Solid Design Solutions is a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business that delivers product development and machine design services from entrepreneurial startups to fortune 500 companies.
Solid Design Solutions (Solid) was founded near Minneapolis in 1997 and recently opened an office in Wichita, Kansas in January 2017. We specialize as an end-to-end, product development and specialty machine design firm that helps bring products to market by harnessing clients’ technology, software and models in order to convert them into products that can be produced reliably and consistently. Solid provides mechanical, electrical, and software engineering, and develops concepts for product design, assembly and test systems, and manufacturing procedures.
Solid serves clients from entrepreneurial startups to such established, industry titans as 3M, Bose, Boston Scientific, Honeywell, Medtronic and Fastenal. Expertise coupled with state-of-the-art tools allow Solid to deliver value throughout the specialty machine and product development process. Its range of projects spans from sophisticated assembly and test systems and complex clean-room processes to connected wireless devices and highly successful consumer products.
In April of 2017, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Center for Verification and Evaluation, certified Solid Design Solutions as a verified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB). This SDVOSB verification is valid for three years. The Congressional act that established SDVOSB in 1999 sets an annual government-wide goal of not less than 3 percent of the total value of all prime contract and subcontract awards for small businesses owned by service-disabled veterans.
