With the involvement in the development, manufacture and sale of a wide range of high technology products, our client manufactures lasers and analytical spectrometers, gas detection and monitoring products.
Since 2012, Cogent Technology has been building a variety of PCB products for their client using their Series Production service. Their Purchasing Manager says “we were introduced to Cogent Technology through a mutual business associate who had been using Cogent for years. The indications from our own audit that the commendations for quality and delivery performance we were given appeared to be well founded, and indeed, having now traded with Cogent ourselves since 2012 the competencies have been proven.
For nearly 100 years, our client has manufactured cutting-edge, highly engineered components and systems that facilitate motion and the controlled flow of liquids and gasses to a global market resulting in sales in excess of $13 billion and comprising of clients in the Aerospace, Climate Control, Electromechanical, Filtration, Fluid & Gas Handling, Hydraulics, Pneumatics, Process Control and Sealing and Shielding industries.
Their Purchasing Manager explained “we have refined the way we challenge our suppliers, year-on-year evaluating performance and more importantly, seeing how together we are going to find new competitive advantage and Cogent always brings something new to the table. Cogent Technology’s drive for continuous improvement in processes and technology and their focus on quality, ensures they are able to reinforce their ethos of “Excellence in Manufacture”, this is why we are happy to say they are still our chosen CEM partner after 20 years.”
Our client developed a patented procedure that used micro-fluidic technology in the form of a disposable cassette to capture and harvest circulating tumor cells from blood, which assists in detecting and/or identify which types of cancer patients may have, but also provides the ability to assess a patient’s ongoing condition measuring the responsiveness of varying cancer treatments.
Fundamental prerequisites for building their product included the capability of manufacturing products to ISO 13485 standards, a focus on quality and traceability, on-time delivery and flexibility, however, our client also required a partner that had a team sufficiently experienced to offer design for manufacture advice following the initial completion of the new product build.
Head of Manufacturing and Regulatory says, “We are very pleased with the quality and consistency of the finished product as produced by Cogent. They demonstrate a consistently high level of skill, commitment and importantly flexibility in getting the product to our customer base. Furthermore, their design input has made a significant contribution to the overall product manufacturability and quality.”
