Engineering

It’s critical that the design intent be conveyed to the engineering when developing a product. Therefore, our Creative team works closely with the individual or individuals working to create the construction drawings.

04

Prototyping We believe strongly that a prototype must be a true representation of what the production piece would be like, so, we produce all of our prototypes in China using the same exact

techniques and machinery that would be used for production. We work to eliminate engineering issues during this process so that when it goes to production, there are no surprises.

Production

PN has high QC standards. We have dedicated line management that works off of control samples and manage the line team throughout the entire production process. Owning our own manufacturing facility is important to us. You could call us control freaks. We don’t and won’t relinquish control of the

steps needed to take a project from concept to a production piece. Quality control is critical to us and projects are monitored every step of the way from the receipt of raw materials through production. This ensures that nothing is packed and shipped without being carefully reviewed.


06

Logistics & Fulfillment

We manage the shipping and fulfilment needs for our clients on a case by case basis. No two clients are the exact same in regard to their needs here. We can warehouse product, ship to our clients’ warehouses, deliver to a

freight forwarder, drop ship around the world, warehouse product for pick and pack at a client’s request, provide inventory reports with minimums and maximums for par (if an ongoing program) and so much more.


07

Installation PN provides on-site consultation for store set-up and fixture implementation. Our knowledgeable team can assist with store set up and installation to ensure that everything is correct.

ECO & SAFETY


Ecological responsibility was at the cornerstone of our building the new facility.

Ecological responsibility was at the cornerstone of our building the new facility. We have Improved ventilation and cooling systems in workshops, which brings in fresh air to our workshops cooling the air for worker comfort. We have ventilation directly over all Glue stations and carbon air scrubbers for Paint Booths, which reduces VOC emissions into the air. Ionized water dust suppression systems collect

dust produced by sanding painted goods, and ensures that paint dust is not released into the environment. We have variable frequency dust collection systems for wood shops and all dust is captured and recycled. We have “Variable frequency� energy conservation throughout the manufacturing spaces, which allows us to adjust the energy consumption based on the number of machines running at any given time. Our on-

site waste water treatment center is a multi-stage filtration system designed to remove contaminates from waste water. The final filtration is through live kelp. Then and only then is our waste water picked up by an authorized governmental agency for additional treatment.

offer daycare for children and bus them to and from school. We offer basketball and badminton courts, computer lab, a library and continue to add amenities for our workers. We’re proud of a return rate after Chinese New Year of between 93 and 99% every year.
