Learning and creating for the world around us.

Rooted in authenticity,
built on reliability

Founded in 1988 in the heart of Southwest Michigan, creative vision and hard work laid the foundation for a business that continues to grow in a rapidly evolving industry. From the beginning, medical device design and development has been the core of our work. The rigor and attention to detail that comes with designing for the medical industry has awarded us success in supporting both major companies and start-ups from early stage development to commercialization. The same principles apply as we’ve expanded to serve customers in a wide variety of other industries including consumer and industrial goods, electronics, and appliances.
