Undercounter laboratory refrigerator


A US based, thermoelectric technology company approached Globex to help them develop world class solid-state thermoelectric medical fridge. They are the experts when  it comes to thermoelectric based cooling technology and Globex has vast experience in developing all manner of product including appliances for the mass production environment. Globex worked with the US engineers and was responsible for developing and designing all mechanical components of the fridge and also planning out the most efficient way of building this in relatively small runs when compared to traditional large scale production volumes. Smart design and a focused approach allowed for a minimum number of large tooling investments and also cut down on the development and production readiness time.  Globex had completed the project in 8 months of total development.

We have long standing experience in the mass production of products and know how to design for high volumes and what considerations are required with tooling, jigs and fixtures.

Our vast network of partners and global suppliers allows us to pair the client with the right partner for their project.
