JVES company profile

21 March 2012 News

Joint Ventures Electronic Services (JVES) is a full turnkey electronics service provider with eight years of experience in the South African marketplace. The company employs roughly 20 personnel in a Wynberg factory occupying over 1000 m² of floor area.

In order to bring a product from concept to market in the most cost effective way and in the shortest possible time, JVES offers a full complement of services, including an R&D department, automated SMD assembly, manual leaded components assembly, mechanical department, graphics department with label production equipment, automatic wire cutting and stripping, and test facilities.

The company counts organisations such as Clearline Protection Systems, Poynting Antennas, Maxlight, Devon Auto Spares and Current Automation amongst its client base. In addition to the products that it manufacturers for these, and other, customers, it also has a host of products which are branded under its own name and marketed directly or via third parties. These include: the LittleBigB, a comprehensive battery monitor; solar street light, an advanced solar charger and LED driver; and the parking guidance system, a full solution parking management system.

JVES believes that its in-house expertise stands it in good stead when compared to competitors, in that it has in-depth knowledge of all its products and engineering skills to quickly answer any production problem and further develop, modify and expand on any of its products. The company’s activities range from the definition of the products through development and validation, until the production phase.

The company’s particular capabilities make it well suited for customers who are outside the electronics industry, customers who are in the electronics field but do not have an in-house engineering department, as well as those which have engineering facilities but need to relieve work load.

Once JVES is presented with a product idea or need, it assesses both its technical and market viability, and whether it falls into the company’s scope of activity. JVES’s business model ensures that it has an equity stake in each product it manufactures, an arrangement that suits both the company and its customers, as it guarantees ongoing, acute interest in the product.

As a result of this, JVES is highly incentivised to maximise product features during development and make sure it meets and exceeds all expectations, as well as to minimise the product cost with added engineering effort to make it as competitive as possible. As often happens, product specifications change during development and even during production. JVES, due to its interest in the product, supports the product and performs all future upgrades, in most cases at no cost.
