Who We Are

We seek to improve human existence. We achieve this by developing products that matter, and by building relationships that last. Our US based team has a breadth of skills, with significant depth in industrial and rugged products.

Businesses hire us for our product development, machine design, electronics design, and manufacturing management capabilities. Our enterprise clients tell us we develop products faster than they can. We’re passionate about designing rugged products for industrial and other applications

Many times, a company will hire us for the entire product development process. Sometimes companies hire us for just part of the project and we engage with their internal teams.

As a full service product design company, we offer everything you need to develop a product from concept to manufacturing. Our US based design, engineering, and development team has the breadth of experience to develop the product you have in mind.

Compelling new products aren’t just functional, they are rugged and carry an aesthetic that is appropriate for the people that use them. Our industrial designers work collaboratively with you and your marketing team to develop the look and feel your customers want.

Our embedded systems team is a valuable part of our overall development team. We develop the complete product in-house. This includes PCBA development, component selection, firmware development, connectivity, and ruggedization.

Prototyping is one of the primary tools we use in our rapid cycles of build-test-learn. With in-house electronics prototype build capabilities, and in-house mechanical prototyping capabilities, we not only design the prototype, but build it as well. We can build one unit, or a small batch of your rugged product. We frequently produce prototypes of complex electromechanical systems.

Our heritage in manufacturing and machine design is unique. With decades of experience developing machines and specialty equipment, our team of mechanical engineers, programmers, and machine designers is ready to design your machine.

Sometimes contract manufacturing is the way to go. Our trusted network of manufacturers is ready to help, and we will guide you through quoting, selection, engagement, and ramp-up. Our network is well suited to medium volume production of rugged and industrial products.
