Boston Engineering is the only MassDevelopment Innovation Center with product development and engineering services that span from ideation through supply chain development.
Waltham, Mass. (PRWEB) March 18, 2015
MassDevelopment has named Boston Engineering an Innovation Center as part of the agency’s new Manufacturing Innovation Grants program to provide discounted product development services to help small Massachusetts manufacturers grow their businesses.
Massachusetts companies with 100 or fewer employees can apply to an Innovation Center for product development services including proof-of-concept, prototyping, cost reduction, design for manufacturing (DFM), and supply chain development. MassDevelopment’s Manufacturing Innovation Grants program will pay the lesser of 75% or $75,000 of the cost of a contract between a company and an Innovation Center. Companies will pay the remaining costs and will contract directly with an Innovation Center.
Boston Engineering is one of only a few organizations selected for this program, and is the only Innovation Center with product development and engineering services that span from ideation through supply chain development. Boston Engineering combines industrial design, product engineering, and manufacturability expertise to help growing companies create successful products in today’s highly competitive market.
