For its production of Head up Displays (HUDs) for one of the OEMs in the Czech Republic, Panasonic needed to increase cleanroom capacity.
The HUDs work by projecting critical information such as sat nav instructions on the windscreen of cars, reducing the need for a driver to divert their attention from the road. As an optical product, it is important to control contamination to avoid defects on the electronic parts and on the device itself, so the units are cleanroom assembled.
With an established relationship supplying consumables to their existing cleanroom housing 200 operatives, Panasonic knew C2C’s reputation for quality. When the time came for them to increase cleanroom capacity, C2C were approached.
We delivered an ISO Class 8 softwall cleanroom that, due to the sensitive nature of the products, had ESD protection built in.
Panasonic had tight time-scales so there was no room for project creep. C2C successfully delivered the project in under 7 weeks, meeting Panasonic’s needs and even finishing the install ahead of schedule.
Panasonic commented that the communication between the account management, project planning and installation teams was excellent and the good organisation was a key factor in the successful on-time project delivery.
Coming from automotive manufacturing where perfection is naturally demanded, I look to establish long term relationships with global partners. It was not a supplier / customer relationship between Panasonic and Connect 2 Cleanrooms - it was like 1 team. A perfect match!
