We help define, design, engineer and deliver mass-produced products.
Slim in Dutch means:
Bright | Clever | Smart | Intelligent
We design electronic products using a lean, integrated development process with minimal overheads. We design and develop products with a focus on ‘reduction to the essentials’. This philosophy allows us to create meaningful projects that push the boundaries of possibility in both design and technology.
Partners and Corporations
We function as an external development department for our partners. We have created and nurtured long-lasting relationships through the addition of value to each and every client project we work on .
In an overcrowded marketplace, we help our clients to stand out from the crowd, gain a competitive edge, and increase their brand equity. We take pride in the multiple design and innovation awards we’ve received over the years, but we take the most pride in our clients’ satisfaction and securing valuable patents for them.
