Signal was created as an Original Design Manufacturer in the electronics field. Initially, the focus was on research and production within the textile industry, but throughout the years activity has expanded in many other fields.
The need to provide a better service to its Far Eastern customers led Signal to opening a new production site in Suzhou, China. Signal China produces and provides its products to Asian clients and aids its Italian counterpart in the acquisition of electronics from China, and in the production of intermediate products to be completed in Italy for European customers. Moreover, it has its own research department, that works with Signal Italy in the development of new hardware and software.
With its 25th anniversary, Signal celebrates its highest ever annual turnover, as well as the hiring of 20 employees.
A milestone is also reached: 350 man-years of experience in electronic research and development.
Johnson Matthey is a German electronics company, known for producing all parts in-house starting from raw material. Signal acquires the distribution rights for their piezoelectric actuators, while also being an official distributor for CSS AB.
Signal employs around 50 people, of which 15 are permanently in China. Six engineers work in hardware design, while 8 develop software, as well as doing quality control. In the Chinese plant 2 engineers collaborate with Italian R&D to help Asian clients directly.
Thanks to a highly qualified staff and frequent collaborations with research institutes and universities, the design of new engineering solutions is at the core of Signal, and its key quality for future growth.
Signal believes that excellence is the highest priority, and for that, methodologies such as M.T.B.F., F.M.E.A. and H.A.L.T. are routinely utilized for obtain products with extremely high standards of quality in a short development time.
