Saint Paul, MN (PRWEB) October 7, 2010
The Prototyper, a leading plastic and metal product development company, has expanded its sales force to over 30 strong - including adding representatives in Canada.
"The goal is to have sales representatives in all major markets throughout North America, providing engineers with a direct, personal contact in their backyard," said David Persons, owner of The Prototyper. "No other prototype company has this kind of coverage, giving The Prototyper an edge in meeting the needs of OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) with speed, efficiency and individualized attention."
The Prototyper is an engineering support group for metal castings, injection molding, rapid prototyping and production run parts.The company, in business for more than a decade, offers manufacturers access to dozens of different methods for the development of prototype projects and a wide array of materials.
"The sales team is versed on the latest casting methods and materials for the development of metal and plastic prototypes," said Persons. "These innovations greatly reduce the time it now takes to produce metal and plastic prototypes."
For example, said Persons, one accelerated casting process called Insty-Metals is perfect for engineers needing castings in aluminum, steel, iron and other metals. High-quality and fine finish castings can be done in a matter of days, he explained.
When it comes to plastics, The Prototyper offers options for cast and cut tools for injection molding, vacuum forming, rotational molding, blow molding and fiberglass, said Persons. The company also provides design and reverse engineering.
"From design to production parts, The Prototyper has the ability to serve all product development needs," said Persons. "The objective is to provide engineers with a one-stop source to help them develop their products, be it metal, plastic or rapid prototypes. Engineers cut one PO and deal with one project manager - regardless of how many different parts or different materials there are in their project parameters."
Persons said the company's expanded sales force is poised to assist manufacturers in determining which options work best for their project, taking into account cost, material, lead-time and tolerance. "Then we can help engineers make smarter decisions, and bring their product to market more quickly and efficiently."
