RPM are experts in tool design, tool manufacture, automation and custom tooling. With almost three decades in tooling production and an uncompromising commitment to excellence, we can create the tool you need.

Product Design

Collaborate with RPM and avoid lengthy delays in getting your product into the market place. We can provide a tailored service to meet your expectations within the agreed timeframe and price point.

We can enable any idea to be transformed into tangible and viable outcomes. We have the knowledge to take client concepts and turn them into a commercially usable product. RPM has developed products for a wide range of industries and dealing with critical product elements such as complex forms, dimensions, tolerances, finishes and materials are standard practise within our business.

We work collaboratively with our clients to understand the specific requirements, needs and philosophy ensuring a successful outcome.

Achieving the optimum design for a new product does not always mean creating the most elaborate and feature packed item, it is normally about creating an elegant and simple design that will perform the desired function in the market place. We use research and our in-house knowledge to identify the optimum function, aesthetics, ergonomics, manufacturability, and cost.

If you have a new concept, or are looking to facelift an existing product, please contact our sales team to discuss your tool design needs.

RPM’s tool design procedure is a structured process as we are committed to accuracy and quality:
