Commitment is the Key to Service Factory Success

Invotek has been a blueprint for service factories for over three decades and has learned that building and maintaining a relationship is a key factor in progress and parallel growth. The fundamentals are apparent, such as an open-door policy, cost analysis, and transparency. But to keep that connection strong requires going beyond the obvious to prove that the reliance goes further than a product.

One of our longest relationships – 15 years – has been with a company that most recently awarded Invotek with the Supplier of the Year award for 2021. The Canadian company is one division of a much larger international powerhouse and has needed to be at the top of the global rankings to avoid consolidation. A relationship with Invotek has not only ensured their success but also added to it over the years.

The key to the success of this relationship has been flexibility. It is a need for any manufacturer, despite the bottom-line pressures that tend to push a factory into a one-dimensional approach to product development. Invotek continually has sought to be as flexible as possible with customers to ensure that all resources and capacity are available. This includes de facto mentoring as the customer learned to become a globally competitive company. The transition from small to mid to high volume, which admittedly can be a struggle for many rising operations, was made smoother thanks to the collaborative partnership.

The award is a testament to Invotek’s service factory mission and validates its current direction for future global partnerships.

 

Invotek now has access to two hundred local and international consultants  who are ready to help at a call’s notice. Invotek also has developed internal provisioning, warehousing, distribution and third-party logistics operations with access to both the Canadian and American markets. Its engineering capacities are growing and it is working to accommodate any electronics requirement by advancing at the same pace as technology.

There’s an old adage that the sky’s the limit although the means of getting there differs for almost every company. For Invotek, the blue sky comes in the form of a one stop shop. They are exploring avenues to offer full life cycle care, from cradle to grave – and as a nod to the need for sustainability – rebirth. They are committed to relationships over the long term and this reward is a reflection of those efforts.

Invotek would be happy to talk with you about your needs and how we can be YOUR factory.

Invotek: Factory and Service

Invotek Top 10 Electronics Manufacturing Service Companies by Manufacturing Technology Insights

March 2021, the Invotek Group was recognized as one of the Top 10 Electronics Manufacturing Service Companies by Manufacturing Technology Insights, the leading publication on the global state of electronics manufacturing. This global honour highlights Invotek’s commitment to service and collaboration throughout the product lifecycle. To put it succinctly, ‘We are YOUR factory’.

Becoming a service factory is not an easy process. After all, for thousands of years, the factory was compartmentalized into one stage of manufacturing:  production. Craftmanship, quality control, and aftermarket support were all separate entities that required separate resources and capacities. But in the late 1980s, that paradigm shifted. Companies that were destined for success required a factory that did more than make, they also offered services outside the traditional spectrum. The benefits came in the form of lower costs, higher quality, and more reliable delivery.

Invotek was founded at the beginning of the service factory era and has successfully offered highly reliable electronics manufacturing services for three decades. Specializing in full turnkey solutions, the company is able to harness several global facilities to provide cost-effective, flexible, and in-house service to its clients. The range of services span across the product lifestyle including design and development, prototype testing, product validation, launch readiness, supply chain management, advanced manufacturing, distribution, and order fulfillment. They follow the principles of Value Engineering and always ensure the product and the client has a globally competitive edge.

Being a part of the product lifecycle also means being prepared to deal with any changes either in the need for production or the need for engineering services. Design and launch processes are done concurrently such that any alterations in one can be readily managed. Just-in-Time delivery with flexible manufacturing schedules ensures that any changes in product demand can quickly be fulfilled. Supplemental engineering services are a call away and any customer dissatisfaction, should it happen, are collected and resolved.

Invotek has kept up with the times so that the company can offer the latest technological capacity to meet any electronics demand. This includes system design and development, electrical design & PCB layout, embedded software development, Class A form factor and mechanical design to match numerous high speed SMT lines, and AOI to ensure quality. Apart from the factory floor, the company has the capacity to provide full retail distribution and sales representation.

Invotek is proud to be one of the world’s top 10 Electronics Manufacturing Service Companies and thanks Manufacturing Technology Insights for their belief in our process model. We will continue to offer the best in electronics manufacturing across the product lifecycle and strive to meet and beat all client’s expectations. At Invotek, ‘We are YOUR factory’. Let us work with you to make your product and company a success.
