After 11 years of supervised production in China, ARID has now established its own manufacturing and assembly facility in Shenzhen, China, with a range of high-quality equipment in operation, including injection moulding, a specialized lathe for creating custom precision parts and a large scale twin head 3D printer. This facility is 100% founded and controlled by ARID The additional facility allows ARID to better manage production at all stages and ensure ongoing product quality and consistency. It also means ARID can more easily achieve exacting and timely production while controlling costs, to maintain budgets and ensure the cost-effectiveness of breakthrough products. This has made it possible for ARID to not only design but also deliver fully finished products that are constantly monitored for quality and possible design improvements on each production run.
