VETTE CORP. OFFERS CUSTOM COSMETICALLY FINISHED METAL PARTS
VOLUME, QUALITY & SUPPLY CHAIN SUPPORT POSITION VETTE AS GLOBAL SUPPLIER OF FACE
PLATES, ENCLOSURES & STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS FOR CONSUMER & INDUSTRIAL
Manchester, NH - May 11, 2005, - Vette Corp., a global provider of thermal management solutions,
announces the addition of cosmetically finished metal parts to its solutions for original equipment
manufacturers (OEMs). Vette Corp.'s cosmetic parts capabilities leverage the company's customer
support operations to work closely with customers early in product design, as well as Vette's extensive
China-based manufacturing operations. Cosmetically finished parts are custom designed components
that require high quality finishes - frequently polished, anodized, or coated - resulting in a part with a
surface free of blemishes, nicks or scratches. Examples of cosmetic parts include enclosures and
faceplates on high-end consumer electronics, personal computers, storage devices and
Increased Engineering Content & Manufacturing Complexity
A growing segment of cosmetic parts require extensive engineering as they provide electronic
shielding, thermal dissipation and even structural support in the final assembly.
According to Vette Corp. President George Dannecker, "It was a natural extension of our
product offerings as customers asked our engineers to integrate thermal solutions into their
product's enclosure. We realized as enclosures became part of the thermal solution that it was
only a matter of time before what had been exclusively cosmetic parts would need to support
product performance as well as aesthetic design requirements.
"In fact, as we incorporate more functionality into the cosmetic exterior of a product, we may
actually decrease the product's footprint. We work with our customers from early in the design
process and concurrently engineer for functionality, cost and manufacturability. At the same
time we are also developing tooling to maximize manufacturing efficiency. Then with design
validation and customer approval, our high-volume, high-quality manufacturing ramps up,
feeding the customers' global supply chains and meeting their critical delivery deadlines,"
