Process innovation to help
you achieve your potential
Combining technical knowledge with practical expertise, we take a consultative approach to our role as your supply partner. We coach and advise your team through the R&D process to prepare for production, and our deep understanding of material selection and qualification procedures can significantly improve a project’s timeline.
Defining your conditions and goals
DH Sutherland acts as an objective third party that connects your team to the finest suppliers of advanced materials in the world. When we engage with you, we dig in deep to understand the specific needs of your buyers, engineers, and everyone else with a stake in your success. To get there, we ask the right questions, starting with:
- What do you want to do? What will success look like?
- What certifications are applicable to you?
- What’s your anticipated schedule and ramp rate?
- What materials are you working with?
- What should we know about your manufacturing process?
Leveraging opportunities for efficiency
To help turn plans into a feasible manufacturing process, your DH Sutherland team works to make sure all sides of the engineering table are represented. Our goal is to balance design engineering and production engineering to create an efficient manufacturing process that satisfies all your objectives.
For instance, we may be able to supply materials in smaller quantities — and with shorter lead times — than manufacturers. Because we have our finger on the pulse of advanced composite manufacturing and supply chain, we can often recommend a process or product that saves valuable time on your line.
Fully committing to your success
Once production begins, our team stays in close contact to ensure that you’re carrying and using the optimal amount of product, without supply interruptions. And we gladly sweat the small stuff, so if you need quick advice or a resource to keep your project moving — even something as simple as a data sheet — consider it a priority for us.
