INCAP STARTS TO MANUFACTURE DOG TRACKING DEVICES FOR TRACKER OY
Incap has started cooperation with Oulunsalo-based Tracker Oy to manufacture Tracker G400 dog tracking devices. The tracking devices will be manufactured and tested in the Incap factory in Estonia, which has acquired new testing equipment and know-how for this product. Tracker G400, the flagship of Tracker Oy, is a GPS collar for hunting dogs with which it is possible to monitor the dog’s position, movements and hunting with a map application for mobile phones.
Thousands of dog tracking devices are manufactured every year. Thus, the contract is a significant kick-off for Incap in the field of tracking technology, which is considered to be a strong growth area in the future.
When negotiating for the contract, Tracker considered Incap’s strengths to be its know-how related to prototype manufacturing and ramp-up combined with local operations near the customer. With the future development of the business in mind, the customer also rated Incap’s presence in India as a positive argument.
Incap has good possibilities to expand the cooperation in the future, because the customer’s goal is to focus its own resources in product development and marketing, and to use Incap as a partner to manufacture and deliver the finished products – tested and packed – directly to the end-customers.
