When this business startup came to us to discuss their ideas, we were impressed with their focus. They knew their skills were in computers, global brand marketing, product design and ergonomics. What this business startup needed help in was engineering and manufacturing of their touchscreen, self-service kiosks.
This small niche business knew what they had and knew what they needed. They needed a partner to handle the manufacturing side of the business.
After some discussions, we understood their vision, and offered our engineering services to get them started. We delivered their initial prints. Today, we handle all of their metal work and assemble the electronics into the kiosks. We even direct ship directly to their customers. It was a decision they never looked back on.

Manufacturing your own products is like buying a golf course to play golf. Eventually it may pay off, but why take the risks? When you outsource, you are also keeping your manufacturing partner’s feet to the fire. They must deliver consistently to keep the partnership growing. They also are counting on you to deliver what you promise. That is the point of a partnership that works.
