Los Angeles product development engineer, structural analysis and design

Our mechanical engineering services transform
ideas into manufacturable products

Developing innovative products demands the contribution of a top-notch mechanical engineering design company. Whether you require turnkey product development or input at a critical stage in the process, Nectar provides the mechanical engineering services that enable you to realize innovation.

We can help you leverage precision engineering to efficiently and cost-effectively take products from conceptualization through production. Our knowledgeable engineering professionals draw from their substantial experience and utilize the industry’s top engineering tools to refine and optimize product designs for manufacturability, ergonomics, and aesthetics. Nectar’s broad experience means that your products will be engineered to comply with all applicable industry standards and regulations.

By validating mechanical designs, optimizing design performance, and prototyping critical components, we can work with you to deliver superior products. Manufacturing the best products also demands effective production planning, fabrication, and assembly. Nectar provides all these services, including documentation and bill of materials (BOM) production, tool and manufacturing sourcing, design for manufacturability (DFM) and sustainability assessments, vendor qualification and capability studies, and inspection and quality assurance services.
