About

QTI Design & Prototype was founded in 1995.  The customers of Quality Tool were interested in a design service that offered cost savings for production.  Our expertise of sheet metal turned this opportunity into a reality.  Our design engineers work directly with the manufacturing engineers.  This allows for a final product that is easy to manufacture.  Our design services drive down production costs and speed up the development process.

QTI Design & Prototype has been providing innovative designs for over 20 years.  We have partnered with medical, telecommunications, industrial, computer, and consumer industries.
