Etteplan and Inission Lohja – The secret behind a 20-year partnership

Etteplan is an international group with more than 3,300 technology specialists who design circuit boards, electronic products and production testers. An essential part of the design projects also includes manufacturing, and this is where Inission Lohja becomes involved. With finished design files as a basis, Inission Lohja handles production within a specified time frame.

– We turn to Inission Lohja when we need electronic prototypes and circuit boards. We have been doing this for 20 years. With about a dozen completed projects per year, we have made a long and successful journey together, says Etteplan’s Business Director Tero Leppänen.

There is no time to waste
The most important thing for Etteplan is the time schedule. Manufacturing must be done rapidly and without errors. Even a day’s delay in schedule can be critical.

– With Inission’s help, we can offer our customers fast prototypes, which is a competitive advantage for us. We have a well-functioning collaboration based on flexibility. Over the years this has led to refined processes to become as efficient as possible, without unnecessary delays.

Tero Leppänen continues:
– The projects will not decrease in the future, that is for sure. On the contrary, we will certainly benefit from the entire Inission Group’s strengths and capabilities. Our goal is continuing to grow, and we think that the collaboration with Inission is interesting.

The secret ingredient to a long partnership?
According to Leppänen, open and honest dialogue has been the key in the collaboration between Etteplan and Inission Lohja. The cooperation has been fluent. Etteplan’s purchasing personnel and Inission’s manufacturing team keep in touch on daily basis, and the development of operations together has been continuous. Matters related to collaboration are raised fairly, whether it is about the content of the work, quality issues or schedule. Lessons have been learned, their root causes have been clarified and activities have been developed so that similar ones can be avoided in the future.

So the secret is not just an ingredient, but a whole recipe for success.
