The Catalan SME, founded in 1992, is an industrial design and engineering company specialising in technical plastics products, as well as injection moulds and mechanical tooling used in their manufacture. It owns a multidisciplinary technical team with in-depth knowledge of design software programs and materials, mainly plastics, which enables them to develop products from design to polymer 3D printing prototyping in accordance with their customers' needs. Subsequently, the SME industrialises the prototypes by relying on a wide local network of manufacturers who comply with main standards as ISO 9001, ISO 3485 or ISO 14001.
The process followed by the company in project management is:
- Brainstorming and idea sharing.
- Product design and conceptualisation.
- Engineering and 3D CAD (Computer-aided design).
- Prototyping and 3D printing.
- Small series production and manufacturing follow-up.
The company has experience in international cooperation. It is member of the Health-LSR (Liquid Silicone Rubber) industrial consortium, which is a cross-border project between Spain and France that aims at developing innovation around the use of LSR in the health sector. Its role in this consortium is focused on the design of LSR parts and injection moulds. Additionally, the SME works with different French companies and is looking to expand its services internationally, mainly in Europe and Asia.
Furthermore, due to its commitment to innovation and excellence combined with customer satisfaction orientation, they have been awarded a Best Product Engineering Studio in Spain, granted by the Build Construction & Engineering Magazine.
The Catalan SME is interested in partners looking for subcontracting or outsourcing the design, engineering and manufacturing of their technical plastic products to expand its market share internationally.
