Application Notes


On every major bill-of-material that we receive we take the time to analyse the list of specified parts to identify key packaging opportunities; risky single-source items; items in obsolescence; and potential areas for cost saving by recommending alternative sources.

All of our key customer-facing personnel have in excess of 15 years industry experience. With the combined expertise of its senior staff and over a 100 years of combined industry service, Gateway is one of few companies that can boast such a wealth of knowledge.

Gateway people know when something is possible and they always run the extra mile to make it happen. That’s why when a customer calls, they expect us to say “Yes, we can do that”, because invariably – we can! And if on the odd occasion the solution does not exist, our technical and engineering teams will work with the customer to design one.

Gateway works closely with the technical support teams of the franchises that it represents and would be happy to organise demonstration days and seminars with customers’ engineering staff.

Using our in house expertise or our associations with specialist cable and component assembly houses we can integrate this into the rest of our solutions packages to save you time, and money.


Gateway is committed to upholding the quality standards set out in the procedures of the accreditation bodies to which it belongs, but it also prides itself in providing solutions to generic and customer-specific issues where a viable solution can be designed.

Inspection procedures at Gateway performs a rigorous and detailed inwards inspection process to all receipts made into its premises; but will offer customers enhanced inspection support to ensure that additional levels of standards are maintained, including enhanced visual inspection, testing, counting and marking services. Gateway will decant into customer-specified supply multiples; have product reeled or re-reeled; affix customer-specific labelling to product; and if required will house the parts in dedicated customer-specific locations.

Gateway can offer electronic testing services to check for product provenance and integrity as well as offering a service to replace ROHS compliant plating or terminations with SnPb .

All these services are governed by our stringent quality control and inspection procedures.

Within six months of its inception in August 2000, Gateway gained BS EN ISO9001:2000 accreditation, and has since progressed through continual improvement to the new ISO9001:2015 standard. We see it as a testament to its quality systems programme and to its business management and bespoke operating system, developed in house by its team of Quality and Systems Support staff.
