advanced technological products using cutting-edge techniques, processes, and materials. It typically involves the use of sophisticated machinery, automation, and advanced materials such as semiconductors, electronics, aerospace components, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and advanced robotics.

At DPF, we work with a number of high-profile global high-tech companies. Our facilities are fully equipped to accommodate the most demanding projects, enabling our customers to outsource the manufacture of critical components and sub-assemblies across both the semiconductor and industrial solutions sectors.

Key characteristics of high-tech manufacturing include:

  • Advanced Technology: High-tech manufacturing relies heavily on advanced technology, including computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), robotics, nanotechnology, and 3D printing. The advances in IoT, cloud computing and automated technologies has created high demand for semiconductor manufacturing equipment – a challenge that DPF has met head-on, supporting our customers to scale their business within this sector.
  • Precision and Quality: Products manufactured in high-tech industries often require extremely high levels of precision and quality control to meet exacting standards. We have mature and robust quality management systems in place that help us to provide full product lifecycle supply chain management services.
  • Innovation: High-tech manufacturing is characterised by a constant drive for innovation, with companies continually investing in research and development to create new products and improve existing ones. DPF has invested in Industry 4.0, lights-out manufacturing and other manufacturing processes to ensure we create efficiencies that continue to offer value to our clients.
  • Skilled Workforce: The workforce in high-tech manufacturing typically includes highly skilled engineers, technicians, and scientists who are capable of operating complex machinery and developing innovative solutions. Our highly skilled team have considerable experience and skills in design, machinery, tooling and process engineering, and are able to develop and manufacture key components in fast-moving marketplaces.
  • Global Supply Chains: High-tech manufacturing often involves global supply chains, with components sourced from various countries and final assembly taking place in different locations. We have an extensive partner network enabling us to develop relationships that facilitate sourcing and distribution of key parts and components.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Due to the complex nature of high-tech products, manufacturers must adhere to strict regulations and standards, particularly in industries such as aerospace, healthcare, and electronics. At DPF, we work with an extensive range of industry compliant materials adhering to strict protocols in highly regulated industries. We have a proven track record within the industry for meeting these exacting standards.

To ensure ongoing compliance and demonstrate our commitment to delivering outstanding services to our clients, we are accredited with a number of standards which include ISO 9001 (Quality Management), ISO 13485 (Medical Devices) and AS9100 (Aerospace & Defence).
