Our services

Why us?

Have you ever watched a movie Joy? If you haven't and you're an aspiring entrepreneur, go watch it, it's great! The movie shows how tough it was to break into the world of design and manufacturing – you needed lots of cash and patrons. The process was:

  • Expensive: lots of cash was needed to produce a mold and warehouse large quantities of parts
  • Slow: time to design the product for mold production was painfully long
  • Unforgiving: once the design was locked in and the mold produced, performing large scale market tests and iterating on the design as a result of user feedback meant a lot of new investment
  • Unsustainable: injection molding required vast energy systems for mass manufacture, provided by nuclear, natural gas or coal power plants

Failure to quickly sell the product with such considerable upfront costs prevented a lot of starter entrepreneurs with great ideas from growing their businesses. Some would even struggle to get the business off the ground in the first place.


We at Ecotonos want to make sure great ideas make it to the market and aspiring entrepreneurs go on to build successful businesses. We’ve perfected our very own accelerated product development process over the years of manufacturing our in-house designed products and collaborating with few select clients. For the first time we are opening our House of Industry services to anyone, who is interested in bringing their idea to market. Here’s how it works:

  1. Design your product or have us design it for you
  2. We manufacture prototypes and supply on demand digital manufacturing for you and your customers
  3. Iterate based on user feedback, create variants and/or scale up to mass manufacture as your product matures

Here's how it works
