FlexOne announces expansion of electronics and plastics manufacturing services
Sep 22, 2006
FlexOne has announced today the expansion of its capabilities to include comprehensive design and manufacturing solutions that consolidate and expedite all phases of the electronics production process. FlexOne's revolutionary suite of 'One-stop-shop' manufacturing services will allow small and medium-sized companies access to rapid, fully-inclusive production services that were previously available only to billion dollar corporations.
As a pioneering process engineer of surface mount technology and former Flextronics Executive, FlexOne's CEO Shay Ahmed stresses the value of the 'One-Stop-Shop' manufacturing model, "We are excited to be offering such a comprehensive suite of services to medium and smaller-sized companies. Our vision has always been to be able to help our clients navigate every obstacle on the path from prototype to finished product. With expanded 'one-stop shop' services, we are now able to provide clients a fully integrated manufacturing partner; from full electronic and mechanical product design, parts procurement, assembly and test, to the packaging and shipping of the final product, everything can be done in house by FlexOne, and fast."
FlexOne's "One-stop-shop" model will provide manufacturers and their design engineers with one point of contact to handle all aspects of the design, parts procurement, prototyping, manufacturing and distribution of their products. Certified to ISO, medical and military production standards, the 'One-stop shop' will complement the company's existing PCB assembly and full box build capabilities. FlexOne's new services will target companies with products that require high reliability, excessively fast turnarounds on moderate to low-production runs. Most notably, the company has added a complete plastics capability that includes mechanical design, mold building and plastic injection molding.
"FlexOne leverages a marriage of technical capabilities, speed and flexibility that is extremely uncommon in this industry. The company's capability to offer full design and build services for both plastic and electronics, benefits the OEM looking to one source for all its needs. FlexOne provides convenience, speed to market and single source of accountability often lacking when going overseas," says Ahmed. "The result is a uniquely appealing manufacturing alternative for small and medium-sized business."
