We are an environmentally friendly consultancy founded in 1997, with the singular goal of helping clients get to market with robust, well thought out and designed products that they can build their brands on. We strive to provide the best quality service for a very competitive rate. We have been powered by renewable energy since our inception over 23 years ago, not because we liked to have people laugh at us, but because it needed to be done. We don't gouge our clients and you don't pay extra for lavish offices. We work with inventors, startups and fortune-100 companies.

We've worked in nearly every industry, including: alternative energy systems, athletic equipment, automation, bags and luggage, consumer goods, consumer electronics, commercial and scientific appliances, female hygiene products, furniture, high-performance automotive, medical and surgical equipment, sporting goods and bicycles, toys, various manufacturing processes and a whole lot more.

We love projects that have the environment in mind; we give discounts to eco-friendly projects.

We've probably passed up a lot of good paying work over the years, but we don't work on things that kill people: firearms or firearm accessories, weapons, military goods (unless medical related), aerospace delivery devices (things that carry things that kill people), and ladders (that's a different story).
