Our experienced team at APC Technology offers an integrated approach in our design processes including testing and prototyping of products. This means we remain ahead of any technical issues and gives our customers the opportunity to improve their products we develop for them- there is no better way to guarantee maximum performance products. Throughout the prototyping stages, we gain input and insight on how your product is meant to work, while addressing pain points along the way.


Contract manufacturing makes production possible for companies lacking an in-house development team, production facilities or test capabilities. As certified contract manufacturers, we can assist in small batch manufacturing projects as well as high levels of production on a monthly basis. Our capabilities include:

  • Build to print: Our skilled contract manufacturers have the precision and qualifications to create components of your product to your precise specifications, down to the millimetre and the materials you require.
  • Build to specifications: We can engineer and specify a component or complete product based on the needs of the client.
  • Contract Electronics: We develop and offer a cost-effective printed circuit board (PCB) assembly solution as well as other electrical components that guarantee the highest degree of quality and dependability.


We understand the importance of product testing in the defence sector. Continuous improvement is fundamental to the development and growth of our knowledge base. Our testing capabilities include:

  • Defence (Mil-Std, Def Stan)
  • Aerospace (DO-160)
  • Hazardous Location (IECEX, ATEX)
  • Rail (EN)
  • EMC
  • Mil-Std-461
