Many of our vendors and customers have commented that Bixby is the only company in the industry that offers the combination of R&D expertise, fast flexible prototyping, as well as scale-up and manufacturing expertise that we provide. While there are many extrusion companies that have lab lines, few are willing to allocate production time and equipment to development in the same way that Bixby does. Additionally, most extruders focus on specific polymer conversions which means they are limited as to which vendors they can or will work with. This is not the case with Bixby.
Bixby’s process flexibility is unparalleled in the industry and, as a result, we have the capability to work with more thermoplastics than any of our competitors.
Bixby’s Vendor Program was established with one purpose in mind – to help our highly valued vendors drive their revenue stream. Our vendors provide us with valuable feedback that we use to continually improve the way we do business, and we strive to establish and maintain strong relationships and productive technical exchanges with them. As a result, Bixby and its vendors build upon our businesses together as we help our vendors move their programs forward – the result is a mutually beneficial relationship for us and our vendors.
To assist vendors in securing new applications in film, sheet or laminate form, Bixby provides timely, flexible, and proven prototyping capabilities. Bixby can decrease the time to launch, while our experience and expertise also serves to increase the probability of success – as a result, we help drive substantial growth in sales revenue for vendors. And because there are many occasions when our threshold to resource a project is much lower than our vendors, we can conduct much of the work that’s required behind the scenes before a larger resource commitment is need from the vendor partner.
This not only helps our vendors get new applications and projects to the next stage of development quickly, but it provides them with a clearer pathway to success.
