Video: New Product Introduction Brings Your Invention to Life

"Founded in 1981, Synectic Product Development has built a strong reputation as a full-service product design and development company focused on design, research, development, and manufacturing of medical devices and consumer products.

 

As the Company prepares to celebrate its 40th anniversary, this wholly-owned subsidiary of the Mack Molding Company has set the stage for future success in its new location in Woodbridge Connecticut. In response to increasing demands, Synectic has created a state-of-the-art facility at 11 Lunar Drive where R&D and manufacturing go hand-in-hand in more than ten thousand square feet of shared manufacturing and engineering space.

 

Synectic has more than quadrupled its available assembly space to accommodate growth among clientele looking for design and rapid prototyping services. Additionally, doubling the size of the company’s machine shop has increased Synectic’s capabilities in the areas of part production to support prototyping and manufacturing.

 

In fact, Synectic has significantly boosted its focus on New Product Introduction – NPI for short – involving manufacturing at the front of R&D to help companies large and small expedite their time to market. In the past making changes to a new product could prove to be a challenge depending on the development phase, but today, with the company’s design and manufacturing engineers work together as a cross-functional team, bringing products to fruition is easier than ever.

 

Adam Lehman: 'This is the new Synectic NPI area. This is an area that we’ve created to help our new startup companies and larger-scale companies bring our new products to market. NPI stands for New Product Introduction and allows us to start to develop the manufacturing process early along the design process to facilitate bringing products faster to market. The new NPI area for Synectic allows us to help develop the process of manufacturing. So as we go from design all the way into manufacturing the design process has to stop and then the manufacturing process has to begin. It allows us to start to develop the fixtures and tools required for assembling all of the devices. It allows us to then do process development on each one of those tools and then also allows us to write the work instructions of how to assemble each and every one of those devices. The NPI area means to our customers that we have design and we have manufacturing together, coupled together. We don’t have a wall between the two organizations where one group is passing into another group. We work together so that we can make sure we understand design intent all the way through the manufacturing process. We can move quickly; we can be very nimble and in the end it just means bringing products to market much quicker for our customers.'

 

Whether you’re a start-up, seasoned entrepreneur, or a large organization, Synectic is ready to get your product to market. From brainstorming and concept development to engineering, product optimization, prototyping, testing, manufacturing, and packaged finished goods, with specialties in design engineering, creating intellectual property, pre-clinical testing, and manufacturing, Synectic Product Development is prepared to help you meet all your new product introduction needs.
