Innovative Contract Product Development Company Celebrates 25 Years of Rising Success

Vancouver, BC - KLN KLEIN Product Development Inc. of Langley, BC is celebrating its 25th year of successfully serving the high-tech industry in Vancouver and North America. Working as "Product Innovators on Call," KLN KLEIN has assisted over 130 clients, in more than 30 different industries, materialize their vision of creating new technology products or to drastically improve existing ones. With its distinct and unique multi-disciplinary approach, the company offers all-encompassing contract design engineering, prototyping, and manufacturing services under one roof.

Founded in 1981, KLN KLEIN evolved from an exclusively electronic and software engineering firm to a one-stop electro-mechanical product development centre with its own, fully integrated engineering and manufacturing facilities. "Apart from designing and building top performing products," explains Peter Klein, President of KLN KLEIN, "it is our mandate to give clients the utmost convenience possible. We make it our business to offer in-house a seamless array of highly professional technical services - from conceptual design to ready-to-ship-and-use product." He adds, "The engineering department, where creativity and deep technical knowledge leads to innovative design solutions, is just a flight of stairs away from the electronic division, the machine shop, and the assembly area, where the designs materialize into complete electro-mechanical products, ready to ship and use. There is no shorter way from concept to finished product!"

This singular blend of multi-disciplinary expertise and resources has allowed KLN KLEIN to not only develop and manufacture complex products in a few months, but also to provide critical solutions in a matter of days, to address clients' emergencies. For example, a helicopter-vibration-isolation-platform for a survey computer was designed and built for AVCAN Systems Inc. of Vancouver in only five days, to assist AVCAN in fulfilling a critical, time-sensitive flying mission. "You and your team's abilities never ceased to amaze us whenever a new [technical] challenge was encountered... We are indeed fortunate to have engaged the services of KLN KLEIN Product Development Inc.", wrote John Sutherland, President and C.E.O. of AVCAN in a thank you letter.

Other innovations developed and manufactured by KLN KLEIN for and with different clients include a state-of-the-art, low cost 3D-image acquisition system for the orthotics industry; the first North American full-featured parking meter that accepted credit card payments; a programmable ticket printer for bus transfers in Los Angeles; a variety of electronic docking stations for hand-held warehouse scanners that provide secure mounting on forklifts and automatically recharge the scanners' batteries; the world's first chemical analyzer to automatically and simultaneously measure Chlorine and Chlorine Dioxide in liquids and gases; various precision measurement instruments like a lumber profiler and a saw-tooth inspector for quality control in the lumber industry, and numerous other challenging and frontier-breaking projects, which remain under confidentiality at the moment.

"What makes KLN KLEIN so unique and valuable to us," says Bob Rompre, Marketing Manager for International Data Systems Ltd., "is not only their professionalism and wide expertise in the electro-mechanical engineering field, but the fact that we walk in with an idea and, a few months or even just weeks later, walk out with the ready-to-ship and use product. They really are an extremely convenient and highly professional product development centre and have been assisting us continuously for many years. With their help we have achieved numerous innovation goals, giving us a clear competitive edge in our field."
