OCM Manufacturing and NorthBridge Technology Announce Strategic Partnership

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada – v. The two Ottawa-area companies will collaborate on the design and manufacture of new electronics products for customers. 

NorthBridge is known for its strong electronics design capabilities and OCM Manufacturing has an equally impressive track record bringing low- to mid-volume electronics products into reality as finished boards and systems. 

Today’s announcement formalizes their commitment to provide customers with a seamless option for the outsourcing of electronics design, manufacturing and supply chain management. The partnership will build upon past successes with customers in the communication, industrial and commercial electronics sectors. 

Andrew Goodwin, President of NorthBridge, said: “By working closely with OCM Manufacturing we can offer a true one-stop shopping experience for customers who wish to bring their ideas for electronics products to life without the overhead of hiring design engineers or bringing manufacturing assets in-house.” 

Kenneth Roots, responsible for business development, new markets, at OCM Manufacturing, added: “Our partnership with Northbridge is attractive to small OEMs who can benefit from true turnkey outsourcing, as well as to larger customers who wish to offload non-core development projects. Our excellent working relationship with Northbridge will guarantee a seamless experience for the end customer.” 

One of the most valuable benefits that the partnership offers to customers is tight integration between design and manufacturing. By ensuring that product designs are optimized for manufacturing, OCM and NorthBridge can deliver products with shorter lead times and lower labour costs.
