At C&A Group, we believe that thoughtful and collaborative planning aligned with purposeful execution will lead to success. The Engineering & design of our projects and development of our products always starts with a technical analysis of the problem and there is nobody better to lead this than our team of engineers and designers based in Lethbridge, AB. C&A Group is proud to offer the expert value added services of our engineering and design to our projects and products.
Design Performance & Quality
At C&A Group we are driven to perform to meet our customer’s expectations and demand the highest quality of our products and services. Leading the quality of our projects and products is our engineering and design team in Lethbridge. With the utilization of our internal quality and design processes, tools, software, and combined team expertise we provide an unmatched engineering and manufacturing service in Lethbridge, AB. We, at C&A Group, leave no stone unturned in making the design process complete. This starts with thorough preliminary design inputs, review meetings, data collection and analysis. As the design progresses, we have multiple quality checks and milestones for customer and project team input, review, and feedback including FMEA, site dimension confirmations, and design validation checks including third-party engineering certifications and review.
To further support performance and quality our engineering and design team is constantly exploring new technologies to improve our processes, develop our knowledge, and provide greater value to our customers. We have integrated 3D Laser Scanning Technology into our data collection and analysis process to ensure quality and accuracy of the information we are working with to dramatically reduce fitment errors encountered in the shop or on site. We utilize large scale scanners such as the Leica RTC360 for large 3D point cloud models, or the Creaform GoScan! For small to medium surface model scans necessary for reverse engineering components or systems.
