Our engineers continue the tradition today by maintaining a sharp focus on all aspects of control panel technology, as it exists today and as it continues to evolve. Our engineers stay tuned to and help define future developments through active participation in steering committees. While new technologies are being defined, Gables works closely with operators to identify specific solutions for their fleets. In many cases, the future implementation of evolving technologies is supported in current designs, extending the expected useful life of our products.
Meanwhile, we have continually invested in plant and equipment, and have developed many proprietary processes that give us an edge in the market place. In stark contrast to the trend toward outsourcing manufacturing processes, Gables Engineering Inc. is a highly vertically integrated company. This offers our customer a rapid design-to-production cycle, and better overall control of quality and delivery. Gables Engineering Inc. operates a pick-and-place surface mount line, a wave soldering process, laser engraving and CNC machining facilities that are fully dedicated to our products. We also employ the latest in lighting measurement and calibration equipment to meet the rigid OEM lighting specifications.
