What is the right time to start?
It is advisable to involve us in the development of your product at an early stage. You instinctively believe it could be successful, but it would be a pity if you passed over the technical requirements that your product has to meet. You can count on confidentiality if you involve us in the first stage of your plans so that we can advise you. We will test the prototype, which is always better than waiting until production has started. Once we have tested and approved your prototype, you can rest assured that it meets the requirements of the market you plan to serve.
