CSM and IO Electronics MergeJune 10, 2015 | CSM Electronics Ltd
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
CSM Electronics Ltd of Wareham, Dorset, and IO Electronics Ltd of Poole, also in Dorset have officially announced their merger after months of negotiations in a bid to become one of the UK’s largest players in the electronics subcontract manufacturing arena. The vision is to become the South’s foremost authority on the manufacturing of electronic products, offering an unrivalled approach to contract electronics.
Due to CSM’s plans of relocating and joining forces at the IO Electronics site in Holes Bay, Poole, to allow for a smoother transaction both companies will trade under the name of IO Electronics Ltd. In a joint statement they said: “This is great news for our customers, suppliers and employees. CSM and IO are both focused on growth and committed to delivering the highest quality, first class PCB, cable and box build assembly services. We believe the combination of the two distinctive manufacturers who share a very similar ethos gives us the opportunity to build something very strong together.
Initially CSM customers will notice no difference other than a name change, but over time they will benefit from the increased range of specialist manufacturing services that we will be able to provide.”
The merger will be made easier by the close proximity of the two companies and the fact they already share a proportion of their existing customer base.
They added: “We now have a solid foundation on which to build a truly world class CEM that will continue to attract fresh and exciting builds as well as offering an unrivalled quality manufacturing service. By combining forces, this will reinforce our already strong reputation, allowing us to provide an enhanced range of services to our customers whilst creating new opportunities for our highly talented teams.”

Purdue’s Semiconductor Innovation Ecosystem Grows with CHIPS-funded, Indiana-led Semiconductor Hub and With Upcoming Summit09/25/2023 | Purdue University
Purdue University continues building momentum as America’s leading university in semiconductors, with a broad range of updates this fall semester.
"Electronics systems are at the heart of almost all modern technology. The performance and functionality of these systems have increased at breathtaking speed, chiefly as a result of advancements in semiconductor technology. Semiconductors do not function in isolation," writes Alison James, IPC senior director of government relations, in a 2023 report for the European Commission’s Directorate General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship. "These electronics systems feature prominently in key sectors like defence, aerospace, space, automotive, medical, and high-performance computing, but electronics are vital to every industry and are central to a variety of EU priorities, including the twin digital and green transitions and Europe’s technological sovereignty."
APCT, a leading name in the PCB and electronics industry, is delighted to announce the appointment of Peter Austin as its President and CEO, effective September 1. Peter takes the reins from former CEO, Steve Robinson, who has retired after years of dedicated service to the company.
