Why Choose Us?

Your Design. No Compromises.

While other prototyping services focus on manufacturing prototypes as fast and cheap as possible, we focus on quality. At The ERC, we NEVER sacrifice quality in order to cut costs. Instead, we've developed a unique tooling system to reduce our customers' upfront tooling costs while using steel tooling to maintain production-like quality. 

Why Prototype With The ERC?

  • Save money on prototypes with our unique modular tooling system.  
    We offer a "no compromise" solution to prototype and bridge tooling. Rather than reduce costs by constructing molds out of aluminum, our unique modular tooling system gives customers the benefits of steel for a fraction of the price of a standard injection mold. All of our molds are designed incorporating the highest level of quality and features that can be transitioned into use for low volume production runs. 
  • Take the risk out of prototyping. 
    If your prototypes will be used for product testing, you can't risk receiving faulty parts. Our business was built on our ability to make prototypes to the exact dimensions and tight tolerances our customers require. With The ERC, you can always count on receiving quality plastic parts.
  • Work with our expert engineers, designers and toolmakers. 
    You will work with engineering experts who understand the important role of prototyping while authenticating a design. Our team consults and designs prototype components with optimized parts in mind – facilitating a process that will help identify and reduce costly errors early in the production process.
  • Your materials & specifications, no compromises required.  
    When prototyping with The ERC, you'll have thousands of materials at your fingertips. We will never ask you to compromise on a specified material request. Our sampling process allows you to trial up to 3 materials at one time. 
  • Get to market, quicker and on budget.
    We understand the crucial time frames and budgets our customers’ work within and the importance of speed-to-market. The Engineering Resource Center is able to produce simple open and close molds within 6-8 days and ABS plastic parts in approximately 48 hours.
  • Own your design, production details & intellectual property.  
    Unlike many prototype service providers, concept designs and production specifications are kept the intellectual property of our customers.
