Sharing our Vision™
For over 20 years large and small firms in the Midwest and beyond have relied on our vision to guide them in developing their key products. Control Vision designed and/or manufactured products have easily exceeded $100 million in market revenue over the past two decades.
Dreams to Reality
We are your on-shore, out-source, resource for mechanical and electrical design services, software engineering, electronics manufacturing, and injection molding. Our unique suite of capabilities makes us a one-stop design and manufacturing service house that can turn your concept into reality.
Freeing your resources
If you have a great idea, letting us manufacture it frees your resources, allowing you to concentrate on marketing. Staying on-shore with your design and manufacturing processes pays big dividends in time-to-market and you’ll also save yourself the hassles of communications and quality problems often associated with off-shore manufacturing. When your new product experiences the inevitable teething pains of it’s infancy – ask yourself who you would rather be working with – someone down the street, or half-way around the world.
Come to the experts
We have designed hundreds of products for dozens of clients in diverse industries. We understand the challenges and pitfalls of turning good ideas into great products. Our design consulting services will help you refine your idea, improving your chances of not merely being successful, but of excelling in the marketplace. Whatever your product concept is, odds are that we have already designed and even manufactured something like it. You will begin the race with a head-start by teaming with us based on our incredible library of proven solutions. We can be your manufacturing partner in a variety of fields and disciplines.
Forest or Trees?
A lot of firms can design a PC board for you, but Only Control Vision sees your project as a total product, not as a collection of components. Our vertical approach to custom product development means that the buck stops here. Your PC boards will fit the enclosures, and the power supplies will support the PC boards because we oversee the entire process for you.
Vendor or Partner?
Depending upon your needs and budget, we can either serve you for a fixed cost as a vendor, or we can share the risk with you as a partner. Our production partnerships can help you shift some of the up-front development costs to the production cycle, saving you valuable money in the critical start up and launch phases of your product.
