Contract Equipment Manufacturing (alternatively referred to as Contract Build, Outsourced Manufacturing or Equipment Build) is an area of increasing importance to IES business growth strategy that goes towards underlining not just our mechanical and electrical competence but leverages upon the wide range of strategic capabilities we offer in house.
Contract Manufacturing Explained
In essence contract manufacturing involves IES assembling or building high value, high technology machinery or equipment on behalf of a customer. This usually involves:
Types of Builds
Typical of equipment builds we undertake are:
Most projects tend to involve high value, complex and bespoke pieces of equipment, produced at low volumes.
IES Build Facility
IES has a fully equipped clean workshop complete with 3 Phase power and compressed dry air, plus cooling water and inert gases for testing purposes. Our workshop also has a vacuum leak testing facility, with other service equipment being brought in as and when required.
A vital element in any manufacturing process is CE compliance, with most machinery and equipment to be used in the European market requiring certification of CE compliance. As part of our build programme we can undertake the specific assessment and testing that will result in the compliation of comprehensive test data and technical construction files that can afford the client the ability to self-declare for CE compliance.
IES is uniquely positioned to be able to offer customers a fully integrated in-house capability. It’s this that differentiates the company from all potential competitors. Other benefits of working with us are:
