PEI-Genesis Expands UK Facility

SOUTHAMPTON, U.K. — In response to growing demand from the defense sector, franchised connector-assembly specialist PEI-Genesis has significantly expanded the MIL-DTL-38999 production capability at its 65,000 ft2 European assembly facility in Southampton. The company is QPL listed by the US Department of Defense for assembling the MIL-DTL-38999 Series I, II and III military circular connectors manufactured by Amphenol. PEI-Genesis also assembles Amphenol MIL-DTL-38999 connectors at its 150,000 ft2 South Bend Indiana USA facility.

Some of the processes involved in assembling these connectors differ from those required for most other connector types, so PEI-Genesis made the decision to build two new assembly lines dedicated to producing fully qualified MIL-DTL-38999 connectors and related products, all of which are offered with PEI’s standard 48-hour assembly service.

“We were able to set up the new assembly lines very rapidly because we had already established a supply-chain partnership with Amphenol,” commented an operations manager at the Southampton facility. “This involves very close collaboration between the two organizations and provides a framework for open communication between personnel at every level.”
