Monitor Products adds Oklahoma office

Monitor Products Inc. said it is expanding its operation and opening a new sales and engineering design office in Stillwater, Okla.

Although some of Monitor’s related business activities have been taking place in Oklahoma since early this year, the company said Wednesday that the new office is officially open. It offers customers product design and engineering support services for Monitor products. The company said it will continue to maintain production engineering and design support at its manufacturing headquarters in Brooksville, Fla.

“Monitor Products has always considered itself a heavily engineering- and design-focused company,” Andy Logan, the company’s vice president of sales and engineering, said in a statement. “However, the face of new product development, engineering and design has changed dramatically over the past several years with the introduction of design platforms such as PTC, Solid Works and AutoCad. The basic design principles, and application of any cooling system design to the proper operating environment are still critical; however, the available tools used during product development are game changers.

Monitor is an ISO-certified manufacturer of heat-transfer products to OEMs throughout the marine industry and other industrial product markets. The company provides engineered cooling system solutions, including heat exchangers, coolers and other related products.

“These design platforms allow suppliers to work simultaneously in conjunction with customers on larger design assemblies, which allows for more synergy between the supplier and customer in driving the outcome of the final product,” Logan said. “Along with these design platform tools, the wide array of predictive analysis tools available are also very useful in compressing the overall development time, as well as controlling development costs by providing better design direction before any tooling investment is required.

“We recognize all of this at Monitor Products Inc. and are fully vested toward continuing to provide our customers with the highest level of engineering and design support when providing them with product solutions.”
