Bespoke material kitting

Bespoke material kitting

Vanilla’s component and expert kitting service offers your business the opportunity of drastically reducing your procurement costs as well as helping to slim down your supply chain. Vanilla offers pre-production kitting for prototyping, NPI and PCB assemblies of electronic and electromechanical components builds.

We supply all aspects of your bill of material (BOM) including PCB, IC’s, Connectors and Power Supply’s. All components are handled and stored within our ESD, temperature and humidity-controlled stores department and all parts are custom labelled as to your requirements.

This also helps our customers reduce their carbon footprint by consolidating multiple component orders into a single shipment. This not only helps the environment but also saves money on transportation costs.


Kitting is the process of gathering and packaging multiple components into one convenient kit, making it easier for assembly and reducing the time and effort required for procurement.

By outsourcing this task to you can reduce your company’s inventory management costs and improve production efficiency.

Our kitting services include a detailed inventory management system, ensuring the accuracy and timely delivery of the kits. By utilising our expertise in the field of kitting and product management, our clients can focus on their core business activities, confident in the knowledge that their kitting needs are in safe hands. 

Kitting | the benefits of outsourcing to a kitting company

Outsourcing your material kitting will reduce your inventory, consolidate your supplier base and streamline your production floor.

When outsourcing the kitting of electronic components and other products, you can operate more efficiently and remove the time-consuming process of sourcing and stocking materials. With staff being able to prioritise tasks that will drive output, outsourcing becomes a cost-effective solution to component kitting – bringing your business to its optimum capacity.

With access to an agile supply chain, you will gain a competitive advantage that is likely to see increased profitability. Able to respond to market demands and operating with increased speeds, your business will be able to thrive with flexibility and adaptability, benefiting workers and customers.

Benefits of using Vanilla for your kitting needs  

The team at Vanilla understands the importance of streamlining the supply chain and reducing the costs associated with it. That’s why we offer our reliable PCB kitting service to our clients.

We provide a tailored service for all of our client’s kitting needs. Our team always goes above and beyond and can handle all types of projects, from small-scale projects to mass-volume production.

Some of the main benefits of using our electronic kitting services are:

  • Electronic components, electro-mechanical and even a full product kitting service, delivered directly to your factory floor or that of your contract manufacturers
  • Robotic warehousing, automated material counters and a re-packaging service including automated optical inspection (AOI) for 100% accuracy
  • Automated component storage and handling through two 9.6m automated Lean Lifts, holding 35k components
  • Full traceability
  • Ability to upscale service to include manufactured sub-assemblies
  • One single invoice
  • Consolidated Deliveries, vendors and stocking keeping units (SKUs)
  • Reduced time to production
  • Reduced inventory
  • Reduced costs
  • Accurate stock for improved accounting and reduced line downs

Vanilla will entirely customise its processes to each client’s requirement, from packaging and labelling, to levels of attrition, even individually binning components to customer specifications. We have experience in product kitting small projects to mass volume production, as well as over 1k line bills of materials (BOM) for high-reliability applications.

Further streamlining your supply chain, our customised kitting service can also include built sub-assemblies, electro-mechanical sub-assemblies, plastics, metal-work and even labels and packaging for the final product.

Reliability and expertise

We have invested heavily in training, software and equipment to improve our electronic kitting services. All material is picked and packed in our purpose-built fully functional ESD Protected Area (EPA) using state-of-the-art electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection.

The moment your BOM is uploaded into our system, it automatically logs the required data, such as Moisture Sensitivity Levels, of all appropriate components. All relevant storage and handling information is adhered to and replicated onto any repackaged parts. Our automated reeling machines have optical inspection, checking for component orientation, and our systems matrix checks for required component wastage.

Our aftersales team will periodically check for material lifecycle, whilst providing any end-of-life (EOL) notifications as they become available. Our system can instantly report conflict minerals data and other important environmental data such as Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) or REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals).
