DRAPER, Utah, Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Flexpoint Sensor Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: FLXT) today disclosed details about its on-site production capacity ahead of sizeable production orders expected during the next few months. With all current resources fully engaged, Flexpoint is capable of producing approximately 28 million sensors annually. It should be noted that production capacity varies depending on the size, shape, and certain other characteristics of the sensor required by the application. These numbers were calculated on the basis of standard business conditions, consisting of one eight hour shift, five day work weeks, and holiday breaks. Sensor output can be increased significantly by adding workers or adding additional shifts. Flexpoint also has the ability to relatively easily add an additional production line which also would significantly increase production capacity.
Plans are in place to contract additional manufacturing capacity to supply any sensor volume beyond what Flexpoint can produce on-site. Combined, these resources are more than sufficient to meet foreseeable demands from current clients. While some of the production for our sensors may be outsourced, Flexpoint will produce the majority of its sensors for its various clients.
"We often have clients and investors inquire about our manufacturing capacity and whether we can meet the demands of the marketplace when we receive larger orders," said Flexpoint CEO Clark Mower. "While there is some variability based the different types of sensors we are producing, we can currently manufacture 2-3 million sensors per month. This is based on what we have produced historically and should illustrate the ease with which we can meet the growing demand for our sensors and the orders we anticipate for next year. We can more than double our production capacity quickly by adding addition shifts, lines and workers. We are well equipped to meet the needs of our clients."
