Chinese New Year (CNY)

Chinese New Year is a time for celebration, but the resulting manufacturing shutdown period in Asia can be a cause for concern for some customers

For customers utilising our offshore manufacturing facilities, the Chinese New Year shutdown period is something that needs to be planned and carefully managed. At Momentum Circuits, our objective is to ensure any production critical printed circuit boards are readily available during this period, and the inevitable period of disruption that follows.

This can often be an incredibly busy time for PCB manufacturing, which can limit the number of ultra-fast turnaround jobs that can be undertaken. We therefore strongly encourage the use of our UK based manufacturing facilities for any orders with critical delivery dates as the Chinese New Year approaches.

We also advise our customers to place orders as early as possible in the run-up to this period. These circuit boards will then be stored here in the UK, in a temperature- and humidity-controlled environment and in vacuum packaging with silica desiccant, to keep the printed circuit boards in optimum assembly condition. Only when the circuit boards are required will they then be invoiced, causing no unnecessary impact on your cash flow, and they will be available the same or next day.

If you have any concerns regarding your printed circuit boards over the Chinese New Year and any potential impact it may have on your business, get in touch to speak to a member of our PCB logistics team.
