Reduction in Costs and Lead-Time

After searching for a reliable rapid prototype vendor, one of the largest packing equipment suppliers in the world came across Estes Accelerator – Product Development & Prototyping. This customer previously had issues with lead time, reliability, and quality with other suppliers.

Improvement in Speed to Market

A small, leading edge communications company was in start-up mode and needed a supplier that could help take a rough product concept and help make it a commercialized reality. If that was not enough, the company needed a supplier that could dedicate its people and equipment to the job when needed so that on-the-fly revisions could be incorporated and extremely tight lead-times could be met.

Development of Better Product at Lower Cost

A client recently revealed to Estes that with their old fabricator, they were managing the production process themselves – taking three weeks to shuttle parts from one subcontractor to another, wasting precious time that could have been spent on revenue-generating business operations. Raw materials alone cost more than $24 per product produced. Continuing to manage production in this manner would prohibit the client’s growth.

Same Day Completion

A privately held international company was looking for a customized, aesthetically pleasing, finished piece to complement an existing prototype. After the previous manufacturer sent a broken piece, the company needed a quick delivery for a presentation. They needed a prototype shop they could trust.

Personalized Service & Lead-Time Reduction

A privately held company needed a completed panel from start to finish. Due to pressure from a customer, the company had a tight deadline to deliver the panel. The company turned to Estes Accelerator – Product Development & Prototyping for help. Estes Accelerator projects are led by one project manager from start to finish, which significantly reduces lead-time. Zero handoffs mean information is not lost or sitting on someone else’s desk waiting to move down the line.
