One simple story

Radiation testing made easier

A company came to Jessup looking for a way to make mandatory radiation monitoring easier for scientists and health care workers. The radiation test strips this company manufactured were bonded to cards worn by the workers and were collected after a specified period of time to be checked for compliance with maximum exposure levels. There were considerable costs and hassle factors with the production of the cards. The company wanted an easier way to produce, distribute and collect the test strips.

The Jessup Solve + Make team devised a pressure-sensitive adhesive bonding system for the nuclear radiation test strips. The adhesive could be affixed to clothing without residue. The need for a carrier system—the card—was eliminated. Jessup coated the test material, slit it into strips, packaged it and bar-coded it. The company enjoyed a significant cost reduction and more business due to the simpler system.


Another story

Entrepreneur finds innovation partner

An entrepreneur and his partner had an idea for a building material that would require no fasteners to apply. He found Jessup when looking for a coating company that had expertise in solvent based adhesives, a track record of product innovation, and an entrepreneurial spirit.

Jessup developed one product, then another, then a third with the entrepreneurs. Jessup took over sourcing the substrate for them, as well as warehousing and shipping. Jessup became the logistics operations for the company as well as the manufacturing partner. The entrepreneurs are now freed up to create new products and start new businesses.
