As the European leader in Space PCB market with our DAS (Defence – Aero – Space) division, it is a logical consequence for ELVIA PCB GROUP, as well as a source of pride, to learn the qualification of its elvia Brittany – A&P Lithos facility by the European Space Agency (ESA) for its sculpted flex PCBs.
«This qualification is a continuation of what we do and master from nearly 15 years » Yannick Pedron, elvia Brittany – A&P Lithos Director.
It’s indeed a beautiful story of innovation and technological competence that unites the sculpted flex PCB technology to the know-how of our teams of Elvia Brittany – A&P Lithos to. They knew how to develop this power connection PCB technology more than 10 years ago to meet the space sector requirements with the CNES qualification and recognition. Today, it is again, the great reliability and the power capacity guaranteed by our sculpted flex PCBs that legitimately qualify us for ESA selected space programs such as launchers, satellites and many others prestigious and enthralling projects.
A qualification that illustrates ELVIA PCB GROUP’s strategy and determination to broaden its scope internationally.
With this ESA qualification, our sculpted flex expert is expanding its presence in the European and global market, driven by the export development strategy of ELVIA PCB GROUP.
The ESA qualification is a prerequisite to enter International Space market. It allows companies to demonstrate their capacity for adaptation to the requirements and the rigour imposed by this sector constantly improving.
The evidence being the small number of qualified companies that does not exceed 6. Among them, you can find two companies of elvia PCB Group : elvia Brittany – A&P Lithos, the only one qualified in sculpted flex and elvia Loire Valley – CIRETEC, accustomed to space program in ELVIA PCB GROUP for many years now.
We have already mentioned it in our last article¹, SuperCam is far from being our last space program, follow us on LinkedIn to stay up-to-date!
