Catalyst is dedicated to superior user experience exploration, industrial design, engineering, prototyping, validation and low-volume production. Our team has developed many of the products you currently see on the market from a simple idea or sketch created by our clients.

 Appearance counts, but functionality matters.

We employ some of the most creative and experienced people on the planet to provide world-class product development support.  The Catalyst process is a proficient, comprehensive approach to product development.  The result is an artistic, ergonomic and functional design that can be readily manufactured.  Our 28,000 square foot design center is backed by a complete in-house prototyping and manufacturing facility.

Our Clients

What our clients are saying…

 I think it’s important for an inventor to rely on Catalyst to guide them through the process … they created the blueprint that gave me confidence, but it also made me feel like I was part of the team.  It’s a great starting point for anyone who has an idea, I would highly recommend Catalyst.

Meet Matt Shade, inventor and President of The Push-Up Machine.  Matt came to Catalyst with an idea and a sketch on a napkin.  Now, he sells his successful invention online and even owns a patent based on his idea.

Matt Shade

President/Inventor, The Push-Up Machine

  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

Engineer, Yabozi Pet Products

 Catalyst took the time to listen to our story, figure out what we wanted and used their engineering skillset to match with our clinical skillset.  It’s produced a product that I think is going to not only be a viable business product, but I think it’s going to really help people take care of themselves.  They led us down a path where when we first handled the prototype, our reaction was ‘Oh, that is exactly what we meant.’  Without a doubt, sending people to Catalyst is something that I’ll do on a regular basis.”

Todd Arnold

Co-Founder, Creative Perspective

  Catalyst was very responsive, they were very interested in what we were doing and came highly recommended by others as well.  We really placed a lot of faith in Catalyst that they could get us where we needed to go.  They’ve done nothing but prove themselves and provided us with a different viewpoint to think more critically about our design.  We certainly wouldn’t be where we are today without Catalyst’s help.”

Co-founder, Creative Perspective

  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, Insects Unlimited

  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, Sterno Products

  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.”
