With over 100 years of combined industry experience crossing many industries including the medical, consumer, industrial and commercial markets, our team has the mechanical engineering skills and resources to handle your most challenging design projects.
Our design team is unique for many reasons. We blend a specialized team that will help make sure your product is as easy to use as it is good looking. At the same time our designers have a deep understanding of how their work relates to the engineering of the product and make sure the concepts we show you are feasible and will hit your budgets.
We offer a broad variety of prototyping services to help you take your product or device from concept to reality. We offer many services in house as well and a broad portfolio of vendors for many production methods and needs.
We provide executive leadership for projects as well as internal engineering project managers to many of our clients. We can help lead a team of your engineers and designers to implement our design process into your business. We also always provide a project manager to larger scale product development and design projects.
