“We were met with a significant challenge to complete a new customer’s order with short notice. The situation forced us to lean heavily on our suppliers to support our demand at a rate that was double that of standard production. Throughout the 4th quarter we constantly tested the agility of our suppliers to find creative solutions. Estes pulled through with flying colors. Whether it was working additional hours or utilizing alternative expedited shipping methods, we were never without production parts. Furthermore, the efforts surpassed expectations when Estes took up special orders for parts that were normally supplied by another vendor.”

– Owner, Consumer Product Design & Prototyping
“When choosing an outsourced partner, we needed to find a company that could both design the prototype and produce the final product. This way, we would receive the same style of feedback from start to finish.
With Estes Express Prototyping, we found exactly that. They have allowed us to develop prototypes quickly at a price that is very competitive.”
– Principal Engineer, Manufacturing Solutions Provider
“If the Estes Express Prototyping can take our design and make it well, then we can rest assured knowing our prototype can easily be transitioned into production. This is a differentiator for our purchasing team.
We trust Estes to be forthcoming if something is abnormal like if the tolerances are too tight, and it helps us eliminate these problems early in the process. If Estes can’t develop our prototype, then we know there is likely a problem with our initial design.”
