Stronger towards the future of industrial applications

6 July 2020

We know our way around in different industries, such as industrial applications. We are experts in producing various types of industrial plastic product parts, components and (semi) finished products for leading international companies. Think of connected pest control systems, smart building solutions and price tag threads. We are well-known for being able to take the lead in the entire production process; from product design by our own design studio Verhoeven to delivery ‘at your doorstep’. We are are proud that the average percentage of approved products is above 99.8%.

Our customers are market leaders, both multinationals and brand owners. They choose our partnership because of our expertise in injection moulding. But besides that, they appreciate our original design manufacturing (ODM), contract manufacturing (CM) and vertical integrated services, which exceeds the expectation of many.

 

Technological excellence

Many local suppliers, especially in emerging growth markets, are technologically not ready to adopt to change. This gives multinationals often worries about producing locally. It is therefore essential to them that their western high-tech partners are willing to produce at different local places. For us technological change has become a constant. We are used to move flexible in order to adopt to change.

Our technologies

We keep the finished product in mind, every step of the way, whether we design a travel cases for electric toothbrushes, windscreen wipers, engine components, automatic towel machines, thermometers, razor stands with an order button or something completely different. Our design studio Verhoeven understands the different design and technology requirements that any new product or packaging system needs to fulfil. We have experience with design for:
• Functionality (industrial design)
• Protection (packaging technology)
• Sustainability (environmental design)
• Cost efficiency (product engineering)
• Selling (3D design)

For production we use known manufacturing technologies like injection moulding, thermoforming, electronic manufacturing (PCBA), decorating, assembly (ESD) and packaging. With welcoming ITB we added metal injection moulding (MIM) and metal stamping to the palette. We also have our own toolshop so we can develop and manufacture our molds in-house, which guarantees efficiency and premium quality.

So, a fully-finished, complex, custom made product - with for example inbuilt electronic components, outward decorations and packaging to match - is possible thanks to our experience with wide-ranging techniques, vertical integrated services and lean production approach. The possibilities are virtually endless.

A tot Z services

We can deliver fully-finished products, with or without electronics, custom made for different industries and markets. We provide precisely what is needed, from the drawing board - at our Verhoeven design studio - to delivery. All based on the ideas and wishes of our customers. Within this vertical integrated services process, we follow these steps:
•    Assessing ideas
•    Drawing up design specifications
•    Creating a prototype
•    Mass production
•    Assembly
•    Delivery

Global presence

Our locations in the Netherlands - with a design studio and production site, including a clean room and tool shop, are excellent locations of an outstanding level. We also have production sites across three continents (Europe, Asia and Northern-America), so we are in a high position to provide local-for-local production as much as possible.

To meet the diverse requirements of customers and markets, it is not enough to attend at a local level with merely a sales office. To increase competitiveness, we invest in local production facilities. That means, among other things to recognize and capitalize on local developments and potential. We systematically promote - on a micro level - the integration of regional characteristics and cooperation between (new) local organizations and domestic environments. Now, as well as in the future, we can adapt much faster to new (local) market conditions and needs. The ability to and the speed with which our (potential) customers can - or even must - change, are critical success factors; not only with regards to technological changes. But also at strategic and organizational levels.

Quality is key

All our production sites are ISO certified, in line with the standards ISO 9001 (quality) and ISO 14001 (environment). Additionally, regarding the automotive industry, we are certified according to IATF 16949. The general policies of ISO include aspects such as quality control, safe conditions and environmental protection. We realize this through preventive measures and continual improvement of our processes, with a focus on manufacturing products that meet both the requirements of our customers and are just as consistent as we promise they will be. All without damaging people and planet. Last but not least, we apply quality methodologies such as APQP, PPAP, AQL and SPC.

The next step

Despite the challenging times we have to deal with, we are as ready as we can be. We are prepared to continue to serve our existing customers, even beyond their expectations. Ready to accept new customers. Ready to develop new products. Ready to grow to new markets. Ready to develop new technologies. Ready to take the next step. Ready for the future.
