Cre8tek involved in major new product venture

06.09.18

International product launch from Ergonomic Solutions coming soon

The Nørresundby company Ergonomic Solutions is set to kick off a major new venture in September with the international launch of its ground-breaking product, OpenSpace Duo, in close collaboration with Cre8tek.

Cre8tek is responsible for the delivery of the mechanical components for the new product, the prototype of which has already been presented at international retail fairs in London, New York and other cities.

OpenSpace Duo is a Mobile Point of Sale (Mpos) system and is intended for retail, restaurants, etc. What makes this product innovative is that it makes it combines the possibility to order and pay via two different platforms. For example, you can use an Ingenico or Verifone terminal to pay on the one side and a Samsung or Apple product to order on the other.

Ergonomic Solutions is already an international market leader in Mpos solutions.

While Cre8tek is supplying the mechanical components, the Viborg-based company Ektos is delivering the electronics. The product is assembled in Ergonomic Solutions’ brand-new manufacturing facilities in Nørresundby.

Ce8tek injection moulds the plastic components in Shenzhen, and the tools for this process are manufactured in Cre8tek’s own tool shop.

“Our great collaboration with Ergonomic Solutions serves as an example of how moving cost-intensive parts assembly to China can help improve competitiveness through a more efficient production setup. Ultimately, it also helps create more local jobs,” said Poul Dørup Olesen, Manager Director and head of Cre8tek’s Hjørring division.

Ergonomic Solutions, which has worked with Cre8tek for several years, especially values the fact that communication between the two businesses has been seamless.

“Our partnership with Cre8tek in Hjørring has been excellent, both in terms of communication and the work itself, and it gives us a good inroad to the benefits that come with manufacturing in China,” said Managing Director Per Bjerring of Ergonomic Solutions.

Ergonomic Solutions was originally established as a company focused on technology mounting solutions. With the launch of OpenSpace Duo, ESM will become a company that also specialises in electronics. Per Bjerring expects that the OpenSpace Duo venture will result in increased competitiveness for the Nørresundby company.
