Design and Engineering

The Box Build approach to creation is distinguished by its honesty: each element is integral to the whole and each element is purposeful, simple, solid, and sustainable.

At Box Build, we:

  • Envelop your product concept with a core strategy.
  • Create an industrial design that reflects the brand, its consumers and their values.
  • Infuse it with innovative technology, materials and manufacturing solutions.

We maintain this 360 degree development perspective throughout the entire process.

Manufacturing/Supply Chain Management

From our perspective, bringing a great product to market is much more than just taking an order, snapping together some parts, and putting it in a box. Our expert production team uses a hands-on approach to directly manage and guide your project through every step of the process, including DFM, testing and certification, tooling, fixturing, component sourcing, part production, final assembly, QA/QC inspection and approvals, packaging, and shipping documentation. Box Build ensures that when your product is completed for on-time delivery and global distribution, it will be a truly world-class product you can be proud of.
