Today we’d like to introduce you to Beran Peter.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Beran. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
At Associated Environmental Systems, we geek-out on our environmental chambers. We live for the next customer product to work with and to design solutions that will get them there faster. We are passionate about customers’ products being better and our customers’ experiences being easier. Our chambers are about simplicity from the door handle all the way to the user interface.
Whether we manufacture standard or custom chambers, or service chambers of any brand, it is our customers’ needs that come first. AES has always, and continues to be known as the chamber company that is easy to work with. Customers deal directly with us, the original equipment manufacturer, where many of our competitors use third-party resellers. We are nimble and responsive often delivering a quote within days while our competitors may take 1-2 weeks to respond. Our culture is fun and that translates into being easy to work with and allows open lines of communication with customers — if our customer, typically an engineer, wants to talk to our engineering department to develop a solution or troubleshoot an environmental condition, then we make that happen.
In today’s global economy, customers want their testing departments running continuously. This can be through Research and Development departments running iterative tests, or it could be a production engineer running test samples off a line that runs three shifts non-stop. Today’s engineers need easy access to the data a chamber generates. Traditionally, this was accomplished on paper. But Associated Environmental Systems has brought chambers into the digital age. Today, we have technology that allows companies to safely manage their data via the Internet of Things. Engineers can access their test chambers from anywhere in the building or anywhere in the world.
Has it been a smooth road?
Because we start with sheet metal and build our chambers from scratch the manufacturing process is complex. As we have grown our systems have increased in complexity. Today, we are in our fifth year continuing Lean Manufacturing on the shop floor. This has improved the flow and communication in all the departments and across the cells. Now, it is common for our manufacturing team to notice abnormalities in the process and make constructive recommendations to improve manufacturing throughout the production cycle. Lean improvements have allowed us to become more flexible and work as a team with extremely low rework, shorter lead times and has allowed us to get quotes out to customers within 24 hours.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
At AES, we manufacture chambers that create a controlled environment inside that simulates the weather conditions found in nature. We do this by making steel or plexiglass chambers allowing our customers to control the weather in a box. We are known for our customer service and our ability to meet tight production timelines. We are proud to be able to openly communicate with customers to create chambers that specifically meet their need to build high quality, reliable products.
Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Being in Boston and the Bay Area of San Francisco has been fantastic for us. Our primary competitors are located in the Michigan. The two locations allow us to keep up with technological changes across many industries. We apply new and innovative thinking to how we build environmental test chambers. Boston and Silicon Valley are the technology innovation hubs of the world today, and we have deployed technology in ways our competitors have not considered. The technologies supporting Cloud computing have been implemented by us to support our data management solution.
