Rebound celebrates its 10th anniversary

We were delighted to celebrate our 10th anniversary in style, with an events day followed by a Moroccan-themed party at a Donnington Park Hotel, Newbury.

Simon Thake launched Rebound Electronics in 2003, which has has grown from strength to strength through tough economic conditions, to a company of over 250 employees in over 11 countries.

We celebrated in style at the hotel, which had been transformed into a typical Moroccan setting, including Bedouin-style drapes, candlelight, low sofas and ornaments. These were all complimented with belly dancers, fire-throwers, as well as a feast of exotic foods for the 200 guests.

We’d like to thank all of our customers for their continued support!

What is Strategic Sourcing and Why Is It Important?

There are few industries more dependent on a reliable supply of components than electronics manufacturing. Here’s how strategic sourcing could help.

The MLCC Shortage: Will it Continue in 2020?

Because of the popularity of MLCCs, there has been an industry-wide shortage for the past two years. Currently, lead times are up to 50 weeks on new orders, some suppliers aren’t accepting new orders for MLCCs and others are cancelling existing orders.

In response to the shortage, some component manufacturers have imposed allocations on the amount of MLCCs that can be ordered by OEMs, and many have increased the price of their MLCCs, even applying this increase to orders that have already been placed. Due to this, many OEMs are struggling to complete their own productions and are reaching line-stops.
