What is New Product Introduction (NPI)?
We make complex sheet metal fabrication projects simple for our partners. That starts with our unique New Product Introduction (NPI) service. New Product Introduction is the process of taking a product from concept, design or prototype, through various structured phases to full scale manufacturing. It means understanding and developing a customer’s product in a controlled and structured environment prior to serial production.
There are numerous benefits to NPI, including reduced development costs through improved design, reduced manufacturing risk, and quicker time to market.
Putting your product through our NPI process will allow you to see and understand all the steps needed to take it from prototype stage to serial manufacture. We can review and advise on the functionality of the product against design and flag any specifications which might prove unachievable or financially restrictive.
Taking your product through NPI allows for a controlled release into scaled-up manufacture, and enables our team to understand your labour and space requirements and generate accurate lead times and quotations.
NPI can also be invaluable for the onboarding of existing products in partnership with OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers).
