"In the midst of a successful composite manufacturing process development program with CSS we recognized the need to tap their creativity and technical background to a greater extent.   CSS has since made significant contributions to our manufacturing scale-up effort by providing plant design, manufacturing process optimization, and production equipment development services.   CSS is a valuable innovator and an important part of our team."

"We turned to CSS to develop an overseas source for a margin sensitive product 9 years ago.   CSS eased our quality concerns and exceeded our sourcing objectives with great attention to detail, responsiveness, and follow through. We're very pleased with the product to date.
CSS continues to serve as a reliable extension of our engineering and production departments.   We definitely plan to utilize more CSS services in the future."
