Slingshot has developed over 1,000 new products since 2001. The company began by first merging the disciplines of Industrial Design and Engineering into a single, unified product development process. Slingshot quickly added manufacturing services to assist clients with sourcing and management of product supply chains. More than a decade ago Slingshot expanded the company’s new product development services to include Science and Technology with core competences in chemistry, materials science, biological sciences and STEM disciplines to expand the range and capability of new product development work. As part of this expansion, the company established a science and technology laboratory, complementing its existing mechanical and electrical engineering labs.
Slingshot’s product development process is tried and tested, and undoubtably a success factor. Our clients leave our process with new products and a new understanding of how products are developed. Our process also served as the model for the product development class now taught in Georgia Institute of Technology’s world-class Biomedical Engineering Program.
In 2016, Principals Taylor Leigh and Nigel Flynn acquired Slingshot from its previous owners and have enjoyed significant growth in the years since. The company recently relocated to purpose-built offices and labs in Duluth, GA.
