Welcome to PDT!

We often hear: "Wow! I had no idea the depth of your capabilities or the size of your team" as clients walk through our headquarters outside of Chicago. Because many of you haven't had the opportunity to walk these halls with us, we thought we'd give you a peek inside here.


Our teams are always scouting for the latest trends and breakthroughs in all things product development: technologies, materials, methods... you name it.
You'll find us at industry events all over the world.

Jumping in:
We're out in the field right now!

We've set foot on most continents, watched surgical procedures,
attended classes with blind children, ridden in big-rigs,
sat in home kitchens and talked to soldiers.

'We take the unique insights we gain and leverage them to develop products that resonate with your stakeholders.


Our user experience design team begins every project with a goal: to deliver a delightful experience to the user that resonates before, during and long after use. They are working right now to build brands through great experience design.

in engineering, design, tooling and
model making work together every
day to make unbelievable products.

rigorous environments.
We put those designs through
our in-house test lab

clients need is what they get.

Our sourcing experts know the ropes. They have established relationships with the best vendors for all different types of projects.
