About Us

Our company was founded in 1991 and we have accumulated 35 years of Engineering experience starting with tool and die making, several years of keyboard and relay switch design, then branching into several other areas. We’ve done mechanical design and Engineering on hundreds of products, some supplying our own I.D. styling and some with our very experienced I.D. partner.

We focus our efforts on just a few projects at one time and have kept ourselves small in order to do this. This also keeps our and your costs down.
