** surface mount experts ** If I were you I'd consider this one even if they aren't the lowest quote, cheap is fine but fair price and quality workmanship often works out to be a lot less costly in the end! Aaron who runs the SMD department is one of the best operators I have seen, they have a very nice clean room for the SMD work something I would normally only find in companies doing medical or military work. Or some of the bigger contract manufacturers who would fall over laughing if you asked them to make 50 to 100 boards for you.
There are a couple of others you could try:
South West Electronic Services
I work as a rep and visit loads of companies in QLD that do this type of work and for cheap I'd talk to Amiga, but I'd be happier to pay a little more for quality workmanship and use Young Controls Systems if I were you.
Do you have solder paste stencils (two for double sided) made yet? They can cost you a few hundred each just for setup costs. I've used PCB cart too and want to ask them if they will do a stencil for my next board. For board assembly in Sydney you might try: OnTime, only contact I have at the moment is Manji on 0407915500. They're quite small and do very small runs for us. or
have some interesting ideas about small run home brewed SMT soldering.
A couple of associates of mine have set up a company that is just what you are after. Precision Manufacturing Solutions based in Auckland, New Zealand.
