    Pivot International can help take your product idea beyond prototype into reality.

    Headquartered in Lenexa, we offer the seamless convenience of working with a U.S. company and the financial advantages of utilizing its own in-house, offshore, tooling procurement and manufacturing capabilities. We offer services in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, software design, industrial design, project management, contract manufacturing, electronic manufacturing services (EMS), prototyping, supply chain management, data management, business development, marketing and regulatory compliance.

    With over 40 years’ experience, our unique skill set and business model allow Pivot to engage as much or little as needed in the design and development process. Our clients range from startups and entrepreneurs to large corporations.

    Founded in Kansas City in 1972, Pivot International started as a product design and development engineering firm. We were one of the first U.S. product development firms to jump into global sourcing, opening a procurement office in Taiwan (1985) and a manufacturing division in the Philippines (1989). Pivot has completed the ISO:9001 and the ISO:13485 certification processes. Our factory is FDA registered.

    In the world of entrepreneurship, a startup is said to “pivot” when it makes a change in its business model. Though often difficult and laborious, pivots are a crucial part of the business process. At Pivot International, we are committed to this idea of helping our clients tailor their products to the right markets and finding the perfect positioning.
