Gener8 is a full-service turnkey Design and Manufacturing Company with a focus on high complexity medical, biotech, and industrial products. Our unique blending of strong and complete engineering design services with a complete manufacturing services offers a strategic advantage to our customers in that our design is DFM, DFR, and DFC driven and our manufacturing is strongly supported by a strong engineering group Gener8’s engineering group is approximately 150 people. Gener8’s engineering is built to have all skill sets necessary for instrumentation development. This includes electrical, mechanical, optical, microfluidics, software and firmware engineering. Our team has deep experience with over 40 PhDs and a managerial team that is primarily comprised of executive level (primarily VPE and CEO level) veterans of successful start startups. Gener8’s operations group is comprised of approx. 140 people and has a focus on high mix manufacturing of complex electro-mechanical and electro-optical devices. Gener8 uses a partner model to provide a maximum of flexibility for high capital cost commoditized operations such as CNC and PnP. Gener8 has a team in China to support offshore manufacturing, primarily injection molding, but all assembly is done in California. Gener8 is currently certified to both ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 13485:2016 by bsi. We are licensed for medical device manufacturing by the FDB. We have a multi-tier approach to balance our QMS to the needs of each product.
