PROTOTYPE EXPERTISE: DESIGN, BUILD AND TEST

Glenridge combines its best-in-class manufacturing facility, its advanced engineering team and a proven collaborative partnership with customers’ engineers to efficiently develop and test prototypes. Our approach saves time, delivers superior end results and helps customers capture profits by addressing issues timely and correctly.

Glenridge’s manufacturing process is designed to the specific requirements of a customer’s part rather than fitting a customer’s part to a specific manufacturing process. We are confident that by listening to our customers’ needs we are better positioned to steer them profitably.
