Peter Colmbijn selected Alligator Plastics as a partner for the development of a protective cap for a medical oxygen cylinder from Air Liquide, one of Biesheuvel Techniek's customers. Air Liquide is an international company specializing in the manufacture and supply of industrial and medical gases.
Because the oxygen cylinders are used in hospitals and ambulances, the protective cap had to meet high quality standards,’ says Peter Colmbijn. Medical personnel must be able to see at a glance whether the oxygen cylinder has already been used. In addition, it must be easy to remove the seal quickly. Alligator Plastics collaborated well with the customer during development and used its expertise to arrive at a good solution. The transparent approach and short lines of communication at Alligator Plastics resulted in pleasant cooperation with all parties involved.
Alligator Plastics handled the product development and is now responsible for the production and delivery direct to Air Liquide's end customer. Based on a forecast, Alligator Plastics maintains a strategic stock so short delivery times are guaranteed. ‘What appeals to me in the collaboration is the openness of the company,’ says Peter Colmbijn. ‘They are good people to work with, and everyone in the company is willing to talk to you, from the director to the production staff. For me, this case has been a great jumping-off point for future projects.’
