Biomedical – Case Study

Problem

​A leading US-based manufacturer of biomedical instruments opened a manufacturing facility in the UK to make instrument modules for final assembly at the company’s American HQ.

​Problems with delivery, quality and price stability soon arose as the instrument components were supplied from many sources including UK-based and US-based suppliers as well as in-house manufacture.

Solution

​Having found Tridan Engineering and its partnership development successes via our website, contact was made leading to a supply agreement for machined parts and assemblies.

​Tridan currently supply 75 various components for this company – a total of approximately 5000 parts per month. These are supplied on a just in time (JIT) basis against a rolling schedule that can be varied to suit the customers build requirements.

Outcome

​The company now uses Tridan as the principal supplier to its cutting edge manufacturing facility in the USA.

​As well as slashing overheads, the customer now enjoys a relationship with a proactive supplier involved in product development through helping to design components for manufacture, in turn reducing part costs.
