Stadium Group, a leading supplier of wireless solutions, power supplies and electronics assemblies, has integrated its global power business, comprising the Stadium Power and Stontronics brands.

The single trading entity Stadium Stontronics will give customers access to a wider product range in standard, custom and semi-custom power supplies with an enhanced portfolio up to 10kW, dedicated sales and service provided from the Regional Fulfilment Centres (RFCs) in Reading, UK and Hong Kong, and engineering expertise provided through the Regional Design Centres (RDCs) in Norwich and Shanghai.

Enhanced services including kitting, labelling, PCB assembly and turnkey manufacturing will be provided from the Stadium Group sites in the UK and Asia.

Products from the integrated business are now available through the former Stontronics distribution network, which includes Electrocomponents (RS, Allied), Element 14 (Farnell, Newark, CPC) and Rapid Electronics.

Stadium is an AIM listed British company with more than 100 years of UK design and manufacturing heritage, and today delivers integrated electronic technologies to OEMs worldwide. Power is a leading growth area for the business and has been subject to key investment in recent years with the opening of a dedicated R&D facility in Norwich in 2014, the bolt-on acquisition of Stontronics in August 2015 and the upgrade of the power supply manufacturing capability in Hartlepool, which complements the wholly owned facility in China.

Martin Brabham, managing director for Stadium’s global power business, commented: “The integration of the power business completes the next stage in our growth plan and supports the wider integrated technology model of the group where benefits are already being realised. Several Stadium Stontronics customers are now accessing Stadium’s design capabilities in wireless M2M communication and HMI and we expect this approach to continue to deliver strong benefits including shared knowledge, access to niche technology, economies of scale and synergies in design, manufacturing and fulfilment.”
