Martech was formed in 1988 to meet the request of a Fortune 500 company for an incoming IC inspection device. From those beginnings, Martech has grown to serve the needs of customers both large and small on a wide variety of projects.
We do receive a specification, but along the road of the design partnership, other lower cost and possibly more efficient methods of meeting the spec can be achieved. This working relationship and true partnership is what allows Martech to not only meet the needs of the intended application, but to become part of the in house design team. Understanding the product, bringing in years of experience from other industries, which can help broaden the scope and optimize the design of the product.
We can provide full turnkey solutions from a wide range of specifications. We have designed products which were quite literally drown on the back of a piece of scrap paper, all the way through a complete and thorough specification provided by the customer. We always have, and will continue to work both ways. The back of the napkin can be fun and challenging, as Martech and the host company develop an idea into a product.
In fact, we still have framed an actual sketch on scrap paper from an early device. We have the scribblings next to the final product. It brings us back to our roots. Flexibility is the key and we know all about flexibility.
The one item we believe sets Martech apart from the others, is our unique relationship with working professionals. These are our on-call engineers. Every one on our staff has a minimum of 10yrs experience in an outside industry, but with responsibility for our core needs; pcb layout, schematic capture, software development, EMC, antenna design, power electronics etc. These "phone a friend" as we like to call them work full time for another company, but work after hours for us. We will never put them in a position that compromises the integrity of what their primary job is, and the job we are asking them to perform (for instance if companies A and B are competitors, we would never ask an engineer from A to work on something for B). Some are semi-retired and others are retired.
