Expansion Offers Clients Regional Engineering and Support Services
SEATTLE, Oct. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Synapse Product Development has recently opened new offices in San Francisco and Hong Kong. The expansion into California provides new and future clients in the Bay Area with regional engineering, project management, and sales resources while the new office in China enables Synapse to provide its clients worldwide with customized New Product Introduction (NPI) services and support.
"As a center of innovation and technological advances the San Francisco area has unmatched partnership opportunities," said Scott Bright, Synapse CEO. "Opening an office in the Bay Area allows Synapse to work more strategically with our partners in the Silicon Valley while also increasing our exposure to new and exciting possibilities."
The addition of new clients and continued growth with existing partners has allowed Synapse to double its engineering headcount over the last year. With the San Francisco presence, Synapse will be able to better collaborate with Bay Area and Silicon Valley clients and attract exceptional new talent to the company.
The multidisciplinary team in San Francisco will be located in the SOMA neighborhood and grounded in the same core values the company was founded on: work/life balance, collaboration, seeking out technically challenging work, innovation, creativity, and the opportunity for employee growth.
Along with increased personnel and client opportunities in the Bay Area, Synapse has also expanded into localized services in Hong Kong to support the delivery of quality production and manufacturing. Highlights of the NPI services offered by Synapse include: vendor identification and selection, build planning, manufacturing oversight, production testing, quality control, and supply chain management. Establishing an NPI specific office in China ensures that Synapse will preserve product integrity through production, and simplify the client's experience by being the continuous touchpoint.
"Moving into Hong Kong and offering localized NPI services is critical as Synapse is dedicated to ensuring design integrity from concept through production," said Chris Massot, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Synapse. "In order to maintain that continuity, we need to be on the ground in Asia where manufacturing happens for so many of our clients."
Synapse Product Development provides Mechanical, Electrical and Software Engineering services, and supplies essential project management and innovative product design assistance to a broad range of clients from garage inventors to Fortune 500 companies.
Founded in 2001, Synapse Product Development solves the most difficult engineering challenges from concept through manufacturing for the leading entertainment, consumer electronics, life-sciences, and healthcare companies and organizations in the world. Synapse is headquartered in Seattle, Washington with additional offices in San Francisco and Hong Kong.
