Unitec, Inc is proud to announce that after 15 wonderful years in our current facility, we are MOVING! No need to fret we are not going far…not far at all. We will continue to be in our convenient and lively location of downtown Middletown. We are moving from Court Street to the corner of Main and College Street, which is a nice stroll of one block away. Our new address is 203 Main Street, Middletown CT on the second floor, right above Thai Garden.
Although we love our current office and have made it our home away from home, we are excited for this change in hopes to make our clients’ experience even more enjoyable. Our new facility will be bigger to accommodate our visitors more comfortably and will not include the steepest stairs known to man. We are happy to say that all our clients have made it up and down our current stairs safely; not all of us at Unitec can say the same.
Our move will be complete at the end of March and we’ll be fully functional in the new facility on April 10th. Stay tuned for next month’s newsletter for details about our Open House!
Featured Product: PCB and Electrical
SOLDWORKS PCB is a new product that was introduced this year! It is focused on bringing the best of both worlds together. Do what you do best in SOLIDWORKS CAD, and let SOLIDWORKS PCB handle all of your PCB design needs which was engineered specifically for SOLIDWORKS collaboration. We’ve combined the best technology in PCB design with an easy-to-use interface and linked it with SOLIDWORKS CAD to give you an efficient design experience that gets your PCBs done quickly and easily — just what you need when PCBs are only a part of your product design workflow.
Increasingly products have embedded electrical content, including power systems, user controls, complex wiring, and harnesses. SOLIDWORKS Electrical simplifies electrical system design with its intelligent design tools, comprehensive parts database, and real-time integration of your 2D schematics and 3D models. The simple, intuitive design makes both electrical and mechanical engineers more productive, enabling increased collaboration and integrated Bills of Materials (BOMs) and project data. The results are fewer mistakes and complications, for faster time-to-market.
Client Success Story
Influence, regardless of how small it may seem, may cause a large change to someone’s life. Impacts could be obvious like being a celebrity and shaping the news of the world. Or it could be subtle, where you may be saving someone’s life but the identity of their hero is unknown – and not all superheroes wear capes.
The people of Sequel Special Products are the perfect example of making a difference in people’s lives daily without the acknowledgement of the individual’s they are supporting. These heroes have been improving people’s health for many generations.
It all started with the founder of Thomaston Special Tool, Frank DeBisschop. He was a tool maker and an inventor. With his innovative ideas, DeBisschop and his four sons created revolutionary tools and dies as well as fabricated stamped components and small assemblies.
In 1967, Torrington Company acquired Thomaston Special Tool which quickly became a key resource to major medical device companies, such as Johnson & Johnson and US Surgical Corporation. Scott DeBisschop, Frank’s youngest son, managed the medical device business for the Torrington Company.
In 1994, The Torrington Company decided to exit the medical business and concentrate on its core bearing business. Scott acquired this piece of business from the Torrington Co. and called his new company “Sequel” Special Products. This was a new medical device company, named as the “second coming” of medical manufacturing and design work within the DeBisschop family.
Sequel Special Products has a variety of medical devices that they manufacture and / or design. Sequel’s clients range from the leading medical corporations to start-ups looking to make their ideas into reality. Sequel Special Products and Sequel Medical Design make up Sequel Medical for a OneSourceSolution℠ for their clients.
One of the most popular medical devices Sequel Special Products manufactures is the Stretta hand held therapy device. This is one of the many products that is part of the OneSourceSolution℠. This is a device that is an alternative to harmful drugs and risky surgeries for people with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Stretta has a long catheter that is inserted through the mouth during a short ninety-minute procedure.
Stretta is one of many products manufactured by Sequel Special Products at their facility in Wolcott, CT. The owners of the company say that the most rewarding part of the job is helping create products for the medical industry that ultimately improve people’s lives through innovation and technology. – spoken like true hero’s.
