At RapidMade, we like to design and build things, and we like to work with clients who feel the same way. We believe that our customers’ competitive advantage stems from their ability to create, produce and market better products. That’s why we focus on applying the latest materials, manufacturing and engineering technologies to the process of developing, prototyping, manufacturing, and marketing products. It is this focus and passion, together with our ability to provide these services in a unique and cost effective way, that makes us different.
Based in Portland, Oregon, RapidMade was started in 2011 to capitalize on the expanding field of additive manufacturing and 3D digital design, to sustainably re-shore and localize manufacturing to the Northwest and to employ and educate a new generation of manufacturing professionals. By 2016, we had expanded into more complex projects involving tooling, sourcing, and engineering which included custom digital machinery design.
Our knowledge of materials, engineering and manufacturing processes extends to both traditional and advanced technologies. And we use this knowledge to help our clients apply the right solutions to their business needs. If you are looking to create a new product, improve an existing one, find a new manufacturing solution or looking for a partner who can help you take advantage of the latest digital and additive technologies then we can provide you with a range of services from a simple part or prototype to a complete analysis of your product or processing needs.
The digital economy, globalization and mass customization have fundamentally changed how we think about creating, marketing and manufacturing products. Companies and entrepreneurs are under continued pressure to create new products, increase speed to market, lower operating costs and maintain a broader range of product choices throughout the product life cycle. RapidMade is passionate about working with its clients to address these challenges and help them compete in the digital age.
