Frost & Sullivan Honours Europlacer for its R&D-based Growth in the EMS Market for the Aerospace & Defence Industry

Feb 16, 2015

Based on its recent analysis of the market for electronics manufacturing services (EMS) providers for the aerospace and defence (A&D) industry, Frost & Sullivan recognises Europlacer with the 2015 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Growth Excellence Leadership.

Europlacer has been an unqualified success in the A&D industry due to its efforts to revolutionise its operations and address customer demand for reliable and high-quality EMS. It has consistently invested in improving its highly functional and capable robotic machines while presenting a wide variety of value-added services to A&D original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

A significant factor setting Europlacer apart from its competitors is its market penetration levels over the last few years,” said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Apoorva Ravikrishnan.

“Its business growth strategy and exceptional service capabilities have not only cemented its position in the market but are also helping it acquire new clients.

Europlacer grew by 22.5 percent between 2012 and 2013, and its growth in 2014 was even more impressive at approximately 30 percent. This growth is borne out of its ability to supply advanced robotic machines with many standard tools, which enhance placement accuracy, actual placement rates, and changeover times. Furthermore, the company’s technology enables A&D OEMs to offer traceability, conduct an electrical test of the components, monitor production, accommodate any size of printed circuit board (PCB), and deliver excellent speed and throughput.

Europlacer's keen focus on advanced technologies enables it to distinguish itself by creating customised capital equipment. For example, it has effectively operated with the A&D industry’s PCB designs, which are more complex, heavily populated with diverse packages, and have broad size ranges. Additionally, the company invests heavily in technology to develop multi-functional capital equipment and improve its current portfolio to meet unique customer needs.

To extend its advantage in the EMS market, Europlacer has engaged in many brand-building activities,” noted Ravikrishnan. “These efforts have paid off as OEMs have become more aware of Europlacer and associate the brand with reliability, quality and specialised expertise.”

The company goes the extra mile to provide superior value and best possible customer experience by accepting customer feedback and suggestions. Overall, owing to its best-in-class performance, Europlacer is recognised with Frost & Sullivan’s 2015 Global Growth Excellence Leadership Award.

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in growth and customer value. It recognises the superiority of the product/service as well as the overall customer, purchase, ownership and service experience offered, which has resulted in the recipient company seeing above-market growth and increased share of wallet. The award lauds the growth, diversification and sustainability strategies of the company.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices awards recognise companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.


Europlacer became a division of Parable Trust Ltd. in 2013. Europlacer has been developing machines for SMT electronics assembly since the 1970s and invented the intelligent feeder concept in the 1980s. After acquisition by Blakell Europlacer in 1991, the company moved away from split-axis to the inherently more capable X-Y architecture that underpins the company's pick-and-place machines today. Europlacer's policy has been to ensure wherever possible that technology purchased many years ago, especially feeders, remain compatible with the latest pick-and-place equipment. Europlacer designs and manufactures a comprehensive range of highly flexible SMT pick-and-place systems for the global electronics industry.
