At Mack, the design function is part of a total product development solution geared toward reducing cost and time-to-market. With this concept comes responsibility for the total project, so the tendency to “throw the project over the wall” – from industrial design to engineering to tooling and, finally, to manufacturing – is eliminated.
In addition to the Application Development Center (ADC) at its Vermont Headquarters plant, Mack operates Synectic Engineering, a product development and engineering services firm in Woodbridge, Conn. Founded in 1981, Synectic is a full service product development company focusing on design, research, development, and manufacturing of medical devices and consumer products.
Synectic’s specialties include design engineering, creating intellectual property, pre-clinical testing, and manufacturing. It designs for clinical relevance, manufacturability, ergonomics and cost efficiency. The company’s broad experience includes cardiac, endoscopic, diagnostics, bariatric, interventional cardiovascular, diabetes care, minimally invasive, orthopedics, endovascular, gynecological/urological, neurological, general surgery, dental, ophthalmologic and consumer healthcare products.
At the Mack HQ, our ADC engineers are reviewing customers’ products for functionality, cosmetics, processability, manufacturability, ease of assembly, cost, time-to-market, tooling options and more. Why? Because early design input minimizes processing problems, shortens cycle time and gets your product to market faster. The ADC also troubleshoots tooling and processing problems.
No matter where you are in your product lifecycle, Mack is ready to assist. With the ADC and Synectic Engineering, Mack has developed core expertise in design, prototyping and manufacturing services in response to market demands for:
- Experienced design-for-manufacturability & technical support
- Outsourced engineering & manufacturing services, allowing
- OEMs to focus on core competencies
- Solutions to development activity spikes
- Reduced overhead
- Eliminated finger-pointing
Our mission is to provide you with a one-stop product development and manufacturing model that translates into faster and more competitive service. No inter-company hand-offs. No transition time from one step to the next. No finger-pointing.
