You're about to discover an exciting new resource for your product development team.
Our collaboration with the American consumer and CPG industry is having a profound impact on product development, changing the way innovation goes to market. During our first 5 years in business, 197 of our collaborative innovations made it to the shelves of 7 major retailers, with dozens of additional items currently making their way through the process.
AON Invent’s engineering and design teams are second-to-none. Many times we can have engineering renders or concept mockups ready within 3-10 business days. Once we have final design approval, our teams can, under most circumstances, have production files ready for tooling within weeks instead of the customary 12-18 months.
To learn how we can help you, give us a call. We’re AON Invent, and we will change your world.
