LX Design House brings manufacturing in-house


LX is a custom electronics design company specialising in the design of embedded systems and wireless technologies. LX offers clients a professional turnkey experience, with services designed to take a new product from idea through to production. Since the company was founded in 2006, LX has worked on over 100 diverse projects developing products such as cloud-based technologies, GPS tracking devices, emergency alert systems and more.

In the last 12 months LX began driving an initiative to develop in-house manufacturing capability. Its core business is in prototyping and product development, which can involve manufacturing runs of a few thousand units for testing and certification. Offshore manufacturing can add shipping constraints as the average turn around for such a production run is 8-12 weeks – a significant period in the world of rapid product development. LX new initiative is aimed at significantly decreasing this, as the development of a small-scale onshore manufacturing system could significantly cut both time and costs for projects.

LX Design House has been recognised as an ABA100 Winner of The Australian Business Award 2014 for Enterprise. The initiative has now been in operation for just under a year and LX has successfully achieved their goal of decreasing time spent in rapid prototyping and testing.
