Design Services

Excellence by design

Whether your product or part is ready to be manufactured today or you have a new product idea, we can design a custom solution and engineer it to exceed your expectations. Through our dedicated design support team, we work with you to define the right path of execution and market deployment for your part or product while meeting your timetable and budget.

If you can conceive it, we can build it

Using the latest CAD software including FEA, our experienced engineers provide product design support and prototyping for a wide range of customers. We provide clients with product design expertise and support in introducing a new product to market. To improve plastic part designs and injection mold designs, we will provide mold flow analysis and follow a production part approval process to ensure quality parts that meet customer requirements the first time, every time.
