Product Results

Through creativity and technical understanding, the Design 1st team developed a manufacturable product ready for market that achieved CSA certification.

Award-Winning Product that went From Idea to fully manufactured in under tenmonths

Working with their world-class engineering team, I was involved and guided throughout the patenting, design, engineering and prototyping process. With their broad range of suppliers, in-depth materials knowledge and prototyping capabilities – my product successfully achieved its CSA certification. Beta trial units are being handled by the Design 1st New Product Introduction (NPI) team, coordinating the build with suppliers and testing. From here to market is now in sight and my business opportunity is now expanding with its potential uses in the home building and renovation industry.”
