ConcealFab designs and manufactures electronics and antennas for wireless communications that are hidden in plain sight. Communities want the communication equipment in their neighborhoods but consider antennas an eyesore. These communities establish requirements to hide the antenna, such as this example from San Diego
The components are designed into light posts or other items in a neighborhood. Many communities want a custom design, so design time is an important factor in selecting a source for these items. BtenConsulting helped ConcealFab develop a streamlined design process which cut lead time to a matter of weeks. BtenConsulting also helped organize the workshop and implement lean processes. As the company grew, BtenConsulting helped lay out the work flow in a new, much larger, manufacturing facility and mentored the shop floor managers on implementing Lean Principles. Over this time ConcealFab greatly reduced lead time, while improving quality and productivity. Working closely with the VP Operations at ConcealFab, BtenConsulting helped the company double revenue three years in a row.
