Design and Engineering

Success in any engineering endeavor is more than execution of a good design. It is taking a project from concept to reality with perspective and predictive vision, active participation, and accountability. For Microtek, success is the culmination of efforts with a singular vision; to achieve definitive goals. Our engineering staff is comprised of seasoned veterans and recruits, partnerships with industry leading companies, along with our relationship with leading engineering programs at universities. We’ve created a balance of experience, passion, and vision to provide our clients with a breadth and depth of talent and expertise rarely found under one roof. From full-service turnkey product development to on-site engineering support, our multi-disciplinary approach incorporates systems and processes allowing clients to optimize the outcome of their project.
