IDS is a talented group of professionals who deliver innovation in product design and development through a true integration of industrial design, engineering, prototyping, and contract manufacturing. Our founding business principle was to put together a development team who could produce creative product designs that were also engineered to be manufacturing ready. We’ve accomplished that goal by taking a collaborative approach across disciplines.
