Rack Integration - Lean Manufacture

Using lateral thinking combined with in-house ingenuity, we were able to meet the customer’s requirements and deliver a seemingly impossible task, given the amount of devices and limited footprint. As a result we continue to share in the customer’s successes through the ongoing delivery of a certified and proven solution.
