We specialize in the “innovation space,” meaning we excel at ushering new ideas from start to finish while discovering the best solutions along the way for our partners.

We pride ourselves on offering excellent service, outstanding client communications, imaginative approaches and a long tradition of producing tremendous results.

Our project managers are experts in their fields with decades of innovation experience. They carefully supervise teams of talented Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology engineering interns who bring fresh ideas and out-of-the-box thinking to our projects.
We employ dozens of Rose-Hulman engineering interns year round to keep our projects on schedule.
We are equipped to handle everything from small, short-term projects on tight budgets to years-long development tasks. Either way, we are committed to upholding our reputation for excellence, creativity and results.
Our projects are user-driven and designed with future production and market sustainability clearly in mind.
Our clients range in size from individual entrepreneurs with great ideas to large corporations looking to improve an existing system or design.
