How We Beat the Competition
Instead of dwelling on our many successes over the past 10 years, we keep at the top of the design world each new year. This year alone, we were awarded with the Inventors Group Developer of The Year, Ontario Biofuels Association Green Product of the Year, Society of Manufacturing Engineers Senior Member position, TieQuest Finalist, and more.
We design with real in-house manufacturing experience – It is easy for another firm to make a design without any responsibility in the eventual manufacturing of the product, but since we end up manufacturing many of the products we design, our team always puts our extensive production experience into creating the perfect balance of quality and cost.
Along with Professional Industrial Designers, Management at Mako Invention includes two seasoned product sales veterans with MBA degrees. A strong understanding of the Business Needs behind any project is critical to designing a highly successful and profitable product.
We hire only within the highest graded 2% of students at the top 5 design schools in North America. Furthermore, as an active supporter, volunteer, and guest speaker at the Ontario College of Art and Design and Savannah College of Art and Design, we keep a close eye on the next top student coming up, and then bring them on board right out of school.
