while also planning for success in volume production? Is price the only deciding factor or is the overall cost being measured? Price is the simplest, but often the least accurate, standard by which to measure PCB sourcing. Time spent to quote, order, handle engineering questions, schedule SMT production, man- age logistics, paperwork and de- liverables, and resolve potential quality or design issues are all elements that contribute to the total cost of a single PCB. Also, consider the value of the rela- tionship with the end customer as it concerns the success or fail- ure of the build.


Choosing a PCB Supplier


Partnering with the right PCB supplier is critical for suc- cess. Board Shark has more than 20 years of experience develop- ing trusted relationships with PCB fabricators around the world.


Understanding the “sweet spot” of each individual factory is one of the company’s greatest as- sets when delivering a cus- tomer’s product on time and at a competitive price.


The company also strives to listen to and understand its cus- tomers, supporting them quick- ly, correctly and cost-effectively by managing design review and quoting from its office in Vancou- ver, Washington.


Board Shark considers the customer’s entire need at the quoting stage, not just price. Lead time, risk, design attrib- utes, materials availability, ca- pacity and throughput required for each build, transit time, and likelihood of schedule flexibility (push or pull), are evaluated as well.


The difficulties of the past year are hard to overstate, but, it has not come without some unex- pected benefits for domestic PCB suppliers. First came the tariffs, then came the Chinese New Year, which due to COVID, was extended from a couple of weeks to several months. Manufactur- ing and supply were interrupted, though the demand for PCBs was not.


Firms immediately began to evaluate new regions and quick- ly found themselves in a rush of similar-thinking competitors. For example, Taiwan has been building PCBs for more than 40 years and was relatively unfazed by the COVID outbreak. But, with increased demand, Tai- wanese factories quickly filled to maximum capacity.


Many companies who pivot- ed to source PCBs from Taiwan lost the critical support they needed because they did not al- ready have relationships in place with trusted supplies. Board

Shark was prepared for this, and so far during the pandemic, its customers have enjoyed trouble- free scheduling and support. The greatest challenges have been in transit, since manufacturing for its builds has continued undis- turbed.


In fact, the company offered the ideal solution for customers who looked to transition to sourc- ing PCBs from Taiwan, with its decades-long relationships with both quick-turn and high-volume factories.


With a board spend in the


millions of dollars at each factory and well-established relation- ships with the management teams and owners of every facili- ty, Board Shark’s builds re- mained the “big fish” in the sud- den struggle for capacity and service. The company’s technical staff, located at its U.S. office, of- fers speed and technical under- standing of each individual quote.


Excelling in quick, accurate quote turnaround times allows customers to win business and place orders quickly and confi-


dently. The company’s Taiwanese structure enables it to provide consistent three- to five-day deliv- eries to U.S. customers, even for critically complex builds. Board Shark also offers domestically manufactured boards, as well as PCBs from China, providing a fit- ting solution for each individual customer and every requirement.
