MacroFab Announcement – 44% Price Reduction On Production PCBs

By Parker Dillmann  |  May 1, 2019

Good News – we are reducing prices on PCBs for production orders by an average of 44%. This change is effective immediately on


Reduced PCB pricing is permanent and has already taken effect for all new orders going forward as of May 1 at 1 am CST.

Why is MacroFab lowering prices?

We are focused on giving you the best possible way to order PCB assemblies at any volume and that means continually lowering our prices as we gain negotiating power with our suppliers. You can expect to see more price reductions from us this year.

Are there unit volumes where I am most likely to see reductions? Will every PCB quote see a 44% reduction?

This pricing change affects all production orders. You will see meaningful price reductions for orders of 100+ units and most significant savings for 1,000+ units. When we applied this new pricing model to thousands of prior orders we saw an average of 44% savings. Generally, we observed a PCB price reduction of 20% for lower volume orders and as much as 80% for high volume orders.

Will this lower PCB pricing affect my lead times?

It depends. You will be able to select the right balance between the best price and best lead time when you place your order, so you’re always in control.

Does this change mean my entire order will be 44% less expensive?

No, this change applies specifically to PCB pricing. There will be additional price reductions for components that we plan to announce as we negotiate high volume discounts.

Are there other ways to get a lower price for my order?

Yes, if your volume is high enough. Our goal is to always provide the best possible price online, but for complex or high-volume orders our sales team can get significant price reductions from the price you see online. These reductions typically follow one of two patterns:

  • High volume component sourcing allows us to work with our distributors to negotiate deep discounts.
  • Fixed price, long term manufacturing agreements allow us to provide a demand forecast to the supply chain, which results in discounts which we pass on to our customers.
