DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Sep 20, 2016) - Following continued growth, Riverwood Solutions is taking steps to broaden its presence in the emerging technology ecosystems. As one of several broader initiatives, Riverwood Solutions has joined the MEMS & Sensors Industry Group, where it will continue providing services that focus on taking critical aspects of emerging technology and helping companies create and manufacture leading edge hardware products.
"We are excited about the addition of Riverwood Solutions to our ecosystem," commented Karen Lightman, executive director of MEMS & Sensors Industry Group. "As our global affiliations continue to expand, it is exciting and important to have companies in our membership such as Riverwood, which strive to apply practical solutions for the commercialization of the technologies we have been focusing on developing."
With a rich outsourced manufacturing background and significant expertise in the development and manufacturing space, Riverwood Solutions utilizes its employees in the US, Asia, Mexico and Europe to create solutions for companies needing to rapidly bring new products to market. Companies continue to hire Riverwood Solutions to provide engineering expertise to assist in prototype development and refinement, DFx, and value engineering, as well as supply chain design, implementation and management. The integrated structure at Riverwood Solutions of both the Engineering and the Operations teams creates significantly differentiated solutions that are becoming much more critical to product companies needing to get to market ahead of competitors.
"Focusing on accelerating time to success; it is critical in today's environment that an experienced team can be assembled and deployed within days to provide the expertise necessary to bring a new product to market within an increasingly shorter time span," remarked John Daker, VP Business Development at Riverwood Solutions.
Riverwood Solutions is focused on emerging products that utilize leading edge technologies in advanced optics, sensors, displays, and robotics among other areas, and have helped launch hundreds of products in consumer, medical, and industrial segments.
"In addition to the steps necessary to launch a product, the intimate link to emerging technologies that are enabling the next generation of devices is a key focus for us. The products of tomorrow are enabled by technical advances in the MEMS, MOEMS, Advanced Semiconductor and Sensor areas, so it is a natural fit that we would want to work closely with groups like the MEMS and Sensors Industry Group who are continuing to provide entrepreneurs, innovators and industry enablers with a platform for success," noted Julian Searle, VP Sales and Marketing at Riverwood.
