DHI offers numerous product development and commercialization services across several major areas.
You can “mix and match” these services to exactly suit your specific needs.
Technology Development and Product Testing
We take your ideas from “concept to commercialization.”
This is ideal for companies that may not have the expertise or resources to pursue market opportunities.
Product Development Projects can be simple or complex. Examples are:
- Scaling an existing technology to build and supply a different size to the market.
- Providing testing or ISO Product Qualification Testing to qualify a client’s product.
- Full ‘Stage Gate’ Product Development activities including conceptual design through full product development and qualification, complete with a design package at the end.
Technology Consultancy / Proof of Concept Development
Downhole Innovations brings immediate value to our clients by evaluating new concepts and ideas for products and technologies. DHI will work with the client to provide ‘proof of concept’ testing for new technology. Additionally, DHI will consult with the client and often bring alternative ideas to the client for consideration. This collaborative relationship provides the client with additional resource in the early stages of a product platform development program, allowing the client to capture the most from their technology.
Application Engineering / Special Order Support
This service is ideal for companies with internal design and development capabilities but lack the expertise in specific areas such as upper and lower well completion product design. Our DHI application-specific engineers serve as product experts without bias to either operators or service companies.
Quick Response Manufacturing / Low-cost Global Supply Chain
Developing a reliable supply chain for new products can be a company’s biggest challenge with a new product in a new market. Often small quantity and quick-response manufacturing is needed to penetrate new markets and new customers. DHI offers this service with every product developed.
Following the full commercialization of a product, DHI also provides several full supply chain support options such as Eastern and Western Hemisphere low-cost supply options. We’ve combined our domestic and overseas manufacturing resources with deep supply chain development experience to create a “supply chain in a box” concept. This concept uses proven methodology to quickly implement a supply chain for your particular need.
Intellectual Property Reviews
DHI’s in-house patent counsel reviews your intellectual property, advises a direction, and files patents on your behalf. When IP is developed as part of a product development contract, the IP stays with the client who has commissioned the project. This is an important and additional value that DHI delivers for its clients.
