New Website

February 2009: After 20 years of Beta LAYOUT and 15 years of PCB POOL® our web site is getting a makeover. This includes a complete overhaul of the Customer Interface. But not only has the visual appearance of the website changed; some functionalities have been extended and improved, while the shopping basket system has been simplified even further. So for example stencils and printed circuit boards can now be bought from the same "one-stop-shop". The jewel in the crown of the new Shopping-basket system is a price matrix for the comparison of the selected printed circuit board specification with further options (eg: leadtime/quantity), just like price comparison sites for airline tickets which we are all familiar with today.
