TechHelp’s NPD team brings vibrant energy and creative new ideas to your project. Our specialists are particularly experienced in new product design and re-engineering existing products. Much of a product's costs can be established in the design phase. A strategic change in materials or simplification of components can result in major cost savings that could mean the difference between market success and failure.
Our NPD operation at the College of Engineering at Boise State University gives us close proximity to a variety of engineering resources, such as CAD software, rapid prototyping machines, a CNC milling machine, test equipment and the vast experience of university professors. We invite our clients to work with us, literally side-by-side, as a team to meet their unique product development needs.
Among Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) Centers nationwide, TechHelp is one of a handful that offer a full suite of New Product Development (NPD) services. Since 2002, TechHelp NPD has helped some of Idaho's top innovators develop new product ideas.
NPD isn't just about new ideas - sometimes older products can be given new life. Because product life cycles are typically two to five years, you need to constantly rethink and reinvent your products, your company and yourself.
What's your next big product or service offering? Maybe it is a new model, or a new feature, or a new product line, or how to reduce the cost of the first product. Visit TechHelp and work with us to take your idea to reality.
