BEGIN WITH A SPARK
Every product design begins with a spark of inspiration, a problem in need of solution, an unmet need ripe for the picking. At Catalyst, we’re thinkers first and foremost. It’s what sets us apart from all other product design firms. Since 1999 Catalyst has grown to occupy a 28,000 square foot design center dedicated to user experience exploration, industrial design, brainstorming, engineering, prototyping, and validation.
We exist to provide creative design solutions for the real world. Using ingenuity and experience to solve problems, increase margins, and gather market share for clients. Any product development firm can offer trendy designs, but Catalyst delivers design thinking that works. Wouldn’t you want one of the best design firms in the industry defining your new product?
Want to know what it’s like working with Catalyst? Here’s what our clients have to say:
"From the time that the order is placed to the time that the order is delivered, the process is smooth. Catalyst updates us regularly on the status of the orders and gives us the information we need. They work with us to get us what we need and help us meet our production schedule with their suggestions."
- Eva Qian, JCM GLOBAL, USA/ Futurelogic, Purchasing/Materials Coordinator
"Insects Limited designs and makes insect traps with the help of Catalyst’s engineering and manufacturing capabilities. Throughout the design process, we requested many changes and Catalyst was always very open and good about responding.
“Once we saw how solid of a company they were, there was not much competition. From concept to reality, Catalyst was with us every step of the way, which is what we needed in a partner."
- Pat Kelley, Vice President
Yabozi Pet Products
“The pet industry is very competitive. If your product doesn’t stand out as unique, you’re going to get lost. Catalyst took my original vision and made it even better. Their integrity to design has gotten my company a lot of press and awareness.
“They’re very responsive. If I need something turned around in a couple days, then they will re-arrange things and get it done. I’ve worked with other plastics companies, but they are not as creative as Catalyst. I want someone who can take my vision/prototype and, within two or three versions, get exactly what I want.
“Catalyst understands the consumer market and brings a deep net of ideas to every meeting. The designers and engineers work really well together, so I know the designs can actually be produced."
-Andy Boyden, YABOZI Pet Products
"Sterno Products worked with Catalyst to develop initial concepting to production for one of our products. We chose Catalyst because it is both flexible and comprehensive, with industrial design, design engineering, CAD development, manufacturing feasibility, and plastic molding experts. Compared to other firms, Catalyst understood our end goals and worked with us to generate the best result."
-David Amirault, Vice President of Marketing
