AUSTIN, Texas — Bantam Electronics, Inc., a leading provider of high mix electronics manufacturing services, including custom systems manufacturing and supply chain management for emerging OEM companies and electronic products, today announced the addition of engineering design and new product integration (NPI) services to its customer offering.

In a move that further expands Bantam Electronics’ ability to provide best-in-class high-mix manufacturing and supply chain management services to its customers, the company has added key pre-manufacturing services focused on helping emerging OEM companies reduce manufacturing design cycles, and, most importantly, shorten the time to first product shipment.

“We are very excited with the addition of these services,” said Michael Chaddock, President and CEO of Bantam Electronics, Inc. Emerging OEM companies often do not have access to non-captive engineering design staff and resources to assist with critical phases of product development such as custom component engineering, prototyping, and design for manufacturing (DFM). “Making these services available enables us to help customers reach a manufacturing solution more rapidly-with fewer design, pricing and availability compromises-and begin building market share.”

Bantam’s engineering design and NPI services, which are the result of additions to the company’s engineering staff as well as expanded partnerships, will provide the majority of resources required for hardware product design, testing, and manufacturing integration, including mechanical and electrical design, component engineering, DFX, test fixture design, prototype design, and prototype assembly facilities.
