Our Company

Bela Electronic Designs was formed in 1984. Since then our growth has been consistent and the company has developed a strong recognition in the design and manufacturing sectors.

Bela Factory Floor

Operating from our purpose built facility in Kempston on the outskirts of Bedford our facilities allow us to develop business opportunities with new and existing customers offering a wide range of processes with flexible manufacturing capacity and technical expertise.


Bela has experienced an increase in business of over 50% during the last 3 years by offering our services to an ever widening market place across more industry sectors.

To support this growth Bela invested in a Hanel Lean lift Automated Stores Retrieval System in April 2014. The system provides us with over 700 sq feet of storage space on a foot print of only 2.8m x 2.7m and 5.2m high. The system allows us to retrieve material via wireless barcode readers linked to a new MRP system which was also installed in April.

The new MRP system from FactoryMaster allows Bela to integrate material control with our customers’ requirements and allows our staff to select and process kit parts effectively, accurately and efficiently. The system comes with the added benefit of offering absolute component traceability via batch code that will benefit all of our customers.

To support our increased manufacturing throughout Bela also upgraded its PCB cleaning facility by installing a Miele IR6002 Aqueous PCB automated cleaning system and an Ascon VP800 vapour phase oven.

In 2017 and 2018 Bela continued its investment programme by purchasing two Mycronic SMD towers 6150 with a total combined capacity for the retrieval of 1300 SMD reels at a touch of a button.

We have continued with our investment in 2019 with the purchase of a Nordson Explorer 1 X-ray machine and the latest Norsdson 3D AOI.
