About Pillarhouse International

Founded in 1978 by current Chairman Alex Ciniglio, Pillarhouse International pioneered the design and manufacture of specialist equipment for the coil winding and associated industries.

Pillarhouse International produced its first production soldering system in 1984, and with continued growth throughout the 1980’s, used this technology to develop the world’s first selective soldering machine in 1994.

Our philosophy is to produce high engineering standard products with a focus on innovation and cutting-edge development. This practice has led to Pillarhouse International holding several important patents that have been key to our continued success over many years, and growing into a global company with sales and service facilities in over 50 countries.

Pillarhouse International has its Design & Manufacturing headquarters in Chelmsford – UK; with Sales & Service Support facilities in Suzhou – China; Chicago – USA; and Guadalajara – Mexico. For contact details of each of these locations, please visit Contact us – Pillarhouse International


Pillarhouse International continues to be a world leader in the selective soldering industry, dedicated to the ongoing development of pioneering technologies, such as our patented 1.5mm Micro Nozzle, to reflect and match the needs of an everchanging manufacturing marketplace.

We offer a wide range of selective soldering machines, covering the complexity of global demand for production across electronics, aerospace and PCB contract manufacturing. By combining engineering experience, software development and innovation, we provide cost-effective and reliable selective soldering equipment capable of fluxing, pre-heating, soldering and nitrogen generation.

Design Philosophy

Key to the Pillarhouse International design philosophy is that no one machine can meet the strict production demands of all market sectors. Whether it be a handload batch machine or fully integrated automatic production line, the process cannot be compromised. All our machines offer the ability to monitor and control every function that can affect the production process. Also, inherent to our principle, is that all machines should have the capability to accept upgradeable options/enhancements throughout their production life.
