The Nordell Launch Process

TRIED AND TESTED LAUNCH PROCESS

Launching a new product is complex. Utilising over 50 years of tried and tested manufacturing and product launch experience we will work with you to manage the launch of your product using the Nordell Product launch process. Starting with your design and product requirements, we will work with you to manufacture a product that meets your specific requirements. You don’t need to be an expert in plastics, you've chosen a partner that is! Nordell will build your tool, source all the parts and materials required and extensively trial the product before your technical sign off, ready for commercial production.
