About Us

Summit Design Services, LLC was started in 2009 by Chuck Brodeur as a response to the growing number of companies looking to outsource some or all of their design work.  Many smaller companies simply don't have the consistent workload to employ large engineering staffs.Summit Design Services supports small to large companies to fill their development and test needs in the embedded product space.

SDS is operated in Rhode Island, though it also works with a network of independent designers in other regions (predominantly Massachusetts.)  Our close proximity to Boston insures that we have access to local sales and support staff from nearly every major electronic component manufacturer and distributor.  This allows us to leverage the knowledge of the suppliers, as well as have face to face meetings to negotiate the best terms for our customers.

We also have relationships with an extensive number of manufactures of circuit boards, systems, sheet metal, cables, packaging, etc.  We've worked with manufacturers throughout North America.  If going overseas makes sense for your product, we can help you with that as well.  

The bottom line is that SDS is committed to providing our customers with the very best service, regardless of the size of the company or scope of the project.
