Testing and Quality Assurance

Sussex is committed to the quality and efficiency of every product we create – that’s why our in-house automation team operates with a proactive approach where every automated process is thoroughly tested and optimized before it enters full-scale production. We leverage technologies such as advanced vision systems to identify any inefficiencies or areas of improvement early in the process.

With Sussex, you don’t have to rely on outsourcing, where the absence of in-house testing and customization can limit the adaptability process and potentially result in unforeseen challenges during production. Because we control the process from start to finish, we can make any necessary changes pre-production to ensure a successful outcome. When you choose Sussex, you have the confidence that your automation solution has been rigorously vetted and refined for the most efficient and reliable result.

That’s why we go beyond just offering advanced automation solutions – we provide the measures and comprehensive training needed to seamlessly integrate automation with the expertise and technical skills of our operators and technicians. This approach to automation means our team is not only equipped with the know-how to navigate the technology, but also empowered to harness its full potential. As a result, we enhance production lines while cultivating a culture of innovation and expertise. With Sussex, embracing the future means embracing technology alongside the skilled teams that drive it forward.
