"Fredrick's design brought a needed sophistication to our product development team. Their involvement in the entire process including time management, sourcing, market research and engineering support all helped Indiana Furniture stay on track for delivering the product to the marketplace. The Fredrick's team members on our project took a sincere interest in our needs and capabilities with an understanding that our success would be mutual success. I considered them a very good partner in our Felix chair project and their involvement with our organization improved our internal capabilities through the process they implemented for the project."

Mike Blessinger, Indiana Furniture

"I was really impressed with the work of your team. With some outsources it seems like we have to put a lot of time into managing the project, sometimes to a point where we wonder if we should have just done it ourselves. This was definitely not the case with your team. You were able to understand and initiate the project quickly and produce good output right away. I appreciated your confidence in your work and the ability to ask the right questions to set direction. Communication was effective and never a concern for this project. Presentation was very good and aligned extremely well to what we asked for. We were very pleased with the project outcome and have full confidence in entrusting new projects to the Fredrick's team."

Chris Harmelink, Johnson Controls, Inc.

"ODL is a very curious company with an appetite for innovation. We often rely on outside partners to help us see things differently and bring us to a new level of awareness...especially as we begin to explore new problem areas. We are particular with whom we choose to work with. Finding resources who will provoke our thinking is no easy task. We feel fortunate to have found and partnered with Fredrick's Design. They are exactly what we were looking for!"

Barb Herman, ODL

"This was my first time working with Fredricks Design as a contract design house. I must say that I have been impressed with the Fredricks team. They caught on very quick to the project details, design parameters, expectations & deliverables. The project was not a typical design execution, there was a fair amount of design innovation expectations. The Fredricks team came up with several ideas for the center seat and as a team we selected the most appropriate solution. Once we achieved that key milestone, Fredricks went to work on 3D CAD design of STO and metals with speed and efficiency. 2 weeks after project kickoff, 3D CAD design was delivered to JCI to start fabrication. As this phase of the project progressed, the Fredricks team supported with info and studies as needed. Looking forward to Fredricks team continued support until the Buck and Seats is delivered to the 2015 NAIAS."

Yannis Poulos, Johnson Controls, Inc.

"As a leader in the retail store environment, Harbor Industries has worked extensively with Fredricks Design to push the boundaries of products and services, and to discover new and exciting solutions. The team at Fredricks provided excellent support for all aspects of our product development needs, from ideation through execution. I highly recommend their services!"

Greg Hankamp, Harbor Industries

"I always enjoy working with you and your team. Your team really cares about and focuses on developing great product solutions. You also do a great job communicating via e-mail, phone, webex, etc. to make the physical distance almost non-existent and keep the project moving forward. Your support has been invaluable to us this year and helped make two difficult programs possible."

"I just wanted to say thanks for all your help, support, and patience this year. You helped make several programs a success and continue to set the benchmark."

Eugene Sobieski, Johnson Controls, Inc.

"I just wanted to say thank you for all the work you have done for us. You were called in at the 11th hour to rescue us on a very difficult project. This week we have made great progress and your support is really beginning to get the project moving again, your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Peter."
