About QTI Design & Prototype

Our History

QTI Design & Prototype was founded in 1995 due to customer demand for custom products and their interest in cost savings within production and assembly. As our customers were growing rapidly, they wanted to utilize our sheet metal expertise to aide them in their design. Since our design engineers work directly with manufacturing engineers we specialize in Design for Manufacturability (DFM) and drive down production costs.

QTI Design is committed to providing innovative designs and cutting costs. For over 20 years we have partnered with medical, telecommunications, industrial, computer and consumer industries.
