We get the opportunity to chat with many Kickstarter creators, small business owners, and other entrepreneurs about their experiences with electronic device manufacturing and PCB prototyping all of the time. One of the challenges that they frequently cite is finding a PCB prototype companythat can support their needs and deliver inexpensive, high-quality boards quickly.
That’s why we set out to create a different type of PCB prototype company. We want to empower everyone with a great idea to try it. We believe that there are genius thinkers among us and we want to stamp down the barriers that keep their ideas from becoming reality. Here are a few things that make us different.
We are drop-dead easy to do business with.
Not that long ago, doing business with any PCB fabrication and device or electronics manufacturing company was hard. Most were located overseas and utilized business processes from the 80’s to process orders. Lead times were long and order management was complex or impossible. Forget that.
We offer a seamless PCB assembly and device manufacturing service. You simply upload your design documents and BOM and we’ll provide you with an instant, online quote for your prototype. If you decide to proceed, we’ll handle the sourcing of parts and get your board in your hands in short order. All the while, you’ll be able to track the progress of your order online, anytime.
We don’t want cost to be a barrier.
We want you to be able to create as many prototypes and iterate as many times as you like. That means keeping costs as low as possible. How do we do it? First, we harness the buying power across all of our customers to keep an inventory of the most commonly used parts that we buy in large quantities, getting significant discounts from suppliers. We pass that savings on to you. Next, we use sophisticated PCB manufacturing software that lets us combine many small orders into big ones, reducing costs across the board.
We believe it’s best to address the complete product lifecycle.
If all you want is PCB prototyping, that’s fine by us. But if you also need device manufacturing, inventory, and fulfillment services, we’ve got your back. We offer a turn-key service that will take you from concept to customer, painlessly, with little risk and for as good of a price as possible. One stop shopping lets you focus on building your products and your business without the hassle of DYI product manufacturing or multiple vendors to manage.
We are a PCB prototype company, but we are also so much more. Clients who choose us get a partner that is committed to helping our customers succeed and enjoy the journey.
