Jim Biros Celebrates 35 Years With Fredricks Design

Jim Biros Celebrates 35 Years With Fredricks Design

Today is an epic day! 

Today, we celebrate 35 years of excellent work with Jim Biros. “Jimmy” joined our startup on June 3, 1985 after a brief interview. Our vetting process, at the time, was limited to a quick check list.

Over the decades, many of our clients have requested (demanded) Jim’s involvement on projects. Jim has made a big impact on our business and every project he has worked on, from the early days of a drawing board, to now with CAD and almost every software language known to the design world. In addition to Jim’s design skills, he is very capable at building mockups and prototypes.

I could go on and on… Jim, we could not have grown the company without your contribution to our work and we owe you a huge thanks for your positive attitude and can-do spirit! You have made a positive and significant impact through your hard work over the past 35 years! Thank you!

We are proud of the company we’ve built together and look forward to the future…wherever it takes us!

Fredricks Design, Inc. — A Startup 35 Years in the Making

This year marks the 35th anniversary of Fredricks Design, Inc. This is a success story founded on vision, collaboration, and our commitment to producing top-notch industrial design and engineering work for some of the world’s best companies. We have been fortunate to work with great client teams, and we are just getting started.

The spark of a vision for our firm was ignited over tapas and drinks in El Puerto Santa Maria, Spain. We returned from Spain in 1984 with visions of creating something new.

Later that year in 1984, Fredricks Design was started in the city we still live and work in today, Grand Haven, Michigan. Brothers Maury Fredricks and Bruce Fredricks started the company with hard work, good luck, and loyalty to our wonderful clients. Well-equipped with knowledge, design and engineering experience, and a deep commitment to doing things well, the company refined its skillset and made many enhancements to the team throughout these past 35 years to create the incredible company we are today.

What Has Changed in the Past 35 Years?

Starting with a few clients in the automotive and furniture industries, to our recent work on themed entertainment rides and props, autonomous vehicle interiors, advanced seating, consumer products and more, we’re proud to continue our work with some of the most demanding companies in the world. Over the past 35 years, we have seen worlds of change in the design and engineering industry through technological influence, globalization and industry advances.

From designing on manual drawing boards with pencils and velum to the introduction of cell phones into the workforce, and now to a fully computerized network of design and engineering tools, Fredricks has evolved and grown from a two-person team to eight core team members and a dozen consultant designers and engineers working together with a commitment to excellence in our work.

We have expanded our core capabilities through partnerships with excellent suppliers and build resources to bring our projects to reality. We love working with our partners through every step of the design process. When it comes to our clients, we provide the engineering details that bring concepts to the next level. Over the years, our clients and teams have trusted us with their projects and in doing so, have become our family.

What is Next for Fredricks Design?

We are now moving into our fourth decade of family-run, second-generation design and engineering projects. We are truly blessed to be in this business working with our sons and our fantastic team!

Please join us in our celebration of this key milestone for Fredricks Design. We offer a world of thanks to all of our clients, advisors, suppliers, and team members for making our success possible over the past 35 years. What a journey!

We cannot wait to see what lies ahead for the future of design and engineering innovation and for Fredricks Design, Inc. There are always problems and challenges that need to be solved, and we will use our 35 years of experience, combined with our continued ambition to keep pushing for innovative, creative ways to help develop those solutions!
