    • Rekluse Al 400

      Without TechHelp, Rekluse and the Z-Start Clutch would not exist.

      Al Youngwerth, Owner/Inventor/CEO, Rekluse Motorsports
    • The Melni Connector took shape as a series of prototypes.

      “I wonder what Tesla or Edison might have done with a resource like the TechHelp New Product Development Team at Boise State. Without this great resource, the Melni Connector would still be just an idea in my head. They’re knowledgeable and provide a range of unique services at a decent price. It’s been a pleasure working with them! The ONLY source for true innovation in bringing our invention to market is the TechHelp NPD Lab at Boise State.”

      Mark Melni, Inventor of the Melni Connector
    • “We appreciate all that TechHelp has done for us. Dave O’Connell has been a huge help! When we get this compressor system project behind us, we’ll have a conversation about lighting.”

      Nathan McMasters, President, Diversified Metal Products
    • “Export Excellence opened our eyes to what we didn’t know and caused us to build a long-term export plan for Rekluse. The expertise and support we receives is remarkable and the export resources available to us have exploded!”
      Joe DeGano, Sales & Marketing Manager
      Rekluse Motor Sport

    • “As great as they were, I wonder what Tesla or Edison might have done with a resource like the TechHelp New Product Development Team at Boise State. The NPD Team has always been a great resource to me. Without them, the Melni Connector would still be just an idea in my head. They’re knowledgeable and can provide a range of unique services at a decent price. It’s been a pleasure working with them! Our product is disruptive and ‘out-of-the-box’ and we feel that the ONLY source for true innovation in bringing our idea (invention) to the market is TechHelp and the New Product Development Lab at Boise State.”

    • Thank you TechHelp – The Trio from TRiO – Sage McGee, Koree Young and Ariana Gardipe

      TRiO Upward Bound
    • “We were extremely pleased with the quality of the training, curriculum and facilities provided by TechHelp. All of TechHelp’s LECP instructors were top-notch. Our Lean initiative is helping us meet our company wide goals to ship on time & complete, improve safety, improve first pass quality and drive Lean benefits company wide.”

      James Peterson, Operations Manager, Door Group of Woodgrain Millwork
    • “Besides the obvious things excellent Lean training can do, what stood out most was that the LECP training class was more like a boot camp. Old habits were stripped away and replaced with new and improved habits learned through the practical hands on training methods incorporated in the class.”

      Scott Soule, Corporate Engineer, Trus Joist
    • “We could have gone into shut down mode during the economic downturn but instead decided to pursue Lean initiatives that had been on the back burner for a while. Working with the TechHelp guys was great. By engaging our entire team, everyone felt a part of the improvement initiative which greatly improved morale.”

      Marty Artis, President, FAMCO
    • “As a lone inventor, I rely on TechHelp for the tools, knowledge and expertise needed to bring my ideas to life. The TechHelp NPD team at Boise State is fast, friendly, effective and affordable. The diverse team includes mechanical engineers, student engineers, and even an artist who bring lots of energy and original ideas to any project.”

      Rick Anson, CEO, NUTRA-LIFE Inc.
    • “The ExporTech Program gave us the time and resources needed to really focus on and succeed at export planning. Instead of just responding to random requests, we were able to analyse the entire world and proactively choose where, why and how we wanted to expand.”
