Plastic Fabricator / Prototype Needed
Hello Startups forum members. I need your help! i have a product i need fabricating from a plastic based material. Has anyone got a contact or a company they can reccomend? any advice to protect my idea from the fabricator? Thanks in advance Gary
in terms of the second part of your question, its really unlikely anyone would "nick" your idea as this is just a small fraction of being in business (ie selling it to the world tends to be the hard bit) but your main routes are a non-disclosure agreement or more formally with a patent if it it s patentable design. Ordinarily the sorts of company that make low volume of one off items will be interested in fabrication, not your product.
Don’t lose sight of the fact that once your product is in the shops your design will by definition be public knowledge.

I found this site looking for information for my startup but I came across this and I’m sure I can help.
I specialise in prototyping and design development. I will be able to help you with your product. I’m based in London with manufacturing connections and clients around the world. I’m more than happy to sign a document whereby I cannot leak your product information or details if this is what you want or there are other options to protect your designs that I can assist and advise you on.
My start up is also to do with prototyping but that is to be launched soon.
