More than 20 years ago, our sister company Schaeffer AG revolutionized the customized front panel business by developing Front Panel Designer, heralding customer-specific automated production in our company, long before it became the industry standard. Front Panel Express has continued this legacy and proudly follows the same tradition of quality and innovation.
Today, with our team based out of Seattle, WA, we produce front panels, enclosures and milled parts with CNC precision. Our team includes people from the most diverse backgrounds, lifestyles and professions. Drawing on our pooled in-house expertise, we do our utmost every day to provide you with products of the highest quality. In practice this means that we produce every front panel to a customized order at our own facility, checking each one manually before they leave our premises. This is only made possible by the seamless organization of internal teams within the company. Automating and digitalizing work steps is a fundamental part of the corporate culture we embrace.
To ensure processes at the company remain independent and flexible, we develop our software in-house wherever possible using open source solutions. This applies equally to customizations in the free ERP system ADempiere and optimizations in the production strategy – and of course in our Front Panel Designer.
Our customer service team is always available to help answer questions about Front Panel Designer or your order, or you need some technical advice. We also really appreciate and encourage customer feedback. Over the years, many of the innovative features implemented into Front Panel Designer have started as customer requests. Key milestones have included UV printing, glued-in studs and STEP export.
Across the world, thousands of technicians, engineers, hobbyists and companies of all sizes place their trust in our long-standing production expertise and delivery dependability. We still have a lot of plans for the future and will work passionately to keep impressing you with our quality, service, and innovation.
