"As rapid prototyping continues to mature and services become a commodity, I continue to look for areas of differentiation. TechHelp’s small size and focus on client relationships sets them apart from the "Big Box" service providers. "

Co Founder It's Alive Labs
"The TechHelp/NPD lab consistently goes beyond our expectations year after year. We have come to rely on their 3d printing and the engineering knowledge to support the continuing development of advanced materials and processes. This is a capital expense many small companies cannot make. Whatever is necessary to ensure the continuation and growth of this service has become a critical need for our success. Without them I don't know how we would have gotten off the ground."
