Thatcham, UK - there are now only 50 working days before Chinese New Year 2017.
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 November, 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 due to the global demand and impact all suppliers lead times could increase.
Do not delay, contact EMS today.
