Electronics manufacturer sparks growth plans with new MD appointment

A Falmouth-based contract electronics manufacturer has recruited a new managing director.

Jon Hurrell has taken the helm, strengthening the senior management team with a wealth of experience gained in a variety of manufacturing environments.

Started by Dean Haney and Jason O’Connell more than 14 years ago, Sellectronics has been at the forefront of the UK’s electronic engineering with its specialist printed circuit board (PCB) manufacture sitting at the epicentre of numerous electronic applications.

Specialising in managing quick turn-around prototype assembly and low volume/high mix production demands, the company develops strategies to support external and in-house test requirements for high level reliability and performance of PCBs and sub systems.

The PCB industry has seen massive growth and Sellectronics is mirroring industry trends with the PCB global market valued at 78 billion USD in 2021 and forecast expectations of growth to 128 billion USD in 2030.

Hurrell says: “Dean and Jason are the brains behind Sellectronics and the achievements secured by this SME to date are extraordinary. Their dominant expertise lies in the technical aspects of the business, ensuring the company delivers the most up to date cutting edge solutions. My role is to be able to shape and develop the business further, so that it can maximise the opportunities the expanding market offers.

“To be joining at this time, when the industry is so buoyant, when the company is ready for the next stage of expansion is enormously exciting.”

Recognised for their innovative, high-quality PCB assembly, Sellectronics offers a range of services from small cable forms, to complex multi-level surface mount circuit board assembly, developing superior products based on individual requirements.

Haney added: “Jon’s recruitment is a significant new chapter in our company’s growth. Understanding and listening to our clients has created our agile electronic manufacturing service. Listening to the needs of ourselves has been our next step and Jon’s expertise will give Jason and me the freedom to dedicate our specialisms on the product, allowing the company to thrive further under Jon’s expertise.”
