There is an incorrect perception within the electronics industry in Australia and New Zealand about outsourcing Prototype PCBs to overseas. There seems to be a general un-spoken rule that prototyping costs are insignificant and sourcing PCBs from offshore takes too long and therefore not worthwhile.

In reality, for most companies, prototyping costs are financially significant enough to demand extra attention. However, the turn-around time can become an issue. This is where you will benefit from having Sourceman as part of your team.

Through our invaluable network of reliable offshore manufacturers and our extensive experience in this field, we will not only provide you with significant cost savings on prototype PCBs, but we will also insure to meet all your desirable turn-around times. More often than not, we achieve turn-around times that are faster than that of local manufacturers.

We bring about significant savings in your prototyping costs, removing the financial barriers to your company's R&D efforts . Due to very large sums of money that local companies charge for PCB prototyping services (specially for 4+ layer PCBs), outsourcing through Sourceman can save you tens of thousands of dollars.

Prototype PCBs purchased through Sourceman are sourced from the largest prototype PCB manufacturers in China that specialise in producing small volume PCBs, over a short period of time, with a large variety of designs per month. (up-to 4000 designs/month).

All prototype shipments are done using DHL/FedEx/UPS express shipment services to achieve the fastest and most reliable delivery.
