Marl Manufacturing Helps Clients without Technical Skills to Introduce Technology Based Products

Marl Manufacturing announced a ‘concept to manufacturing’ service for businesses who need to introduce a technology based product but have no technical skills or resources in-house. The product realisation service is a complete technical product creation and realisation package, and goes well beyond the scope of traditional sub-contract manufacturing or electronic manufacturing services (EMS), covering initial electronic design, layout, prototyping and full production.

According to Adrian Rawlinson, Managing Director of Marl International, “A great many businesses are finding that their competitive position can be greatly improved by adding an electronic control element or a display user interface to their products, but as their business is non-technical they lack the expertise to turn their idea into a design let alone create a prototype or put it into production. The new Marl Manufacturing service is for them. We can literally take a drawing on the back of an envelope, and work in partnership with business management through the steps of turning that idea into a workable design, building a prototype and taking it into production. The concept to manufacturing service is aimed at businesses in non-technical sectors such as hobbies and leisure activity, medicine, safety and security.”

The key strength of Marl Manufacturing is that the entire product realisation process from concept to design to prototype to volume manufacturing is conducted under one roof at its base in Ulverston, England. This creates a strong connection between the different stages of the product realisation process, and provides a unique flexibility to adapt and change if the customer’s needs evolve and develop during the course of a project.

Rawlinson explained, “We can offer fast turn-around and competitive pricing on small volumes, but with our sourcing and logistics expertise we can match offshore manufactured price levels on much higher volumes as well. We provide a very competitive and highly professional assembly and manufacturing service based in the UK to our wide base of customers. Our heritage is in lighting products, but a project doesn’t have to have an LED in it for us to be able to manufacture it competitively,” he concluded.

Marl offers cable assembly, wiring looms and box build services as well as sub-assembly or complete system build including electronic PCB assembly. Design and manufacturing of bespoke housings to suit the application environment is a particular strength of Marl. Marl International has recently invested £120,000 in tools for prototype and small batch production allowing it to offer a particularly strong service in this area.
