Porticos was founded in 2003 by Greg Patterson, Sean Ahr and Kevin Carpenter, all practicing mechanical engineers with extensive background in product development. That team met at Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications, recognizing a shared enthusiasm for innovation. “There is always a better way…”
They decided to incorporate, and the mission for the company was clear: Turn the client’s vision into successful product, and do it better than anyone else.
Porticos was fortunate to attract the attention of some important clients early in our history. Since then, Porticos has designed products for some of the largest companies in the world.
Porticos continues to pursue new opportunities in diverse markets. Consumer Electronics still makes up a healthy percentage of our portfolio. While we maintain a core competency in commercial/industrial handheld electronics, we increasingly focus on medical devices and energy systems. Whenever the opportunity arises, we give special attention to projects that are harder to categorize: Fuel cells, fluid devices, and firefighting equipment.
