Consilia, a Brno-based company, has built its business model in the printed circuit board sector on the fact that it does not make its own products, but offers "brains". Designers, layout engineers, coders or software engineers capable of designing a PCB, drawing a schematic, writing bespoke software or producing an entire pre-series part including a prototype. And when the customer requires it, its experts spend their days on-site at the company to get the project up and running.
"Our goal is not to do our own development, we do everything to support our customers. That's why we are used to situations where we 'go into the field' for a fortnight or three weeks. We load up the laptops, learn the necessary tools and are ready to start supporting the customer directly in their companies. We are relatively small, up to twenty people, but we are able to work on complex projects from A to Z. We have the whole design development covered, from concept to drawing schematics, layout, prototype boards, we can fit PCBs or design the basic mechanics of a product. We have experts who are able to write software or firmware. For how small we are, we can do a lot. Our big advantage over others is our extreme flexibility. We work with a number of freelancers, so when a customer comes to us saying they need a team to work for them for two years non-stop. We are able to put it all together and start working within a month or two," says Petr Horák, who has been working in PCB design for 10 years, and for the fifth year directly at Consilia as a Senior PCB Design Engineer.
