Background

A major consumer products company in the healthcare industry developed a new product that required a custom manufacturing process.

Approach

Foth designed, manufactured and installed custom equipment to produce our client’s new product. The project required integrating our custom solution with “off the shelf” equipment. Time to market was critical during design and development of the equipment, and the system was subject to FDA validation requirements.
