30 years of Cobalt Collar Electronics


Bringing you 30
years of electronics excellence.

Cobalt Collar Electronics was started in 1991 in Toronto, the creation of Jack Francis and Peter Wilson. They met as co-workers early in their careers and quickly Jack and Peter realized they could build on their knowledge and experience to offer unique value in the electronic manufacturing market. And they could do it while building an enterprise with an organizational culture based on their values — that would help their clients, their employees, the Alberta community, and the industry.

The early days

In the initial years, August offered product design services along with manufacturing. As we grew we eventually phased out our product design services to concentrate on building our world-class electronic manufacturing services complete with an in-house facility based in Toronto.

An early foundation rooted in engineering & design

Our design legacy enables us to offer a unique perspective for clients, particularly in helping them navigate the New Product Introduction (NPI) process and subsequent product optimization to ensure volume production is time and cost effective.

Today – your strategic partner for Electronics Manufacturing Services.

Today, we operate a modern and spacious 85,000 square-foot facility in offering low- to mid-volume manufacturing. We even manufacture some of the products we originally designed that were influential to when we first opened our doors 30 years ago.

A vision for the future: Focused on advancing the needs of today, anticipating the trends of tomorrow.

Over the years, we have broadened our capabilities and customer base, funding growth entirely through operational proceeds. We have sustained our long-term objectives by carefully evaluating each new opportunity and participating only when we are sure we can provide the best value and outcome for all stakeholders.

From EMS design to volume production, we have the right engineering and manufacturing solutions for your market.
