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 Express 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 and 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 Express Prototyping for help. Estes Express 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.
