Advanced Manufacturing Automation Solutions for Life Sciences

With offices spanning North America, E Tech Group’s Life Sciences automation and control systems engineers, a staff of more than 130, create value for industry-leading clients from coast to coast. We provide custom turnkey PLC- and DCS-based automation and IT systems, implemented by experienced and innovative engineering talent. 

In the ever-changing Life Sciences industry, we know that speed and scalability provide a competitive edge. To scale your operation from lab systems to commercial manufacturing, and everything in between, you need reliable automation. Our engineers will develop robust and compliant automated systems that you can validate consistently.

The Importance of Robust Process Control Systems in Life Sciences Automation

A comprehensively-validated process will ensure process and product quality no matter who’s on the production line. It’s critical in an industry where quality, safety and consistency are paramount. E Tech Group’s control and automation engineers have decades of experience validating the processes that produce life-saving pharmaceuticals, alternative proteins, and world-class medical equipment. By leveraging standards like GAMP5, we strive to slash downtime and revenue loss for our clients.   

In the Life Sciences industry, regulations and approvals mean that you’re always either in a development period of stasis, or a rapid growth period that follows a milestone like FDA approval. With E Tech’s automation and control systems in place, and processes validated, you can scale rapidly following approval: helping to recoup losses and beat your competition to market. Following FDA approval, we help you quickly deliver world-altering medicine, medical equipment, or alternative proteins. 

E Tech Group: Looking to the Future of Automation & Life Sciences Engineering

E Tech Group is especially interested in Life Sciences that are geared towards the future of Us, like medicinal remedies for rare disease and sustainable, ethical protein production. Alternative and cultured proteins are growing markets leveraging Life Sciences’ advanced technology — technology that E Tech Group is highly-experienced with. We apply our Life Sciences expertise to help our alternative protein manufacturing partners scale to meet increasing demand.
