We are Manufacturers

Bringing big ideas to life in advanced electronics

Manufacturers large and small alike are joining the NextFlex community to amortize planned equipment investments, anticipate future standards and practices, and extend the reach of their current network.

By placing equipment in NextFlex’s state of the art Technology Hub, existing NextFlex members are realizing a number of immediate benefits.

  • Donated equipment is considered an in-kind contribution that offsets dues, giving a company access to full member benefits at a reduced out of pocket expense
  • Early visibility into new materials, new processes and new products that will become industry standard
  • Access to technologists from across the country and beyond that will gain access to, and familiarity and technical competency with, your equipment
  • The NextFlex Technology Hub serves a showplace for manufacturing equipment that is constantly on display for tours of visitors from all over the world
  • The NextFlex production line is regularly and prominently featured in all Member and general audience presentations, thereby increasing the awareness, understanding and visibility of every Technology Hub participant
