Capabilities

We understand your resources are in high demand. Choosing a supply partner often hinges on their ability to support current production as well as the successful launch of new programs. Our business model is structured to meet these challenges.

From Concept to Prototype to Production…Our engineering professionals will work closely with your staff, offering creative alternatives and solutions that will improve your quality and productivity.

Design & Development

PCA’s sales and engineering teams can work virtually or at your facility to assist in the design process.  Key areas of this function are proper component selection, custom connectors and load centers designed specifically for your application, 2D/3D AutoCad and ProE, and optimized harness routings.

Rapid Prototypes

With an extensive component library, strong purchasing presence, and dedicated prototype team, our Engineering department is able to support prototype builds in a condensed time frame.

Program Managers

To support both prototypes and production launches, PCA has dedicated employees to coordinate the design, sampling, start-up, PPAP, and production requirements of all new products. These individuals also oversee Engineering modifications associated with revision changes to ensure your supply chain is not interrupted during product transition.

Cad Drawings

Our engineering department can turn your battery cable and wire harness needs into a 2D manufacturing print and export the data directly to your Cad template. This allows your engineers to explain their needs without spending time sifting through websites and drawing complex prints. Our goal is to get your project off the ground quickly and efficiently.

Logistics Management

With nearly two full ocean containers a week out of our Qingdao facility, we are able to provide you the advantages of overseas manufacturing with the small minimum order quantities you would normally expect out of Domestic production.

US and Chinese Manufacturing Facilities

Based on design, PCA will determine the most cost effective location for production. With manufacturing locations in Brookfield, WI and Qingdao, China, we can optimize both material and labor savings within your product.

Engineering and Quality Staff

Both of our facilities have full-time Engineering and Quality Assurance staffs. This allows our two locations to collaborate with nearly round the clock service coverage and a single point of contact to the customer.

Inventory Management Systems

PCA has the ability to adapt to nearly any supply chain system required for your production. Our systems such as Vendor Managed Inventory, Kanban, and EDI are all versions of customized stocking programs put in place for our customers.
