Our Engineering Staff From Left to Right: Tim Dow, Manufacturing Engineer, Jimmy Kendall, Design Engineer and Clay Lennartz, VP of Engineering

There are plenty of reasons for working within close proximity to your customers. Easy accessibility allows for quick, efficient, and effective customer/ vendor interactions. Delivery options become same day and communication/ resolutions become accelerated when you have the convenience of quick in-person meetings. When you work in manufacturing and are dealing with tangible components, these trips become a routine occurrence and allows for speedier interactions and in turn quicker product time to market. In the precision manufacturing space that Excell Solutions has positioned itself, our close proximity to customers also allows for open communication lines when it comes to DFM or Engineering Support.

What is DFM or Engineering support? DFM which stands for design for manufacturing (or manufacturability) is a way for manufacturing companies to work with customers to design a product that not only eases cost but also allows for the manufacturing company to produce parts at a much more rapid pace through the utilization of less resources and cycle times. This usually occurs in the early stages of a project and helps identify areas of challenge that might affect the production build.

After all, who better to help assist in design than the people who will actually be making the parts!?

Here at Excell, our goal is to assist your engineering team and never to replace them. The success of a customer/ vendor DFM project relies heavily on the advice, input, and support of both teams. Don’t worry we will give you all the credit, when it comes to a finished product, leaving your management and accounting teams in AWE!

Meet our engineering team that will be working to assist you in future projects:

Clay Lennartz, VP of Engineering: Clay who acquired his BSME degree from UMass Amherst now has over 30 years of real-world experience in the mechanical engineering space. His knowledge spans well outside the boundaries and capabilities of our shop, making him the perfect person to break down and diagnose areas of concern with all sized projects in any industry.

Jimmy Kendall, Design Engineer: Jimmy received his BSME from UMass Dartmouth in 2017 and will be finishing up his masters degree in Mechanical Engineering at UMass Lowell in the next year. Jimmy has been with the company since 2017 and in that time, there aren’t many things he hasn’t seen, materials he hasn’t dealt with and projects that he hasn’t conquered. As of today, Jimmy is working closely with an autonomous drone company that is working to build a large drone capable of supporting and transporting up to two people.

Tim Dow Manufacturing Engineer: Tim, who also received his degree from the University of Massachusetts (Lowell) and has been with Excell since 2014. Tim has well over 30 years of real-world experience in the field. Tim plays a pivotal role when it comes to breaking down projects and identifying flaws within a design or assembly.

Scott Valley and Frank Tran
American Science and Engineering Inc.
{Over the last two months, American Science and Engineering has had several programs that required very quick turnaround on many parts. Excell Solutions went above and beyond what we would normally expect from a supplier to ensure our new product development success. Many of these parts were delivered the same day, with most of the more complex parts delivered within a week. It is because your dedication and willingness to do the impossible that we are able to stay on schedule and meet the demanding timelines that we are tasked with. Everyone at American Science and Engineering appreciates your efforts.
{I want to say THANK YOU so very much that just doesn’t express the gratitude I want to convey to you and your team over the past few months. I know since coming on board with Dakota Systems things have been less than easy, shall I say. As you were working over the holiday weekend, my customers as well as myself were also working to get the tools fabricated for test. The work that your team has accomplished in an outstanding & amazing feat. My customer is extremely pleased with your work and more importantly grateful for the time and effort you have put in to launch these 2 systems.

{I just want to say thanks to you, Steve and the great crew at Excell Solutions for your help this past weekend. The turnaround from receiving the PO at 1:33 on Friday and having parts machined and plated in my office at 1:33 on Monday was remarkable. It is a great feeling to know that I can count on a first class organization to pull it all together and have a “does whatever it takes” attitude to help out a customer when all seems hopeless. That level of service is what makes companies like Excell Solutions world class and keeps customers coming back. Again, thanks to the Excell Crew for a job well done.
{I wanted to take a moment and thank you for your help during our startup phase. We have learned heavily on you and your team and you have not disappointed us even on the request that were, frankly, not planned. You have allowed us to be opportunistic and that is what counts when you are a small fish in a big pond. In two weeks we have our big showing and we could not have ready without your services. Please let your team know that we appreciate their efforts, and we look forward to a long prosperous relationship.
Marc Stiller
Terrafugia, Inc.
{I wanted to take this opportunity to specifically call attention to the incredible level of support and customer service that has been provided to Terrafugia over the past 12-18 months and to thank you and the employees of Excell Solutions, and most notably George Kendall. I truly cannot say enough good things regarding the level of customer supports that gas been provided to us by George and all of the employees of Excell Solutions. Thank you again

The team at Excell is extremely professional, timely with quoting, accurate with delivery date estimates and cost competitive. Lead times have been very favorable and the team is able to do both small scale and large scale work with equal quality. They go the extra mile to ensure tight timelines can be met, and also are flexible through NPI prototyping and the changes that can occur in that phase of a design.

Vecna Robotics has been working with Excell for nearly seven years, and they provide exceptional hands-on customer service. I've experienced several occasions where we were line-down and needed material in-house ASAP. Brett and his team were able to bestow an "all-hand-on-deck" approach and pull in lead times. The efforts allowed us to ship our product to customers on schedule. Excell's meticulous quality of work and unprecedented service is why they are one of our few longest-standing suppliers to date.
