  • Assembly & test design and automation
  • Pilot manufacture under ISO 13485 and ISO 9001
  • Manufacturing scale up
  • Root cause analysis

CDP is an end-to-end innovation partner – a business optimized for breakthrough innovation. But end-to-end also means our process is streamlined: from the very beginning, we know where we’re headed. This pays off in a concrete way when it comes to one of the trickiest points in the development process: transferring the finished product to manufacturing.

We embed manufacturing engineering principles early on, ensuring ideal design for manufacture. As the design shapes up, we develop the appropriate manufacturing processes, supply chains, and automation solutions in parallel. Our ISO 13485 certification includes short-run manufacturing, enabling us to manufacture pre-production devices for extended testing, market, or clinical trials. We provide our clients with much more than the product IP: we make sure you have complete manufacturing information, so you have the flexibility to source the most competitive supply chains.

For clients who have already made development progress, we can help with manufacturing challenges through analyzing and solving problems and building supply chains and assembly and inspection systems. At CDP, we don’t just help clients to realize breakthrough products; we support them every step of the way.
