The old fashioned way. In 2013, we met, we worked as a team of six to design and build a prototype vending machine for a unique food application, and we realized the initial value proposition of the Oat Foundry 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 have been growing in project scope and team size ever since.
For Product Teams
Sometimes you need a prototype to test your concept in a pilot study. We are your squad of mechanical, electrical, and computer engineers contemplating your problems, building your cool stuff, and supplementing your team. We have the tools in our shop to build anything. It’s what we love to do.
We love building products that solve problems and no industry is on the front lines for innovation more than food-service. We love helping everyone from Chefs to Owner Operators automate and improve. You want to buy a product that does not yet exist? We can help create that product.
For Creative Directors
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 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 photoeyes, LEDs, motors, reclaimed wood, and a bevy of cool materials and technology to make engaging installations and products that customers can’t help but notice.
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.
