Portescap - 2022 in Review
It’s hard to believe that 2023 is right around the corner! With the end of the year quickly approaching, we’re spending a few moments reminiscing on some of our biggest wins of 2022. From re-entering the world of tradeshows to expanding our product portfolio, eStore, and market presence, 2022 was a year of innovation. Let’s recap the year’s successes below:
10 New Product Launches and Counting.
The teams at Portescap are constantly in motion, and this is perhaps nowhere more apparent than in the launch of our latest product developments. Sparked by customer feedback and driven by technical insights, these newest motion solutions are unique products that work to solve complex problems for critical applications while simultaneously acting as inspiration for future product advancements. Our dedication to innovation is taken even further by robust customization options, so no matter the solution you’re seeking, rest assured that it will be wholly tailored to your application’s unique requirements and specifications!
We’ve launched ten product launches in less than a year’s time, across a wide range of technologies and featuring an extensive variety of traits – and we plan to launch four more by year’s end. Explore all our newest products here.
Expansion into New Markets.
If you’re familiar with Portescap, you’ll know that we’re a leading miniature motor supplier for key medical and industrial applications, including surgical power tools, medical infusion systems, and industrial power tools. With that said, in 2022 we’ve prioritized extending our motion solutions into other markets that can benefit from our extensive expertise and focus on Engineer-to-Engineer collaboration. These include Aerospace and Defense; Robotics; and Cardiology. Want to learn more about our solutions for these industries? Reach out to us here!
Portescap eStore Development.
In the year and a half since its launch, the Portescap eStore has quickly become a go-to destination for sourcing miniature motor prototypes in the online space. Our ultimate goal when launching the eStore was twofold: firstly, to create a simple, streamlined, and consistent purchasing experience for engineers who need to quickly evaluate off-the-shelf mini motor samples; and secondly, to provide a starting point for those searching for a more customized motion solution for their application.
To facilitate these aims, we’ve implemented a number of website improvements that both enhance and simplify the user experience. These include increasing the number of available products for order by over 30%, increasing the number of ship-to countries by over 40%, and activating web chat to facilitate direct contact with our engineers and customer service teams!
A Return to Tradeshows.
In 2022, the Portescap team dived right back into exhibiting in person at tradeshows across the globe; our travels took us from the United States to Europe to India to China and back again! It’s been a long few years without seeing our colleagues, friends, and customers (not to mention the newest innovations and market trends) at these incredible industry events. Being back in the groove made us realize how much we had missed this in-person collaboration and networking. Check out the shows we attended in 2022:
- MediNov 2022 – Lyon, France
- MD&M West 2022 – Anaheim, California, USA
- Automate 2022 – Detroit, Michigan, USA (co-exhibited with our Altra Industrial Motion colleagues)
