Customer Industry: Marketing / Exhibitions
Area involved: Cable Assemblies
Production Requirements: Design and develop a multipurpose cable for multi-element charging on an exhibition stand
Project Delivery: 1 week
Benefit gained through ANR: The immediate supply of cable assembly for a blue chip company's exhibition stand led to a successful show, and enabled other unique marketing and stand style cables to be produced for our customer.
We were approached and tasked with producing a multi-faceted cable assembly, which allows multiple portable devices to be charged through one cable.
The main constraint was the time period. We had less than a week to design and source materials from production and produce 130 assemblies within one week.
One cable that permitted multiple devices to charge through a single USB connector, allowing a docking station effect for charging devices, sounded simple. But it was the speed of delivery which was the key.
Proving the process had to be instan and proto-types were produced within 24 hours. Material supplies then took a further 24 hours and on-site production was achieved on time, with installation completed ready for the show at the weekend.
The customer was very happy with the production and time schedules accomplished. Following on from this we have worked with them on multiple exhibition stand requirements for unique, bespoke and sometimes highly complex assemblies – and always within short timescales.
