Company’s smart factory model and consistent on-time delivery help companies meet demands for growing marketing opportunities

LOVELAND, Colo. – March 11, 2020 –Vergent Products, a company providing rapid prototyping and contract manufacturing services, has achieved formal

certification to manufacture printed circuit board and electromechanical assemblies for aerospace applications. With this certification, Vergent can provide product assemblies and partner with a wide range of aerospace and defense companies as well as tiered suppliers in the industry.

“Vergent excels at building difficult and demanding electronic products that our clients need,” said Jay Dokter, CEO of Vergent Products. “Our extension into the aerospace industry with the AS9100D certification now allows us to partner with key companies to support industry demand and innovation.”

Both the aerospace and defense industries are poised for growth yet delays in production are one cause of potential stagnation. Deloitte’s 2020 Global Aerospace and Defense industry outlook reports that the defense sector soared in 2019 as defense budgets increased; however, production-related issues and cancelations were a few factors that slowed growth.

At the same time, in the past two decades, manufacturing productivity growth appears stuck, according to Deloitte. Smart factories that invest in fully digital operations, efficient change management strategy, measurable proofs-of-concept, and incremental investments are essential to kick-starting manufacturing efficiencies to continue supporting key industries. Vergent’s smart factory model and success through on-time delivery are ideal for future aerospace growth and innovation.

Vergent is known for its consistent manufacturing and on-time delivery thanks in part to its smart factory, 100% digital operation. Vergent utilizes cyber-secure data management, vendor flow down processes, and a robust supply chain. The company predicts and prevents problems before they happen, resulting in exceptional product reliability in extreme end-use environments that demand performance. The certification allows Vergent to enter the industry at a time where companies need better manufacturing solutions.

“Vergent has been a leader in implementing smart factory principles in our state-of-the-art manufacturing operations for many years,” said Tracy Ireland, COO of Vergent Products. “Our paperless factory enables a level of mistake-proofing that delivers exceptional product quality, and also gives our clients rapid data retrieval on their production data, down to the operator and calibrated tool level, in a cyber-secure environment.”
