Trackwise is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2009.  Having been founded in May 1989 as Trackwise Designs Ltd, a PCB design bureau, Trackwise soon moved into PCB manufacture. In 1986 we were asked to manufacture a very large PCB, one of the early GSM900 base station antennas.

Having survived the acquisition of the company by Philip Johnston in 2000 and the near-collapse of the TMT sector in 2001, Trackwise have gone from strength to strength, being awarded the Queen’s Award for Export in 2005, acquiring its main UK competitor in 2006 to become the principal UK supplier of antenna and PTFE PCBs.

The story of Trackwise over 20 years could not have taken place without the dedication of a large number of employees – 6 of whom have now been with Trackwise for more than 10 years.  Between the current employees of Trackwise, we have more than 120years of experience of manufacturing PTFE PCBs.
