In Our Client's Words

Al Youngwerth
Founder of Rekluse & Versabuilt
"Without TechHelp, Rekluse would not exist"
Chris Rodgers
Creator of Rapid Rope
“TechHelp was willing to work with me at my own pace on little pieces of the product at a time. It was great working with the entire NPD team, including the students and management. The whole process was awesome”
Calvin Allan
Engineering Director, DECKED
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.
Charlotte Armstrong
Owner, Cowboy Tom’s Flapjacks
“TechHelp has been a wonderful asset to our business. With each meeting, new and different ideas come to the surface. Their guidance and direction have been invaluable.”
Mark Melni
Inventor of Connector & Owner of Melni LLC
“I wonder what Tesla or Edison might have done with a resource like the TechHelp New Product Development Team. Without them, the Connector would still be just an idea in my head. ” – Mark Melni, Inventor,Melni LLC
Caleb Chung
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.
