Our values

Reliability, quality and commitment are just some of the values that define what we do and how we do it. This means that every step in the production of our PCBs is a piece of high-quality workmanship.

Quality is the number one priority for the printed circuit board manufacturer KSG

Quality

For us, rattling indicates poor craftsmanship. Whether it's for small sample runs or for large series, everything needs to sit firmly on your PCB so that your product works reliably. For this reason, our promise of quality starts with the selection of materials – and only ends once your product has been successfully launched.

KSG goes the extra mile when it comes to developing new printed circuit board solutions.

The extra mile

Current always travels to the potential equalisation by the shortest path. That makes us different. We are professionals in useful detours. Here we demonstrate our perseverance. Here we learn new things. We set off on new paths without a map or a Sat Nav. But always with our goal in view – and curiosity in our backpack. For our customers we think outside the box. And discover undreamt-of possibilities.

Reliability - the principle used by engineers, developers and consultants

Reliability

We only make big promises if we can keep them. We employ great doers, not big talkers. Our engineers, developers and advisors always make clear statements that our customers can rely on. A good supplier must be 100% reliable.

Personal and competent advice is the key to the phrase "People make the difference"

People make the difference.

When you call us, we take it personally. That's because at our end of the phone, there's a real person who speaks your language and is open to your needs. This means that our customers can quickly make contact with expert advisors, forward-thinking developers, and dedicated engineers. We are smarter together.
