Given the current state of the industry, I suspect you'll find that
any CM (contract manufacturer) will be more than happy to do small
batch work.

All CMs in Oz are HMLV (high-mix, low-volume) shops so they're used to
doing small runs anyway. To my knowledge, the only guys doing
reasonable volume of a single product (i.e. dedicated SMT line) have
captive (in-house) assembly operations.

I get all my small batch protos done at AEMS - mostly 'cos they're
geographically close and they're happy do do things the way I need.

With the demise of Solectron in Australia, AEMS, GPC and Hartec are
the big players here. There are numerous smaller players specialising
in niche assembly markets. Some examples I know of include Precision
Australia and Steel River Manufacturing.

Hope this helps,

John Haddy
