"We’ve worked with CDN for a number of years on projects ranging from minor drawing maintenance, to industrial design presentations, to complete innovative new product launches that we’ve then scaled to global production. CDN consistently provides the right pool of talent for our needs and efficiently engages in the work without letting unnecessary delays compromise our valuable time to market. We pride ourselves on our own German engineering high performance door product development group, but when we saw the need to respond to evolving customer demands in our domestic industrial rubber door market, we knew we needed a local team to execute properly. CDN reviewed our customers’ applications and our manufacturing environments first-hand then responded by providing a great design that fit both like a glove. Our new Albany RR1000 door has been the most successful new product launched in the history of our North American organization. We know to look to CDN again for high performance design help to get high performance outcomes like that in the future."
“I quickly realized the enclosure design would present numerous engineering challenges – many of which I could not solve on my own. I didn’t have an engineering team – or much experience with large aluminum extrusions. I knew the engineering support I needed would be at its highest during initial development. I considered creating my own team, but wondered how I would keep them busy after the design was done? So, after crunching the numbers, I realized it made the most sense to outsource the initial engineering required to experts while I set up the manufacturing team. CDN was chosen on the recommendation from a local aluminum extrusion supplier I had worked with. CDN provided research, design, engineering, prototyping and testing support. They are experts at what they do and I highly recommend them every chance I get.”
“When our plates are full, I’m lucky to have Robert and the CDN guys available to pitch in when and where needed. They are experienced, competitively priced, and have earned my trust. On a recent project the CDN team was able to facilitate our brainstorming needs, provide concept sketches, execute CAD models & renderings, provide SLA prototypes and deliver tool-ready geometry all within a condensed timeframe. They’re a great partner, fun to work with and I sincerely appreciate their commitment to the success of our business.”
“Specialty Enterprises has a long, successful history as a fabrication and welding job shop for industries in agriculture, aerospace, defense and construction. When we saw an opportunity to develop our own product line, we knew it was beyond the capacity of our staff and we would need outside engineering help. Through a reference from a vendor, we found CDN. Not only did the CDN team have the skills to deliver a completely engineered design for our new spray booms, but they did so with a level of creativity and sense of ownership that was way beyond our expectations. The successes we have had due to CDN’s contributions have greatly exceeded any investments we have made in them. Mike, Pete and the rest of the guys are an absolute pleasure to work with and will always be my go-to engineering and prototyping source.”
"CDN has been with us since we started development of the Turf Brush in 2009, and provides the engineering, prototyping, manufacturing, quality control, warehousing, packaging and shipping services for our product, as well as keeping tabs on any warranty and service issues, and producing our brochures and manuals. We have thoroughly enjoyed the friendly, yet very professional relationship that the entire staff at CDN has maintained with us over the years. CDN has undoubtedly been a major influence on the continued success of our company!
