Expanded R&D Centre Drives Reduction in Development Cycle Time

In order to continue to provide the level of service UNITED CAPS customers have come to expect, and to maintain the 50/50 split between standard and bespoke product development, UNITED CAPS has extended its R&D centre located in Messia, France. With the addition of 200 square metres of floor space, an increase of 30 per cent, the facility now is comprised of 600 square metres. This was accompanied by a 30 per cent increase in staffing, the addition of a 3D printer for fast prototyping, and a restructuring of the R&D organisation to be more responsive to market needs. The end result is an average decrease in development time of 10 per cent to 20 per cent, a significant value to UNITED CAPS customers who are always looking to reduce product development cycle time.
