Advanced manufacturing

The Brief

This European manufacturer of automotive suspension components tasked Intralink with licensing its advanced manufacturing process to a tier-1 supplier in Japan.

The Approach

Intralink engaged the leading suppliers of rubber and polymer suspension components in Japan while at the same time creating “pull” for the client's technology by talking to key influencers inside the Japanese carmakers. Within six months, Intralink had secured evaluation agreements with three potential licencees to test and validate our client’s technology.

The Outcome

The client successfully concluded an agreement to sell finished components to one of the three potential licensees, and later secured a license and supply agreement under which the Japanese company adopted the client’s advanced manufacturing system and purchased its unique microcellular polyurethane material.
