As of March 29, 2019 the United Kingdom will no longer be part of the European Union. Fineline QPIs supplier portfolio includes among other printed circuit board manufactures in the United Kingdom.
In preparation of the Brexit Fineline QPI has taken measures to limit the impact. Fineline QPI has experience with imports of materials from countries outside the European Union and uses this experience for a smooth transition. Also Fineline QPI has the processes in place to handle these imports.
Fineline QPI has in close cooperation with its manufactures investigated the supply chains for certain raw materials used in the manufacturing processes. The Brexit will have NO impact on the product composition and/or manufacturing processes for products delivered by Fineline QPI. In case of raw material import by the manufacturer Fineline QPI is working in close cooperation with his partners to reduce impact (and preferable eliminate the effect totally) of these trans-border transports.
When appropriate the quotations of Fineline will include the anticipated additional lead-time for both raw-materials as well as dispatch times for transport from/to the United Kingdom.
In case of questions please do contact your contact person within Fineline QPI.

Fineline QPI Organization
Fineline QPI moved to a new location, Panovenweg 12, 5708 HR Helmond. As from that moment QPI is named Fineline QPI BV.
Why does QPI move: in recent years the market and the demands from the market have changed. QPI has also become part of Fineline Global. As a result, the needs have changed and we also need less space. The new building therefore fits much better with the Fineline QPI 2018 organisation.
We will keep you informed of the developments concerning the move.
Moving means a lot of work, the IT systems are an important part. The relocation will be a physically of the workstations. But at his moment we will also go to mailaddresses @ fineline-global.com instead of @qpigroup.com. Of course it remains possible to use the old addresses.
That is also the reason that we went to use of the mail addresses email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org when introducing Sales Force.
