We will help you with product development and we have expertise in mechanics, electronics, textile, wood, plastic, printing and design.
100% Customer Focus
We have deliberately chosen to offer a broad set of general skills, in order to be unbiased and completely customer focused. All our suppliers have special expertise in their area, and are involved as early as the development phase. Often, so are our customers own or external designers.
We know that the best solutions are made in collaborations and our objective is to ensure that they are finished and delivered in time for the right price.
The tools we use are SolidWorks as 3D CAD and PDM system, and Adobe Creative Suite for graphic production.
Initially a new product is made in a limited edition to ensure that it meets all requirements.
Before the start of a serial production, we produce prototypes. The purpose of the prototype is to ensure that the product has the expected properties. It’s easier to evaluate the appearance, durability, functionality and the feel of a prototype rather than looking at a model or just by looking at the screen. If the prototype shows that we need to revaluate the product, we make a new prototype.
Typical of prototypes is that they sometimes are produced by a different production technique but with the right materials and the right scale.
When possible, we also use 3D-printing to verify the appearance and function.
We aim for an overall service level that meets your requirements, price, flexibility and delivery time and at the same time keeping capital tied up in inventory low.
We offer manufacturing with several alternative service levels. The goal is to offer a good overall service level that meets your demands for flexibility and delivery time while capital tied up in inventory is kept low. This is made possible by having finished and semi-finished products and keeping buffer stock of raw materials and components.
We select our suppliers with care
Most of our components are manufactured by subcontractors, specialist in their field. We carefully choose partners, ensuring both quality and environmental issues such as ethics and working conditions. The suppliers are mostly located in our region and around our facility near Poznan in Poland. We also buy a lot of components in Asia and favor Indonesia, which we believe is an exciting country with good opportunities to find suppliers with acceptable ethical and environmental conditions.
It’s just in us and we’ll gladly take it all the way to your customer.
Brigo has a stable yet flexible platform to manage packages and freight as well as mailings and market adjustments. Our systems are integrated with several carriers, currently, TNT, DHL, Schenker and UPS, and we ship daily freight and parcels worldwide.
To let us take care of the logistics comes with several advantages. We have freight insurance to cover the freight we are responsible for. And all the goods are monitored until delivery. You also get access to our freight agreement, which gives you good prices on freight rates.
A sometimes forgotten aspect of delivering products is the need for support, spare parts and even updates.
You easily order spare parts through our customer portal, where we create separate domains for each customer. Each domain can be individually graphically altered and for many customers, we have created individual “skins”.
Support is taken care of through email and the portal. The support function can be open or require login, by choice.
Our system manages conceptual changes as well as administers updates all the way out to your dealers. The system is built on a subscription that is activated based on what is delivered. Based on this subscription, proposals are made for orders of materials needed for the concept to be current.
Directly connected to our business, you get access to product line-up, inventory, order history and delivery status online.
Our customer portal is directly connected to our business. When logged in, our customers can see the products, inventory, order history and delivery status. They can also add and manage users, delivery addresses and subsidiaries that also may order materials.
We’ve also published product configurations, quotation functions and delivery time-estimators. These features, are easily made in order to facilitate the communication and cooperation with our customers and suppliers.
The same platform is also used for integration, for example, transfer of orders and stock status. We love IT when it’s used intuitively. We regard IT like any other machine investment, it should generate business and customer value.
As an automaker you are in need of solid demo- and marketing material. With our help do our customers, not only get access to correct and selling upholstery and auto color samples – we also ensure that the material immediately reaches the showrooms.
Brigo manufacture and supply color samples, upholstery samples, decor samples in form of binders, display materials and individual samples.
Typical for these production projects is that the logistics is global, the tempo is high, the amount of information is very large and it requires many market adjustments (both in terms of range deviations and language translations). The car industry changes its line several times a year, which requires an updated collection of retail materials.
Our services range from research and analysis of needs, design and layout, marketing, budgeting, procurement of raw materials, production, storage and distribution and billing.
