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

End-to-end expertise

Our expertise includes engineering, product design, injection molding, custom molding, sub- and finished assembly and the on-time delivery of components and finished products for major industry. We streamline the total manufacturing process from start to finish, from supply-line development and management, process qualification, product testing and final assembly, all the way to drop shipping.

With mobile, adaptable manufacturing modules, Ferriot tailors on-time production to vastly different needs, including short runs on assemblies with multiple parts.

Institutional Experience

With 85 years of institutional experience and a trained workforce averaging nearly 20 years of experience per employee, our quality control extends to every product we turn out. Our workers know the rules: With every new set of part prints and specifications, they must train and demonstrate proficiency in the task at hand in order to participate in any given assembly. We run multiple assembly lines around the clock in our 200,000-square-foot facility.

Total Quality Management for contract manufacturing and custom injection molding.Supply Line Development: In addition to design and engineering services, Ferriot identifies and qualifies proper supplies for each component we assemble.

The process includes risk management so that if we’re sourcing particular components for a finished assembly, we start by verifying the capacity and fiscal soundness of several potential suppliers. From there, we begin a bidding and qualifying process to assure that the suppliers we select deliver on time and to our standards.

Supply-Line Management: In addition to sourcing materials, Ferriot schedules and tracks the production of molded parts within our own plant as well as the parts and pieces from qualified suppliers.

Because hundreds of different parts and pieces may go into a subassembly or finished product, effective supply-line management requires meticulous adherence to detail — in ordering, scheduling and tracking arrival times not to mention the task of inspecting parts and pieces upon arrival to assure quality compliance.

Process Qualification: Whatever the product is, there is an optimum process for making it efficiently while adhering to quality standards.

Ferriot’s design and engineering team creates the custom blueprints and manufacturing instructions that are critical to turning out finished products that meet high-quality standards.

Product Testing: Whatever a customer needs to meet quality standards on a finished assembly or product, we develop a scheme for meeting those requirements.

Depending on the complexity of the assembly, we may test every product that comes off the assembly line — or maybe every tenth product, if we’re dealing with less-complicated assemblies.

Final Assembly: When you need it, you get it. That’s an advantage of working with Ferriot. Whether it’s a long run or a small to mid-size batch, Ferriot produces quickly and delivers on time.

Drop Shipping: Products that leave Ferriot’s assembly line may ship directly to end users, depending on the wishes of the OEM.
