Icarus was aware that when other companies chose a name-brand, offshore vendor to build their first product they were surprised by the effort required to effectively manage arms-length production. For their newest product, Nautilus Marine Rescue GPS, they repatriated production with great success. Most companies go offshore believing that it is a cost-saving option to bring new products to market – but is it?
In Icarus's case, the firm’s first offshore manufacturing experience became more expensive due to unexpected issues relating to a lack of onsite management for their new product introduction according to LaLau. As a result, Icarus chose QEI’s Original Device Manufacturer (ODM) services. “You can cost efficiently build a quality product in North America through better design and partnering with a local manufacturing partner,” says LaLau. “Together with Dorigo Systems, we were able to leverage their contract manufacturing services, coupled with our design, to seamlessly fit into the manufacturing process, obtaining 99.4% first pass yields for Icarus.”

In a high-tech world, it’s easy to see innovation – and forget the people behind the scenes. For Mark Pillon, P.Eng., the founder and president of Dorigo Systems Ltd., people are the priority, because they’re the source of success. “The world is changing rapidly, and while technology is the engine that drives that change, it is still people that make things happen—and the people at Dorigo are among the very best at what they do.” It’s a philosophy that has garnered Dorigo a reputation for excellence within the Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) industry for over 28 years. Pillon started Dorigo in 1988 from his parent’s home, armed with an engineering science degree from Simon Fraser University and a grand vision.