Within a project, we often work directly with each country’s importer, with the support of the headquarters. We have systems to keep track of our dealers and their systems and samples. We can also analyze and predict which materials that may need to update when there are changes on the cars.
We handle all the customers through our portal, or other preferred ways, by phone or by email. Customers can manage their network themselves, buy products, parts, or change their subscription.
Surely, there are similar needs in other industries, and we have much to contribute in this area.
A large part of our turnover comes from manufacturing products that end up in offices and hotels. We manufacture screens, seats, sound-absorbing panels, pillows, puffs, larger beanbags, curtains and other textile products.
We punch, cut, sew and decorate, stuff, assemble, pack and deliver directly to end customers or our customers’ distribution centers. Production takes place in Poland starting from our own plant in Rostarzewo and with fantastic subcontractors in the area.
Worth mentioning is that we work a lot with Sunbrella fabrics and we make textile products suitable for outdoors or in environments exposed to UV light.
We usually work with our clients’ byproducts or indirect material. Materials that are customer-unique and are required, but that you can’t or don’t want to produce yourself. Proof that we’re good at what we do, is that we have a lot of production assignments for direct materials, ie materials that normally would be produced in-house but that you don’t have time for.
Our services in this area are:
Production and assembly
Delivery to warehouse or retail
Brigo is a service company that delivers customized products and concepts. The difference between Brigo and traditional suppliers is that Brigo always have product and customer focus. To us, the process and the materials are secondary. This allows Brigo to deliver broader product solutions that span over multiple technology areas and it also creates greater value and flexibility for our customers.
We are ISO 9001-certified
Our mission is to offer development, manufacturing and distribution of customized products. We offer this primarily to market-leading companies in Sweden operating internationally.
We work by an operating system in which all employees are constantly involved in improving.
Our mission statement is measured and evaluated regularly in a structured way in order to affect our working methods and procedures. This is how we steer our business towards our vision and our goals.
Brigo was founded after midsummer by Edward Andrén and Thomas Ingvast and the company was named MLS Marketing Logistics & Service AB. Our business mission was to offer manufacturing services and to be a process and material independent alternative to traditional purchasing channels. The advantage for customers, then as now, is that they can consolidate purchasing and outsource more responsibility and save money doing this.
The first “big” customer that accepted a business proposal was Saab Automobile in Trollhättan. We were entrusted to manufacture catalogs of paint and upholstery samples and deliver them to the central warehouse in Nyköping for further distribution to retailers throughout the world.
This was the evidence we needed to continue investing in ourselves.
The company moved from offices in Arendal to the Högsbo industrial area in Gothenburg. The space was more efficient with private storage and an assembly department.
A new companion was found, Adam Kliks, who worked with one of Volvo’s suppliers in Wolsztyn, Poland. A fast start-up of a subsidiary was made during the month of July and the first deliveries from its own production in Poland to Sweden went in August the same year. The company was named Ltez Sp. z r.o.
Time to move again. This time to our own real estate in Hisingen.
This year we decided to change our businesss system. We needed something better and more advanced, something that we could use as a tool box to build new smart flows, that could work online and also allow us to work more closely with suppliers and customers. We chose Jeeves, and that we have not regretted (more than a few times). Flexible, adaptable and open to self-development.
We kick off a marketing effort and realize that our company name has its problems. It is easily misinterpreted by phone, the domain on the Internet is not great (www.mlsab.com for those who remember). We spent a large amount of time and got help from very skilled people who came up with several suggestions for a new names that we could vote on.
Many struggled with Christmas crafts, especially Jasminka who created a model airplane kit in gingerbread dough. We give this to our customers throughout the world as a Christmas present and get lots of praise. We also get a bit of trouble, apparently it’s not OK to send the dough to all countries in the world … All good what ends good!
The year begins with selecting Brigo as the new company name. Which, by the way, was the very first suggestion that we received and rejected the previous fall.
We are ISO 14001-certified
