When Monode was established in 1978, its founders won a project
from a high-tech brand which has become wellknown for providing
cutting-edge indoor environmental control products. The company didn’t
have an in-house electronic design, development and manufacturing
facility – a function which was outsourced to Monode.
The first project Monode undertook for this client was to analyse
transformer failures on steam humidifiers to resolve a design fault. At
the same time, Monode also developed a mains monitor which was
commercially highly successful and distributed through RS Components.
The client was delighted with the initial project results, and so
a long-term collaboration was born. Monodehas designed and continues to
manufacture their core suite of electronic control and monitoring
modules. It also carries out a variety of other projects, bridging
skills and facilities gaps, while many of the customer’s staff benefit
from knowledge transfer.
Some of the equipment that Monode manufactures for this client is
destined for niche markets and so is needed in small quantities. For
example, Monode provides ‘just in time’ deliveries of any batch size
from 10 units per week – it is not commercially viable, and normally not
possible, for overseas manufacturers to do this.
Today, Monode is still updating and manufacturing their suite of
environmental control units, replacing the commercially successful
products developed by the same electronics team15 years ago.
Monode has remained a competitively priced and totally reliable
supplier to this organisation since 1978. It has not failed to deliver
in almost 40 years.
Having worked together for such a long period
of time, Monode has become a knowledge bank of named products. Although
this inherent knowledge helps to fast-track the aforementioned product
updates, Monode has also been responsible for helping to develop the
client’s IP and products, which set new, unsurpassed standards in
Even though the client has a mass-manufacturing facility in
China, it does not rival Monode’s cost-effective, precise circuitry
assembly services and its ability to profitably supply small and
If there’s an urgent requirement, Monode can be on-site with the
customer the next day – without the timeconsuming inconvenience and
expense of travelling by air.
“It’s a feather in our cap to work alongside such a successful
brand which has become known for remaining at the forefront of its
industry, winning awards and, most importantly, the durability and
reliability of its electronic products. It’s an honour to help develop
its products – after all, there are not many technology brands which
launch new products that remain in use for almost 15 years,” commented
Mike Vince, director and co-founder of Monode.
