It's difficult to prove the true value of working with a company that has a large global footprint. This application story demonstrates how Marian's global footprint paired with quick action by our material experts resulted in an effective solution for HumanWare, who was on a tight timeline. In just 7 days from initial contact, Marian was able to work through the design and material selection processes, rapidly manufacture prototypes, and deliver a preliminary order of die-cut parts.

Carle visited Marian's website and downloaded our 4 Questions to Ask When Selecting a PSA eBook. Within the hour of first contact, Mike calls Carle to see if HumanWare needs help with a PSA application, and learns they are in need of a PSA to use on one of their new mobile electronic devices. Carle emphasizes time is of the essence.
Carle hopes to produce a preliminary, small amount of product (approximately 1,000 die-cut parts) in a very short time. He also tells Mike that assembly of the products will take place in China.
