Long before it needed help with manufacturing and logistics, a major lighting OEM teamed with MES, Inc. on the development of a new luminaire. As a result of involving MES in the product’s earliest design stages, development time for the new luminaire was shortened dramatically.
On May 17, 2019, MES Inc. was proud to be a supporter of the Columbus Council on World Affairs’ (CCWA) 2019 International Awards Ceremony. More than 600 business, civic, and academic leaders gathered together to celebrate outstanding contributions to global education and understanding. In addition to celebrating honorees, the ceremony serves as a fundraiser to support educational programs, including Global Scholars Diploma.
A Lean Approach to Low-Volume Production Manufacturers can enhance management of HMLV production by engaging LEAN suppliers. Manufacturers need a more focused, creative and flexible solution for finding HMLV supplier partners. Outsourcing the entire HMLV function frees managers to do what they do best – manage high-volume business.
The Ohio Minority Supplier Development Council, Chase Bank and The Ohio State University-Fisher College of Business proposed The Middle Market MBE program. The goal of the program is to provide development opportunities to middle market MBEs to ensure their long-term viability and continued growth. MES president & CEO Hiten Shah was invited to be a part of a panel discussion to share his experiences as a self-challenging business owner and who is seeking to build the value of his business.
A flange used globally posed a cost and supply problem for Schneider Electric. The challenge presented to MES was to reduce the flange’s production cost while securing its availability. MES was able to meet Schneider’s needs by delivering an end-to-end engineering solution. THE CHALLENGE The Schneider component consisted of a nut and a flange. Both parts were stainless steel, a relatively expensive option that had originally been chosen in order to withstand outdoor applications where potential exposure to moisture, cold or chemical environments could otherwise result in corrosion and component failure. The nut had been brazed to the flange. The use of stainless steel and the added production step of brazing meant increasingly higher production costs for the component, and Schneider was seeking an alternative that would reduce cost without compromising the durability of the finished part. THE SOLUTION MES proposed an engineering solution that would lower the component’s manufacturing […]
