SILICON SUPPORT SOLUTIONS 
THROUGH EARLY STAGE OF PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT 

Vexos early involvement in the design cycle can provide customers with a product that is more cost effective and has increased manufacturability, quality, reliability, and overall lifecycle. During our involvement in the product development we’ll focus on 4 key stages (Design Phase, Procurement Strategy, Product Development and Manufacturing) throughout the product life-cycle and provide critical support and feedback to address potential issues and ensure a successful new product introduction. 

Our Markham facility is located in the heart of Ontario, Canada is focused on delivering Silicon Support Solutions. It caters to both existing customers who want a quick proof-of-concept as well as emerging companies who need prototypes of their new inventions. This Tech Center streamlines the traditional manufacturing process by minimizing non-value-add steps while still leveraging robust supply chain and manufacturing expertise. 

In addition to providing fast turn-around times, Vexos provides services such as Bill of Materials validation, custom design, product testing, value analysis, value engineering, and supply chain optimization. Additionally, tight integration with new product introduction and production teams means a smooth transition from prototype to manufacturing.
