After spending 9 months in a capstone design program at Drexel University, working as a team of six to design and build a prototype vending machine for a unique food application, the initial concept of the company was duly vetted. With such a large project under our belts, the comfort level and motivation to begin this venture as a unique engineering company resulted, and less than a month later, Oat Foundry was born.
We interpret architectural drawings and bid on furniture, fixtures, and equipment. We develop and fabricate unique large scale installations.
We use software like SolidWorks, Adobe Creative Suite, and others to develop your designs, communicate plans, fabricate to published drawings, and install the finished product.
Get noticed! We use LEDs, reclaimed wood, and a bevy of cool materials and technology to make signage or products that customers can’t help but notice.
Sometimes you need a tech-y and cool physical experience to reach people. Sometimes it’s a gadget to captivate their imagination. Let us help start the conversation. Let us help build it.
We take an idea of a physical way to communicate your company’s message and turn it into reality. If you’ve ever said, “It’d be REALLY cool if we could do…” let us fill in the blank with design and development to help you build your cool idea.
We have the tools to optimize, analyze, fabricate, or prototype your design. Or come up with an entirely new one with some design direction. We speak your language, and work to understand the focus of your project.
