At a prestigious gala dinner hosted in London by industry analyst Frost & Sullivan, Robert Conway, Executive Chairman of the Blakell Europlacer Group, and Group Director Victor Lorenzo accepted the award for 2019 Company of the Year in the Global SMT Pick & Place category on behalf of Europlacer.

It is an unprecedented fifth consecutive Frost & Sullivan ‘Best Practice’ award for Europlacer. Frost & Sullivan describes Europlacer as “a company that consistently offers unique value propositions to its customers.”

Significantly, the F&S Company of the Year award recognises market leadership through a process that includes critical assessments and input from industry peers and customers, as well as Frost & Sullivan’s own skilled observers and analysts. Among the metrics that led F&S to hand the award to Europlacer was feedback from Europlacer equipment owners who reported zero equipment downtime.


The Blakell Europlacer Group comprises the Speedprint Technologies, Europlacer, and Blakell Europlacer Distribution business units. All three are active and pre-eminent in the electronic circuit board assembly sector with advanced product and service solutions for electronics manufacturers in the UK, US and globally. Speedprint Technologies is a provider of screen printing equipment used in surface mount assembly processes. Europlacer is a provider of surface mount component placement equipment. Blakell Europlacer Distribution augments the provision of screen printing and pick & place platforms in the UK with a range of associated equipment, including AOI, reflow and PCB handling.
