Esprit Electronics replace Ecotile ESD tiles after 17 years

Esprit provides a comprehensive range of Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) to UK and European markets, with a reputation for developing bespoke and robust solutions.

During March 2016, Esprit invested in further SMT equipment installing their fourth Ipulse platform, dual M20 machines. Along with this significant outlay it was time to replace the original Ecotile flooring which had lasted well for the past 17 years but in the context of the new equipment had started to look a little tired.

In addition to the 300 square meters at its Hamble facility a further 350 metres were installed at the Swanwick site. Later in the year a further 120 meters will be laid in the Goods In and Warehouse areas.

Lee Holloway, Technical Director says ‘’ We have always chosen the Ecotile interlocking system due to its versatility, ease of install and obviously its compliance with EN61340-5.

The finish the floor gives us is modern and there are also hidden benefits, with the ability to replace damaged tiles easily as well as protecting product or items which may inadvertently fall on the floor. The cushioning effect has saved the day in a number of cases! ‘’
