Medical sleep diagnostic equipment.

Two companies working as one

“Cogent Technology’s attention to communication and professional account management makes them feel like an extension of our operation. Few manufacturers embrace the spirit of partnership in the way Cogent Technology does. Dealing with them, you feel that they really do recognise that their fortunes depend on meeting the expectations of our customers.”

– David Baker, CEO of Embla Systems

“Despite the distance between Cogent Technology and our operations team in Denver, the service we receive is better than the on-site manufacturing facility we had. Their engineers work with ours from the outset of the design process to ensure that the product is optimised for manufacture and that specified components will not quickly become obsolete.”

Choosing the right partner

Embla Systems designs, markets, sells and supports sleep diagnostic equipment used worldwide by doctors, research facilities and hospitals to study sleep and to diagnose sleep disorders.

The company used to manufacture its sleep diagnostic equipment in house before making a strategic decision to focus on its commercial competencies, like product design. Manufacturing was not core to the business and could be outsourced to a trusted partner.

Cogent Technology has since handled all of the manufacturing and is effectively Embla Systems’ production department.

Outsourcing its manufacturing process had an immediate commercial effect for Embla Systems. Quality improved, manufacturing costs reduced and production was more responsive and flexible.

“When it comes to recommending an outsource supplier, Cogent Technology are my first choice.” – David Baker.
