Impact Products Open Cutting-Edge Product Development & Testing Facility
HONG KONG, December 15, 2021 – Impact Products Ltd. announced today the grand opening of its state-of-the-art product development and testing facility known as “Impact Labs.” The facility is the first of its kind in the direct-response television industry and sets a new standard for sourcing and supply firms, which have typically outsourced these functions to mainland factories.
Housed in a dedicated space in downtown Kowloon, Impact Labs is staffed by an experienced team of engineers and other product scientists. It features several cutting-edge testing rooms, including a fire room and water room, as well as advanced design tools such as 3D printing equipment.
“Our drive to evolve, improve and grow is what led us to invest in a lab tailored to the needs of our clients.,” said Bill Quarless, founder and director of Impact Products. “By adding these capabilities and bringing them in-house, we became more efficient and effective and much less reliant on outside factories and other companies for development and testing.”
Other Impact Labs capabilities include a temperature chamber for life-testing products and simulating various extreme conditions in temperature and humidity, Quarless said. In addition, the new facility has many high-tech machines such as electronic microscopes, a sphere-spectroradiometer device and thermal-imaging cameras. “There’s even an archery range for high-impact and projectile testing,” he added.
