“FLEXcon made it easy to take an idea from concept to reality,” says Jim Biagioni, COO at Polestar. “The team worked with us every step of the way to translate our technology from a lab scale to a repeatable, manufacturing process. FLEXcon developed a custom solution for us to use in our product development that solves a real need for our customer base.”
“At FLEXcon, we like to think of our partners as the brains and FLEXcon as the brawn,” says Shaun McDonough, Executive V.P. of Purpose, People and Process. “They come up with all the cool concepts, and then collaborate with us to use our machines in a continual iterative process that allows those concepts to go from experiment to commercial reality.”
Polestar’s primary target at the moment is both recreational and commercial divers; however, their new sensors have potential applications anywhere a sensor for CO2 is needed, such as first responder and firefighting equipment. The sensor project is a great example of collaboration between FLEXcon and a technology partner on a concept and then working together to ramp up manufacturing.
Regardless of the size or the turnaround time for sales, at FLEXcon we relish the chance to work with creative engineering minds and to find solutions to their challenges. Our work just doesn’t get more satisfying than that.
