Quickparts, Inc. (www.quickparts.com), North America's largest provider of custom designed parts, from low-volume prototyping to production parts, reports a record-setting 2006. According to Ronald L. Hollis, President and CEO, "In the custom design part market, we have successfully gone from a start-up to one of the top 10 producers of low volume parts in just seven years, posting 1300% growth from 2000-2006, continuing our record as one of the fast-growth success stories in North America and the innovators in product development services.
“Quickparts is an entirely new way of obtaining custom manufactured plastic and metal parts. Traditional methods of obtaining rapid prototypes take too much time, leave lots of room for error, and are often a bigger hassle than anticipated," Dr. Hollis explained.
“By maximizing the speed, accuracy and efficiency of the Internet," he continued, "our QuickQuote process enables product designers to obtain instant price quotes and buy custom parts online 24x7. Quickparts has served over 36,000 users, generating more than 233,000 quotes for plastic and metal parts from our customers' unique designs. With Quickparts' patented QuickQuote® technology, users simply upload their 3D CAD data, select their manufacturing process, and a custom binding quote is presented in seconds.
"Quickparts is the Web-based factory floor, helping product developers accelerate bringing products to market, plus providing significant production capacity. Many small- to medium-sized manufacturers are relying on Quickparts for production quantities. Guaranteed top-quality parts, a focused sales and project management system, and industry-best lead times mean that manufacturers deliver their finished products to customers faster and more inexpensively than ever," concluded Dr. Hollis.
