Annual Retainers

Annual retainer programs allow the client to receive many Fleck Research services as part of the retainer contract. This gives a significant savings over purchasing individual services. Reports, alerts, newsletters, on-site consulting, data and telephone inquires can be included. Contracts may be standard services or customized to the specific needs of the client.

Consulting

Consulting services are available and can be arranged at the client's facility. Topics covered may include business, technology, path-to-market, strategic opportunities, competitive assessment and product lines, among other business issues.

Strategic Business Plans

Fleck Research offers clients strategic business plan support and assistance, including short-term strategic plans (next one-three years, based on existing mission and capitalizing on existing strengths), as well as long-term strategic plans (five years and beyond, to overcome weaknesses for maximizing sales revenues and profitability).

Technology

With over 100 technological trends now impacting suppliers of connectors, cable assemblies and backplanes, Fleck Research monitors each of these technologies and advises clients on these trends and their impact upon the design, application and usage of interconnect products.

Market Research

Fleck Research conducts industry market research, as well as proprietary research programs, covering the industry's 700+ product lines, markets in all countries and regions of the world, as well as research on the industry's 2,000 suppliers. Over 100 research reports are published each year.

Mergers and Acquisitions

The firm matches buyers and sellers on a confidential basis. For those who wish to avoid public auctions, as well as avoid disruption of customers and employees, discreet introductions can be made. Click HERE for more info.

Manufacturing Processes

Fleck Research has the expertise to perform audits of manufacturing processes (primary and secondary operations, precision stamp and die, machining, molding, plating and assembly) for those clients who wish comparisons of their manufacturing processes to others or to the industry norms. This expertise also extends to printed wiring boards, the leading cost element of backplanes.

Distribution
