S & Q Europe BV has more than 30 years of experience in the pcb world.
On the first of October,1985, Jeroen Charmant started together with Klingelnberg-Klauss BV a testcentre. He successfully developed this testing facility for electrical testing and CNC drilling / routing services in the years that followed.
An expansion with AOI from Visionetics for bareboards followed in a later stage. During this time the name of the company changed to Klingelberg-Klauss Electronics BV (KKE).
Providing services in Slovakia
In 1995 we started to provide services in Slovakia to a.o. ZVT Print s.r.o.. This was followed by a rapid build-up of the company. At the moment it has become a reliable and well-equipped west European pcb producer.
From 1994 to 2004, KKE had a test centre in Berlin.
Between 2000 and 2005, KKE was part of the Mania Group.
The start of S&Q
Due to the rapid changes in the market, we started expanding the service centre in the Netherlands in 2013 and KKE BV, Speed & Quality Prototypes BV and Wayout Printservice BV. were merged. This was the start of S & Q Europe BV.
As of December 1st, 2017, we have taken over the model shop from Q.P.I Group BV.
In 2019 we moved the sales force to the new building next door.
In June 2021 the assembly of PCBs were moved to our new climate controlled assembly room.
In order to keep delivering the best service, we continue to invest.
