RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC – Porticos has quietly reached a milestone that has been years in the making. The company can now boast a team of 20 engineers, contractors, and support staff, a substantial achievement that is even more extraordinary in these times of economic uncertainty.
This growth (35% in 2011 alone) can be attributed largely to careful planning and focusing in five critical markets:
- Consumer Products – most notably cell phones and laptop computers
- Industrial Products – ranging from bar code scanners to industrial test equipment
- Military Products – including military radios and the Porticool II cooling vest
- Energy Systems – hybrid solar devices and the Department of Energy residential clothes dryer
- Medical Products – focused primarily on patient-worn wireless devices and animal / veterinary products.
Porticos has a reputation for designing high-quality handheld wireless devices, due largely to the fact that the Porticos founders and many of the first engineers came from the cell phone industry. Our continued growth allows Porticos to add engineers from leading companies focused on machine design, medical product design, and drug delivery systems, among other specializations. This diversification in resource background and experience allows Porticos customers to improve their products by tapping into a broad, multi-market knowledge base, taking advantage of an opportunity that few other firms can offer.
In the future, Porticos will continue to build a reputation for excellence and awareness in the medical and energy system market segments while staffing growth responsibly, avoiding the common pitfalls that can affect larger organizations.
