Our Rogerstone team has once again partnered with the STEMworks program. Students from two local schools were invited to our manufacturing facility last week for an educational visit. The participating students were winners from an engineering workshop held in November. While on their visit, they were given a tour of the facility along with a demonstration of our 3D printer, which they observed build an artificial limb. The hands-on demo provided the students with a chance to see how advanced technologies are opening up new opportunities in the manufacturing industry.
Throughout 2016 TT Electronics have demonstrated continued support and dedication to the STEMworks project across several of our sites. Most recently two Test Technicians and a Production Engineer from our Rogerstone facility have taken part in various workshops in three schools local to the Newport area.
We are proud to share that the TT Electronics team in Perry, Ohio participated in the Adopt-A-Family program for the fifth year in a row. This program provides families in the local community with assistance during the Christmas season. This year we adopted three children and each child will be receiving up to six gifts this Christmas thanks to the fundraising efforts of the Perry team. The team members are looking forward to continuing this tradition next year.
For four years running, the TT Electronics-IMS team in Perry Ohio, has held a ”Stuff the Bus" drive to raise money and school supplies for the children in our local community. TT Electronics donated 120 book bags and team members worked over the course of four hours to fill them with supplies. The donations go to 1500 needy families in Lake County.
This summer, our "Give Something Back" committee in Perry, Ohio launched a campaign to help send underprivileged kids to a local camp. The committee was able to raise funds through various events including two bake sales, an auction, a vacation day raffle and a 50/50 raffle. The total amount raised by the group was $1,260 - enough money to send three children to summer camp for a week. To all the TT Electronics team members who contributed to the success of this campaign, thank you for a job well done!

As experts in low volume, high mix electronics manufacturing services, TT Electronics works hard to ensure that our customers recieve the optimal support when it comes to supply chain management. Supply chains are increasingly complex and the global nature makes them vulnerable to a wide range of risks. Preparing for those risks and being there to supply our customers is our top priority.
In recent years aircraft manufacturers have been focused on signing new orders to fill their books. Today, with aircraft production rates forecasted to see strong growth, the focus has shifted away from signing contracts and towards ensuring that manufacturers can deliver on existing orders in the most cost effective way without sacrificing speed or quality. These operational and supply chain efficiencies measure a company’s ability to provide their products on time while meeting all the high standards that are required of this industry.
On June 15th 2016 TT Electronics Integrated Manufacturing Services hosted six students from Northleach and North Cerney primary schools at its Fairford facility. During the visit the students were inspired by a shop floor tour and a 3D printing workshop featuring Fairford’s newest technology. The students were able to develop their computer-aided design skills using CAD tools and had the opportunity demonstrate their capabilities by making specialised multi-core cables. The students also had a chance to observe a 3D printing workshop. Our Fairford staff was pleased to welcome the children from their local schools and look forward to collaborating with STEMworks in future projects.
