  • When appropriate ARID supplies some production processes in-house. For mass production, tool design completed by ARID or an outside supplier, ARID supplies designer supervision of every stage of every component in the manufacturing, assembly and packaging processes.

    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 specialised lathe for creating custom precision parts and a large scale twin head 3D printer. This facility is also controlled by Andrew Rogers, who travels to China 6 to 8 times per year, to personally supervise coordination and production there 60 to 80 days every year.

    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.

    ARID also supplies all product user interface graphics as part of the design package, as well as all bulk packaging solutions for the most protective and cost effective transport and distribution of the finished product.
