Our Story

After nearly two decades in the industry and endless frustration with typical model shops and low volume manufacturers, a few professional product designers and engineers decided to build the shop they’d always wished for and Firsthand was born.

Why We’re Different

The founders set out to create a one-stop shop and short-run production solution that was more aligned with modern product development cycles; that meant developing an organization that had not only the right mix of skills but could handle requests that ranged from just a couple of parts to a couple thousand parts.

Who We Serve

Firsthand serves product designers, engineers, entrepreneurs, and business owners across a wide variety of industries including product development, medical devices, aerospace, lighting, energy, commercial, electronics, and more.

Working collaboratively with clients in an array of industries, Firsthand has developed techniques to accommodate just about any ask. From start to finish, the team at Firsthand aims to make the process smooth and simple while providing impressive speeds and competitive pricing.
