DVIRC Provides Business Solutions to Meet EFE’s Strategic Objectives

Industrial Resource Center: DVIRC

Founded more than 50 years ago, EFE Laboratories, Inc. is one of the region’s oldest continually operating contract manufacturers.  The privately owned enterprise encompasses engineering, design, and manufacturing operations within its single Horsham, Pennsylvania facility.  Primary offerings include box builds, printed circuit assemblies, control panels, cable harnesses, and capital equipment assembly for the Aerospace, Automotive, Chemical, Electrical, and other demanding industries.

“We have clearly benefited from our alignment with DVIRC.

As a trusted resource in our strategic planning process, DVIRC has kept us focused and unified toward a common set of goals. Their lead generation program has supported our business development efforts in new and existing markets, and working together to build our brand and online presence has helped us appeal to a much wider base.

From top line to bottom line, they have a positive impact. The services we engaged in have certainly contributed to EFE’s success.”

Situation

EFE Labs’ President, Kip Anthony, had direct experience with the MEP network as a result of successful projects carried out by the North Carolina Manufacturing Extension Partnership.  As the need arose for various strategic planning and marketing projects, Kip looked to DVIRC.

Solution

DVIRC drew from both in-house and third-party resources to deliver a broad range of services to EFE: strategic planning, primary and secondary market research, lead generation, branding initiatives, a new website, sales and innovation support, public relations, and more.

Results

  • Lead generation program put EFE in front of hundreds of prospects and supported business development efforts in new and existing markets;
  • Collaboratively built the EFE brand and enhanced its online presence to appeal to a wider customer base;
  • PR efforts created broader awareness, including recognition in the “Philadelphia 100”; and
  • “They’ve taken us from a company with almost no marketing wherewithal to one that’s very competent in terms of marketing.  From top line to bottom line, they have a positive impact.”
