As a custom electronics assembly, AE provides key value by providing manufacturing tailored to customer goals and the team prides itself on creating valuable partnerships.
During the pandemic, manufacturing and supply chains were impacted and as a result, a new plan of attack was needed for companies with in-house design and manufacturing. AFTI pivoted to battle acute component shortages, rising shipping costs and bottlenecks to maintain deliveries and customer demand for WatchDogs and relied on August flexibility to get there .
AFTI and August have designed Supply Chain solutions so that the AFTI respects its commitments. Located in Calgary, Alberta, AFTI WatchDog’s head office is attached to its manufacturing facility. All WatchDog units are built, configured, and tested in-house specifically for each customer before shipping to Canada and the United States.
“Often companies think they have to go to Asia-Pacific for cost-effective manufacturing, which they don’t. With August, we can produce high quality products right here in Calgary. We are continually working to evaluate and improve our processes, modernize our equipment and expand our ability to serve a diverse customer base. – August Electronics, COO, Tanya Korenda
It has become clear that manufacturers need to develop an effective end-to-end strategy that optimizes the supply chain, keeps costs low, and provides dual supply. Transparency in timelines, pricing challenges, and capabilities allowed for clear collaboration and expectations. For AFTI WatchDog and August Electronics, the partnership meant mutual benefits for customer relationships and cost-effective domestic products.
“2020 presented many challenges for any industry that sources semiconductors for its products. August Electronics has worked closely with our team so that we can continue to provide our customers with our WatchDog solution. August Electronics has worked with us on developing a process that will continue to help us with parts availability for years to come. – Alesandro De Lima, Vice President of Development and Manufacturing at AFTI WatchDog
