The Pro Audio Launchpad
OPENNESS & HONESTY
Whether it is a single contribution to an existing project, management of the whole product development cycle, or the creation of an innovative new brand or product range, our commitment to our clients remains the same.
We understand that in any endeavour that the first 90% is only half the journey, we also do the last 10% to fully realise the potential of our work. That is our difference, the willingness to put in the extra effort, when others consider they’ve done enough already.
We believe that the total cost of ownership, long operating life and high retained value, are more important than the price tag. When we manufacture products, we are consuming the planet’s resources, so we want to do so as responsibly as possible.
We combine this philosophy with over a decade working in environmental compliance for the electronics industry, with practical experience of complying with regulations for recycling and the use of restricted materials on a global basis
Sometimes the most able voices are the quietest. And not all ideas arrive fully formed, some need nurturing to grow and evolve. We seek to provide an environment where we can work in partnership to fully realise the potential of ideas as commercially viable products.
One that allows for a constructive exchange of ideas, built on trust, respect and inclusion, where we collaborate with our clients to our mutual benefit, to create innovative and successful product designs consistent with our core values.
We welcome collaboration with like-minded individuals and companies, building on our respective strengths and expertise to deliver original and compelling brands and products..
Our management team has many decades of collective experience working for some of the most respected brands the pro audio industry, with numerous product successes and industry innovations to their credit.
With our head office in Hong Kong, we are well placed to leverage the benefits of the tightly integrated supply chain offered by the Guangdong Pearl River Greater Bay Area. We have a close relationship with our OEM manufacturing partner that allows us to optimise our Inventors’ designs for mass manufacture, to create cost-efficient and reliable products.
