Great Products

OUR STORY

Boardera was founded in 2020, but the ideas behind it have been brewing for many years.  It started with a company that wanted to offer new electronic products to the market.  Frustrated with mistakes and misunderstandings in design intent made by contract manufacturers, they decided to manufacture in-house.  But what to do with the excess capacity on the manufacturing line?  Become a contract manufacturer, of course!  That's when they discovered first-hand that being a contract manufacturer isn't so easy - those mistakes and misunderstandings weren't a result of poor quality manufacturers; they were a symptom of fundamental problems with the entire industry.

 

That's when "we" set out to build an advanced design intent capture and ordering platform.  We discovered that a lot of designers and manufacturers have the same problems and need the same solutions.  Blending our founders' unique experience with electronics design, contract manufacturing, automation, and web software development, we believe we can give the printed circuit boards manufacturing industry the push it needs.  More of a shove, actually.

 

It's been an interesting journey - but you can now order your PCBs and Assemblies online; fast, and error-free.
