OUR PROCESS FROM A to Z

In fact, we do much more than plastics production.

 

We design, create, produce unique and quality parts, components and systems that match the exact specifications of our customers.  We have an efficient production process that combines automation as well as using the ‘human touch’ to produce our creations. Our production formula for success has been duplicated in production sites all over the world to be close to our customer sites and to efficiently serve their growing demands.

Listed below are the main stages of what we do from the initiation stage of a production project to its final stages of delivery.

The development of new concepts in components and systems are defined by customer needs, key market trends and new automotive regulations.

Our major objective is offer the right innovation at the right time based on market needs.

Production quantities are defined and agreed on with the customer at the beginning before the design stage.

To be able to create a new component or part, we first work closely with our customers to set their expectations and to best understand the technical and regulatory specifications.

We then use the latest computer (CAE-Computer Aided Engineering, CAD-Computer Aided Design) programs, virtual modulization, to design the piece carefully integrating specific features and functionalities.

Customers provide us with technical requirements to follow to develop specific designs that will meet their needs. We use several applications to create prototypes.

We use these models for testing and share the final versions with customers to ensure all their requirements are met.

After the prototype model is produced, it is tested in our Skill & Technical centers.

The customer approves the designs, reviews the technical specifications and the working performance of the product.

We work near-by, in the same country as our customers, to facilitate the testing and validation stages directly with them.

Raw materials and components used in our production are locally sourced and purchased from specialized suppliers.

We source and purchase, for example, plastic pellets and several components like small mechanisms, membrane, seals, retainers, sensors, actuators, and springs. Our goal is to design the perfect mold for mass production.

We develop the tools and the molds necessary to produce the final part or system. We have a specific production line for each part.

Once we produce the final tools and parts, we validate this with our customers. We also confirm our capability and rhythm for large production orders.

Once the part is verified, mass production begins

We produce the parts per the customer’s agreed forecast. We can efficiently produce mass quantities of parts using a good rhythm and timeframe that meets customers’ essential demands.

All our production plants are qualified, have the capacity to meet automotive industry standards in mass production.

We use a sustainable process in our plants that comply and adhere to environmental standards

Listed below are the main stages of what we do from the Initiation stage of a production project to its final stages of delivery.

Our production plants use both specialized robotics as well as a traditional human assembly

line to produce components and systems.

Modules and sub-modules are efficiently assembled and quality checked along the way.

We have several painting lines that are at the forefront of technology.

We have significant expertise in painting automotive interiors and exteriors and use over 125 different colors.

For exteriors, we use special anti-scratch spray, varnish and the PVD (Physical vapour deposition) process that preserves the paint finish.

Listed below are the main stages of what we do from the Initiation stage of a production project to its final stages of delivery.

Once the parts are packaged, delivery is made to the customer site.

We have good record of on-time delivery.

We have combined in our worldwide site, a production of over 200 million parts per year (2016) .
