PCB manufacturing plays an important role in vehicle design, manufacturing, and repair. Printed circuit boards are used throughout modern vehicles to power a variety of essential components drivers use every day, including:
- Engine control
- Anti-lock brakes
- Airbag sensors
- Power relay
- LED light setups
- Electric mirrors
- Transmission sensors
- Digital display
With the COVID-19 pandemic closing off many international avenues for PCB distribution, Canadian car companies are at a loss. Shortages in PCB slow automotive manufacturing and repair, causing delays in auto manufacturing. The solution? Local Canadian circuits made right here at home.
MIS Electronics is a Canadian PCB company with a focus on manufacturing, sales, and distribution. From start to finish, you can count on us to get your PCB product from point A to point B in perfect shape.
Although we’ve been in the PCB business for more than 22-years, the need for local PCB has recently excelled due to the rapidly changing market. Here, we’ll talk about the importance of local PCB manufacturing.
Manufacturers in Canada Cause Less Waiting and Less Worrying
One of the major advantages of local high-quality PCB fabrication is reduced wait times for car manufacturers and dealers. Previously, much of the PCB industry was dominated by international manufacturing.
In fact, in 2017 it was reported that more than half the world’s PCB was manufactured in China, with Taiwan and India alternative leaders in production. In 2019 when the pandemic emerged, international shipping began experiencing problems, slowing delivery to North American businesses.
Buying from companies here in Canada means:
- Shorter wait times
- Cheaper shipping rates
- No import fees
At MIS Electronics, we offer cost-controlled shipping, with customizable delivery options. You can count on us for on-time delivery, fast prototyping, and protective packaging with every shipment.
Each of our circuit boards is shipped with protective multi-layer packaging including:
- Pink poly bubble wrap
- A desiccant pouch
- Sealed moisture barrier bag
- Anti-vibration padding
Packaging is vacuum-sealed and delivered along with a bill of materials, fabrication drawing and notes, test specifications, and more.
For automotive industry leaders waiting for bulk PCB service or custom PCB assembly, local manufacturers and fabrication mean a shorter lead time and quick turnaround.
Safer PCB Design and Manufacturing
Knowing where your custom PCB is manufactured means knowing whether it passes Canadian standards for safety and quality. In the automotive industry, knowing your printed circuit boards are of the best quality is critical as they control everything from airbags to brakes and beyond.
At MIS Electronics, our PCBs are certified for sale in North America, and we believe in full transparency with our customers. Our certification includes:
- Controlled Goods Program
- ALPHA Lead-Free Process Capability Validation
- Orion Registrar Quality Standard Compliance
- IPC Membership
- Surface Mount Technology Association Membership
When you know what’s in PCB, you know what’s going into the vehicles you manufacture or maintain. This means a safer environment for your technicians and a safer product for your customers.
Wider Selection of PCB Products and Customization
Even in automotive, no two products are the same. Each vehicle has a unique set of requirements and special features. This means PCB can’t always be bulk ordered and may require some tweaking between designs and manufacturing.
Ordering from a local PCB manufacturer offers a greater level of customization. Whether you want to incorporate added features or evolve current ones, MIS Electronics can help you. We’ll create prototypes for new PCB designs, assemble and manufacture those designs, and test them for sale on the market.
MIS Electronics works closely with our customers to turn technology dreams into a profitable reality. Your success means our continued success, and it’s important to us that our partners in the automotive industry have everything you need to achieve that success.

Intellectual Property Protection and Secure Sales
For automotive brands with patented or protected technology, keeping your intellectual property safe is important. When you outsource printed circuit board manufacturing to an international supplier, you run the risk of information theft. Even with the most well-established overseas PCB producers, the further you order your technology from, the more hands it passes through before reaching your shop.
Working within the Canadian PCB industry, North American automotive companies can rest assured your secrets are safe with MIS Electronics. Following strict information compliance regulations and personally integrated manufacturing protocols, we take great care with client information from start to finish.
You also know exactly where your money is going when you purchase through a Canadian PCB manufacturer. Shopping locally bolsters the Canadian economy, supporting a sustainable business industry for a profitable tomorrow.
Contact Communication With no Language Barriers
For North American automobile manufacturers, knowing you have direct contact with your PCB supplier is key. Working with a Canadian PCB manufacturer, you know that we’re in the same, or similar time zones, speak English or French, and are available to answer questions when you need them answered.
MIS Electronics works with customers across North America, supplying top-quality PCB across several industries. We service the automobile industry, as well as:
- Audio Visual
