Pearson Matthews - Innovation Consultants

Development of this new blood glucose meter had to be within a fixed budget and compressed timescale. The client could source near-market design directly from Far East manufacturers, but instead gave design and manufacturing responsibility to us. Keeping control in the UK ensured the design was fresh and innovative whilst Far East manufacture meant cost targets were met.

UK design and Far East manufacture is the best way to retain design insight and keep costs low. Nearly $15m of manufacturing we placed

with one supplier has ironed out communication difficulties, built trust and puts our jobs at the head of the queue. Pearson Matthews´ experience establishing relationships has helped to achieve this.

With toolmaking in progress we built rigs to test prototype parts, made adjustments, then retested first-off tool samples to ensure performance was met.
