Overview

Even if you don’t know Ferriot, you’ve probably touched our products — in banks, at gasoline pumps and in offices, industrial facilities and hospitals.

In our key sectors of medical equipment, business machines and industrial applications, we offer engineering, product design, injection molding, custom molding, sub- and finished assembly and the on-time delivery of components and finished products for leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

With full-service capabilities, we serve as a total manufacturing partner from start to finish — from mold creation, supply-line development and management, process qualification, product testing and final assembly, to drop shipping.

For an OEM, it’s one-stop shopping for convenience and cost efficiency.

In our 85+ years of serving major industry, we’ve learned that our success depends on totally satisfied customers — customers we understand because we’ve walked with them, in their shoes, helping them reach the places they want to go, each step of their way.

Our history is about innovation coupled with artistry. And our future is about the new chapters we write — changing the nature of products and equipment, such as gasoline pumps and shake shingles.

Call us to learn more about our high-performance, innovative solutions, engineered for efficiency, functionality and manufacturability. And good looks, too.

When you consider new possibilities for high-performance alloys, think about converting metal to plastic…

…Or about structural foam as an alternative for wood or concrete.

…Or about previously impossible components and products now possible with gas-assist technology.

Medical Equipment

Ferriot Inc. is a full-service provider of enclosures for medical equipment.

With more than 20 years of demonstrated experience in this sector, Ferriot’s engineering team understands the sophisticated demands of an industry with a high degree of federal oversight.

Medical equipment manufacturing market

Our engineers can design complex enclosures and develop special-purpose outer surfaces for whatever performance is necessary in a medical environment. We take products and components from concept to finished manufacturing — starting with mold design and high-performance alloy engineering to finished product production, complete with decorative finishes and branding.

Our total quality-management program ensures documented inspections and traceability by lot.

Examples of Ferriot medical solutions include

  • Special resin selection and part design for lens encasements through which light can beam, achieving important performance criteria
  • Shielding that protects a device from radio frequency interference (RFI) and the outside environment from electromagnetic interference (EMI)
  • Outer surfaces that withstand hospital-strength cleaning products
  • Mobile arms that extend from medical devices
  • Filters to protect hospital vacuum systems from contamination

Call us to learn more about Ferriot’s ability to innovate advanced technologies and engineering solutions, such as

  • High specific gravity resins to replace lead
  • Electronically conductive resins, with conductivity built into the plastics to substitute for EMI/RFI shielding

Business Machines

In 1978, Ferriot Inc. entered the business-machine sector through the formidable doors of IBM. Initially we produced injection molds and tooling and decorative paint finishes for IBM’s original personal computers. Today, Ferriot continues to grow as a leading supplier of business-machine enclosures.

Injection molding for business machines

In this broad category, Ferriot’s experience covers a wide range of commercial applications, from vacuum air tubes (VATs) for financial transactions, to complex enclosures, complete with drawers and doors, for 8,000-pound digital printers.

In addition to engineering outer enclosures, Ferriot also supplies parts for the inside functionality of business machines. At times, a single enclosure may require hundreds of parts and pieces. Think 450 parts, for example, in the case of those 8,000-pound digital printers, with 80% of the components, from hinges to keypads, coming from both domestic or global suppliers.

Jobs such as this speak to our capacity for complicated supply-chain management, qualification systems and testing procedures, which is only possible with our trained labor force, where workers average nearly 20 years of experience.

Ferriot services include painting, a wide variety of decorative finishes, packaging, and drop shipping directly to end users.

Call us at any stage of product development. Ferriot can help take innovation to market, or we can step in when events require a transfer to a new manufacturing partner.

Industrial/Transportation

Injection molding for the industrial and transportation markets.

In a sector in which each original equipment manufacturer (OEM) requires superior engineering, Ferriot welcomes the challenge to innovate tomorrow’s equipment.

Our portfolio includes subway ticket machinery, airport security equipment and fuel dispensing pumps.

Often, hard and heavy usage requires a different class of a high-performance alloy to endure rugged performance requirements. Ferriot engineers can help formulate solutions to replace metal, withstand extreme outdoor conditions and prevent environmental impact.
