Background of CAD World

CAD WORLD (UK) LIMITED was formed in April 2004 to provide PCB design services to the electronics industry.

Over the course of our time we have worked with many companies in various engineering sectors gaining a broad knowledge of the many technologies and disciplines required in PCB design and manufacture.

Our customers have varied from small start-ups, to Multi-Nationals. We have worked on projects and designs from 1-off conception prototypes to mass production in the thousands and therefore understand the different requirements of each customer and project.

We pride ourselves on quality, innovation and knowledge. We can help you realise your design project goals with efficiency and skill.

Get in touch! We are always happy to discuss what you require and how we can help.
