New Product Introduction

New Product Introduction is the pulse of our business. The process that we follow is to go from concept to part is:

  1. Request For Quote.  At this time Budgetary, Volumes and Timeline expectations are determined.
  2. Design Approval. After the RFQ has been established, we provide dimensioned  drawings with tolerances for customer approval. 
  3. Color Development and Approval. This may take place concurrently, however it is important to have the color established for timeline lead times.
  4.  Pattern Building: After prints have been approved typical lead times for patterns range 1 – 4 weeks.
  5. Tool Building: It is important to understand production tooling may take up to an additional 3 weeks of more to create a full set of tools needed for volume applications.
  6. First Article of Approval: After the initial tool is built we send out first articles of approval for fit and function.
  7. Production: Average production lead times are 2 weeks. Warehousing is an option for quicker lead times.
