Creative is an expert research and development laboratory, Crossway is a versatile production center.

Together, they deliver an industrialized product from a simple idea.

Since 1998, the two companies have accumulated strong skills in the design and manufacture of complex systems combining on-board electronics (RF, motor control, low consumption), mechanics (fluidics, regulation, manufacturing processes, controls) and software (real time, communicating devices).

feasibility

Creative takes charge of your project as it is and intelligently carries it out in consultation with you

The technical, functional, budgetary and planning compromises are established by mutual agreement through a feasibility phase. We share with you our past experiences in terms of risks and opportunities, in order to secure your project and ensure optimal performance.

Development

Electronics, software and mechanical teams work together to find the most efficient and rational solutions to carry out your functions.

The ergonomics of the product, its style, the legibility and reactivity of the screens, the power consumption, the lifespan… are all parameters taken into account by our experts.

Industrialization and quality

At Creative, the factory is never far away and our designers think industrialization from the first stroke of the pen

It is a question of choosing technologies and materials adapted to the expected volumes and objective prices; we choose standard parts, reliable and reproducible processes and provide effective testing facilities.

ELEctronic manufacturing

Crossway's specialist teams supply, manufacture and test electronic boards fitted with SMD or through-hole components in small or medium production runs.

The expertise accumulated on a wide range of projects and Creative’s proximity enables the production unit Crossway to deal with any contingencies as quickly as possible. Obsolescence management or the search for replacement solutions can be implemented.

assembly

Crossway is not only a production unit for electronic sub-assemblies

The serial integration of complete systems, combining electronic, mechanical, fluidic, modularized and tested separately, is a specialty of Crossway.

Services

Crossway provides procurement of electronic and mechanical components and obsolescence management...

…as well as service and operational maintenance of complete systems to support your product throughout its entire lifecycle.
