Engineering design for product function and manufacturability

Bullets (above) link to an expanded outline of topics in which professional engineer Robert D. Reid (Jr.) designs and/or interfaces.

Reid's expertise spans mechanical engineering, systems engineering, human factors, biomedical engineering, and design-for-manufacturing.

Such breadth is ideal for multidisciplinary projects and is backed by strong analytical skills.

For complementary talent, we turn to trusted associates in our Project Partners Network SM.

Together we engineer durable and disposable products and combinations thereof.
