Winslow Adaptics was founded in 1977 by David Winslow. The company relocated from the South East of England to Wales in 1982 and moved to its present location in the Brecon Beacons in 1993. By the mid 1980s, Winslow Adaptics was the largest exporter of stamped & formed contact IC sockets. In 1982 it acquired Jermyn Manufacturing and today, continues to manufacture from original drawings and tooling, some of which date back to 1965. The company continued to grow its portfolio of products with the addition of the ‘Adapter program’ in the early nineties, when Marconi approached it for a solution to an obsolete PGA device, which they could replace with a functionally identical PLCC.
Today, our ISO 9001:2015 registered manufacturing facility provides stringent controls for the assembly and test of products with IPC certified technicians processing electronic assemblies. Winslow Adaptics offers a complete turnkey or partial solution across the design and manufacturing disciplines and is committed to the growth of its services and manufacturing processes for the future.
Winslow began manufacturing connectors in the mid-1970s when we re-created an obsolete TO Socket for Flight Rediffusion, Crawley. This quickly developed to a range of stamped & formed contact I.C. sockets with a market share that required manufacturing rates of 70 pins per second followed by the development of a screw machined pin socket manufacturing line. We have a broad-line of industry standard Interconnect, including legacy lines, very often available from stock:
