The Business Need

When the in-house engineering team at Equalizer need design and engineering support, project management resource, prototyping or a fresh perspective on their new product development program, they come to 4c Design.

Our Activities and Deliverables

Through our long-standing partnership, we have assisted in the development of a range of new patented products, including Equalizer’s best selling Zero Gap product line, their Flange Closing Tool and their recently launched Flange Alignment Tool.

The Result

The Zero-Gap was first introduced in 2007 and being the first of its kind this product range has carved its own market. In 4 years Equalizer have sold over 400 Zero-Gap tools thus adding a completely new revenue stream to their business. This proved to be a very strong return on the design investment made by Equalizer when they chose to work with 4c.
