Intelliconnect (Europe) Ltd, the largest UK based manufacturer of RF and waterproof connectors offers its customers a level of customer service which sets it apart from its competitors making it an ideal partner for all connector supplies.
Gavin Mintern, Sales manager of Intelliconnect Europe, says,” a common complaint from customers is about non-responsive connector suppliers who take weeks to respond to enquiries, if indeed they respond at all! Our response times are measured in hours, not days or weeks and our deliveries, including custom designs, are shipped in weeks not months.”
Intelliconnect source all of their components and manufacture their extensive range of RF and waterproof connectors and cable assemblies in the UK. Being on the same time zone as their customers and having complete control of their supply chain ensures fast response and delivery times and a high degree of flexibility. Short manufacturing lead-times lower customer’s inventory costs and Intelliconnect offer Kanban and JIT delivery scheduling.
Mintern continues, “We make our processes transparent to customers and if we don’t have a particular connector in stock we have the flexibility to suggest alternative solutions, or design a custom part for a specific application.”

Where a custom part is required and a production order is received pre-production samples are offered free of charge.
