Survival Innovations leverages design and development experience in the preparation of detailed manufacturing processes and integrated work instructions. We use the same meticulous approach whether we are producing a complicated Critical Safety Item or a simple build-to-print order.
Survival Innovations personnel, equipment, tooling, and supplier network are capable of handling short-run or long-term manufacturing. We can offer a quick turn-around of high-fidelity mockups or rapid prototyping. Our planning, cutting, sewing, assembly, and inspection personnel have experience in manufacturing products to both military and commercial specifications.
We provide critical hardware assembly with serialized traceability when required. And our team can perform ultimate load testing and both destructive/non-destructive testing.
