In markets for products such as mobile phones are price and time-to-market constantly under pressure. At the same time manufacturers are gradually losing the ability to consider series/mass production already in the development of new models. For this reason they include developer and manufacturer of assembly lines in the initial stages of development. This is the reason for IMS to work together with VIRO, to be among the top manufacturers. Customers are amongst others manufacturer of razors, sensors for automobiles, medical products and components for hearing instruments and mobile phones. IMS aims to provide total solutions, says CEO Gerard Huiberts. “We begin our collaboration with the customer very early and think about the engineering process or even product development. We do not only think, we act. We commission the engineering and production of components and standardized modules. We assemble, provide the control software and qualify the personnel in the production lines. „Since years, IMS and VIRO cooperate in these projects.
