Western Reserve Controls Introduces New Sustaining Engineering Services

Automation electronics engineering and manufacturing firm, Western Reserve Controls, Inc., announces new Sustaining Engineering Services for manufacturers of electronic products.

Akron, OH, October 1st, 2017 – (WRC) Western Reserve Controls, Inc, a provider of Automation Control Products plus Engineering Design and Manufacturing Services, today announced the launch of its new Sustaining Engineering Services.

Offering a wide range of available capabilities and expertise, WRC Sustaining Engineering Services can be the answer to common resource issues faced by Engineering organizations every day.

WRC’s team of sustaining engineering experts can off-load new product developers by:

  • Dealing with component obsolescence issues
  • Maintaining compliance with RoHS and other standards
  • Implementing customer requests for new features on existing products
  • Performing Value Engineering redesigns to increase product margins
  • and much, much, more…

Company founder and president, Fred Billock stated, “When new features or design changes are required for an existing product sometimes they are delayed due to the availability of the required engineering resources. In this case, it can be more efficient and cost effective to seek outside talent rather than delaying a new product development the internal engineering team is currently working on. To alleviate this resource problem outsourced Sustaining Engineering Services from WRC can often get legacy product changes and updates completed faster and more reliably than internal staffs. In fact, if desired, outsourced Sustaining Engineering and manufacturing can also bring expanded margins due to Value Engineering improvements that can often be incorporated at the same time.”

Available now, WRC forecasts rapid growth in outsourced Sustaining Engineering Services as shorter technology lifecycles and competitive market forces push electronic product manufactures to focus their limited resources on new product development while revisiting their approach to legacy product support for their installed base.
