We are engineers. Designers. CTOs. CEOS. R&D Rock stars. Geniuses. Leaders. Hundreds of the best & the brightest. We are here. We are ready.

The formation of NextFlex has been a benefit to the rapidly expanding field of Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE). Formed in 2015 through a cooperative agreement between the US Department of Defense (DoD) and FlexTech Alliance, NextFlex is a consortium of companies, academic institutions, non-profits and state, local and federal governments with a shared goal of advancing U.S. Manufacturing of FHE. Learn more.

We are manufacturers.

We are innovators.

We are educators.

It takes people coming together from across the United States in industry, academia and state, local and federal governments to collaborate and coordinate their efforts to move what are a series of good ideas from R&D, into commercial production, and to then have a skilled and available workforce able to manufacture the solution at the other end. And at the center of all of these efforts, acting as the connective tissue binding everything together, is NextFlex.

What are the benefits of joining NextFlex?

  1. Gain competitive advantageBecoming a member of NextFlex positions your organization for recognition as a member of a small community of thought leaders that are driving manufacturing innovation.
  2. Enhance your supply chainYou’ll create connections with a wide array of “first movers” that are likely to play a critical role in your company commercializing its next big product. You’ll be able to leverage NextFlex expertise to move along the experience curve faster, at less cost, with reduced chance of project failure.
  3. Identify best practicesNextFlex is developing the competencies and capabilities across multiple disciplines including control, information, process, safety and manufacturing operations that will become the standard used by all FHE players.

“NextFlex will advance flexible hybrid electronics manufacturing, enabling domestic production of this critical technology.”
“... hybrid electronics has the potential to bring significant performance improvements and new design standards for aerospace and defense applications.”
