Thatcham, UK - there are now only 30 working days before Chinese New Year 2017.
By Tuesday 3rd January, the first official day of work in England, in 2017, only 18 working days will remain.
The impact of Chinese New Year on component supply, most directly noticeable on PCB supply, can last for up to six weeks, before, during and after the holiday.
Getting your orders placed in December or very early January can offset this and ensure continuity of supply.
If this is not possible EMS can help to resource components, especially PCBs, from locations which are not directly affected by the Chinese New Year. But the global demand due to Chinese New Year could lead to these alternative sources being overwhelmed.
Do not delay, contact EMS today.
