Triton Systems developed an adhesive technology that had the potential for multiple military applications and needed assistance in pursuing the development of specific products while also continuing to identify new product opportunities.

Growth Manufacturers Case Study
With the assistance of MassMEP, part of the MEP National Network™, Triton Systems was able to utilize OEA grant funds, through a grant with MassDevelopment, to hire two specific technical consultants to help with this effort. As a result, Triton has been able to bring one product development effort all the way to successful approval for implementation on a military platform, and another product is in the final testing and validation phase. MassMEP also conducted a TDMI session with Triton to identify new market applications and Triton has started initial testing to exploit those new product opportunities.
Triton is already manufacturing these products at scale and with strict Quality Control (QC), and has established a network of partnerships across the entire supply chain. This has positioned Triton to deliver scaled-up products rapidly to the Department of Defense market.
