Reed Releases Top 20 List of European-owned EMS Providers


Reading time ( words)

The German Zollner Group remained the leading European EMS provider based on global revenues with estimated sales of €1.25 billion in 2017, according to the Reed Electronics Research. Meanwhile, despite lower sales from its European operations, primarily in Germany, Asteelflash remained second with the Hungarian company Videoton, third.

The top five all reported revenues over Euro 500 million in 2017 with the Dutch company Neways becoming the sixth European company to achieve this in 2018.

Acquisitions continue to have an impact on the ranking. The most notable in 2018 was the acquisition of of Swiss company CCS Holdings by GPV. As a result, the Danish company has moved into the Top 10 with pro-forma revenues in 2017 of €344 million.

Kitron. Elemaster, TT Electronics and HANZA have also completed targeted acquisitions in 2018/2019 and it is expected that further acquisitions will take place over the next two to three years as companies look to strengthen their operations in both Europe and globally.

Thriving Through Greater EMS Collaboration

08/23/2022 | Chris Peters, USPAE
Events of the past two years have clearly demonstrated the value of strong trading relationships. When materials become constrained, as in the recent microchip shortage or any of the pandemic-driven supply chain snafus, the companies that have those materials have a choice to make. Which customers will be put at the front of the line, and which will be placed at the rear? Too often, company executives assume that since they are a large buyer, they automatically will be prioritized when supplies are constrained. Research has shown that this is not always the case, and that assumption can leave a company in a weakened position.
