We are responsive and reliable, and by having design and manufacturing within a shared environment, we are proactive.
We can make changes quickly and adapt as per our customer’s fluctuating forecast demands, or product specification alterations.
We come together with a successful product for production. Together we make it.
Our focus is you and your product.
We start by developing a solid understanding of you, our customer, and your needs.
Around this, we configure a multi-skilled team of professionals. This team will stay with you for years. They will care for your product, and carry it forward through the development and manufacturing processes. They will discuss product improvement and cost reduction ideas. They will take pride in your product.
The bulk of Ryder’s turnover is managed by such single-customer cross-functional teams. Start-ups and smaller customers benefit from the economies of scale resulting from having a single team look after several of them.
Peace of mind: each plant is individually certified to all the necessary ISO standards – by the respected German TÜV.
Maximise your effectiveness, minimise your cost.
The key is to operate two facilities 5 hours apart, in strongly contrasting locations, all under the holding company in sophisticated Hong Kong.
Product development and early-stage production is run in world-class Shenzhen, centre of engineering skills and innovation, heart of the most diverse and cost effective supply chain network in the world. Here we have our Coastal plant with some 1,200 people, heavy in engineers and program management, with higher English skills.
Once the manufacturing process stabilises and hits its stride, we seamlessly transfer it to our Inland plant. Here our customers benefit from significant competitive cost advantages and a larger regional labour pool, meaning scalability and reliable on-time delivery.
Speed and accuracy have been the big benefits of Ryder’s progressive Vertical Integration.
Cross-functional issues can be addressed by walking 30 seconds to appropriate person and discussed in an open and trusting environment.
Each Ryder plant, Inland and Coastal, runs the manufacturing processes necessary to your product.
New processes are added as customer needs arise. For example, our latest investment in our colour centre allows us to mix any colour tone our customer requires, and our calibrated spectrophotometer ensures that it stays in sync with the customer and consistent between batches. We continuously evolve to meet our customers’ growing needs.
Totaling 46,000 sq.m. (500,000 sq.ft.) of factory floor space, our coastal and inland plants provide a robust solution to our customers’ manufacturing needs.
Each plant has the full range of equipment required for its processes. They are tied together by the latest Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP system, a sophisticated Materials Planning and Manufacturing Control solution, running on rugged and well backed-up Dell professional hardware. Diesel-electric generators for no-stop operations.
The equipment used for our major processes includes:
8 SMT lines; through-hole on demand.
111 Plastic Injection machines
80 assembly lines
It is in the labour-intensive processes that the choice of Inland site really pays off.
Typically, when OEM customers engage with Ryder, they are looking for more than standard PCBA.
Quality is integral to all good companies’ way of thinking, planning and executing, and quality is integral to Ryder people’s sense of who they are.
Quality in an EMS means more than low defect rates; it means smooth development and manufacturing processes, compliance with an extensive set of ISO standards, attentiveness to the customer, and corporate integrity.
Within this framework, inspection is a key tool, demanding that the EMS invest in a broad range of expensive test equipment.
• Automatic Solder Paste Inspection
• Automatic Optical Inspection
• X-Ray Inspection
• In-Circuit Testers
• Audio precision testers
• Spectrum Analyzers
• Network Analyzers
• Digital Signal Generators
• RF Tuning Chambers
Plastics, cabinet and ROHS testing
• Optical Projector (dimension checking, tooling)
• Vision Measuring System (OGP SmartScope Flash CNC system CNC 300)
• Spectrophotometer (colour compliance)
• X-ray fluorescence spectrometer (ROHS compliance)
Finished product testing: DVT + Production
• ESD Test System
• Vibration Testers
• Drop test
• Pull tester (Instron)
• Thermal Cycle Chambers
• Over 100 PC-based test stations and associated jigs for production product testing
This is one of the most important requirements for EMS providers, for their OEM customers, especially in the high-reliability markets of automotive and medical.
Ryder is certified to ISO 13845, and regularly re-audited rigorously
At Ryder we barcode every product from the beginning of the production lifecycle, when taking receipt of the raw PCB, right the way through to packaging and distribution. All products are serialised and traceable, even every single component part that we place onto the bare PCB board is married into the PCBA during our manufacturing process.
This provides our OEM customer with the reassurance and guarantees that we can track and trace in a world where data matters.
At Ryder, we empower transparent data collection, utilising knowledge to make intelligent decisions to continuously improve our processes and efficiency. This allows us to maintain our competitive position in a market where speed counts.
