1. ESTABLISHED PROVIDER
BVM are systems integrator specialising in providing embedded computing solutions – whether you need something that’s standard or customised to your own bespoke needs.
We’ve been operating from our Southampton base for over 30 years now – from our early beginnings as a provider of VMEbus (Versa Module Eurocard) solutions through to modern day embedded industrial PC solutions in variety of formats and platforms.
Our 30+ years has seen us build long standing partnerships with global OEM’s which in turn has generated a customer base which has trusted in us providing reliable products & services to make what they do the very best in their field. Quite often, we’re the manufacturer behind the solutions you’ll know and use on an everyday basis – from services in & around using public transportation through to the use of energy in your home.
2. TECHNICAL EXPERTISE AND EXPERIENCE
BVM’s design & manufacturing team possess the requisite technical design and manufacturing experience to design, develop and build your product. The stability and internal working relationships within our design team has been one of the keys to our successes in helping customers around the efficient development of their products over our years.
Our team consists of a cross mix of experiences – electrical & electronics engineering, mechanical design, production engineering and good commercial acumen. But ultimately, we’re all enthusiasts around any kind of industrial PC solution that we’re capable of providing – hopefully solutions that we can apply in the provision for what you need.
However, it’s our relevant industry experience that’s vital, particularly for those products that require specific domain knowledge such as defense, aerospace, communications, or medical. Many of these products may have to meet stringent performance standards in harsh environments or they may have onerous regulatory or critical safety requirements – which is where BVM’s team collective experience & working knowledge is highly beneficial.
Our electronic design and manufacturing team’s assembly and test experience is essential to help you avoid quality issues, inflated costs, and unanticipated schedule delays during the final introduction to the production manufacturing process.
3. MANUFACTURING MINDSET
Our embedded system integration and bespoke manufacturing services provide customers with the facility to have their products built & tested to their specific standards.
Feedback during the design phase from our team members to you in the sourcing, pre-manufacturing and test engineering processes reduces your risk of unanticipated issues and increases the likelihood of a seamless design transfer to manufacturing.
Because the BOM (“Bill-of-Material”) cost is the significant portion of the total product cost, our capabilities as an electronic design and manufacturing provider can effectively reduce these costs and should be an important factor for you in selecting BVM as your partner of choice.
BVM have tried and tested relationships with longstanding partners within our supply chain, purchasing significant quantities of components and materials on a monthly basis providing for flexibilities around preferred pricing.
Furthermore, BVM have financial credit facilities with our providers that enable us to order parts and materials on the best possible terms.
4. WE MAKE SURE YOUR PRODUCT CAN ACTUALLY BE MANUFACTURED
A successful product not only requires a competent functional design,
it also needs to be designed for manufacture
BVM’s ‘Design to Order’ services are there to take your ideas from concept to initial design, through to prototyping – culminating in a manufacturable product.
Whether we’re designing a bespoke printed circuit board or a complete embedded system PC assembly, our Design to Order processes encompass us producing prototypes or “proof of concepts” (PoC) – working units to verify your application software’s functionality, mechanical, electrical and thermal characteristics – and of course, aesthetics – the all-round look & feel of your product. And, most importantly, that it adheres to budget.
Our offices and production facilities, based in the heart of the glorious Hampshire countryside, just outside Bishops Waltham – central to Southampton, Portsmouth and Winchester in the United Kingdom.
We are one hour from London Heathrow (LHR) airport – and 1.5 hours from London Gatwick (LGW) airport. We have fantastic access to major road networks local to our offices, including the M3, M4 and M25.
We moved to the Bishop Waltham facility in 2016 due to the expansion of our technical, commercial and production operations and it serves as our central point for application development, manufacturing & assembly, test and our logistical centre for storage and shipping of product – all completed to our processes in accreditation to ISO-9001-2015
