Shape Prototype is a prototyping and manufacturing team based in and around Shenzhen, China. Our goal is to support global hardware and IoT startups by providing with affordable resource, shortening the manufacturing process and minimising the production cost.

Over the past 8 years our product engineering and tooling team worked as a contract manufacturer building for large companies in the US, such as Tesla, Intel, Phillip. As a product supplier we are aware that often when a manufactured product reaches to its owner, it could have passed through several intermediaries and that the production cost could increase several times. This, regrettably, puts a financial strain on the early days of a startup.

Since 2015, apart from serving high profile companies, Shape Prototype was born focusing on small businesses and startups. With the same mahcning and tooling team, our goal is to assist with worldwide entrepreneurs in product manufacturing process without compromising in product and service quality. We bridge the gap between the startups and manufacturer. This not only helps ease the manufacturing process but eliminates the production costs that have been spent going through intermediaries. 

From 1 to 100,000+ custom parts and from prototyping to rapid tooling and volume production, we provide personal assistance on every project. Contact us today and discover a better way to approach your manufacturing needs!
