Insource-Project Management

Turn-key Project Development

Whether you just need a little advice or hand-holding, or if you are taking on more that you can handle and want to delegate the entire project to us, we can develop the entore project for you, keeping you informed of progress at all times. We can function almost as your in-house development team. We have 11 years of experience at one of the world’s most renowned product development organizations.


Supplier Management

We have a decade of experience understanding working closely with suppliers, and can keep on top of what they are good/not good at, anticipating and eliminating potential problems for a smooth development experience.


Supplier Sourcing

Do you need help finding suppliers for your components or services? Do you suspect you are not getting the best prices? Let us bid your project for you, and you will likely save money. It’s no risk to you for us to bid.



Multi-Axis milling and turning

Exceptional programming and machining to whatever tolerance you need. We specialize in close tolerance and multi-axis work.


Prototype Machining

Do you need prototype parts? No job is too small or too complex for us. No shop minimum.



We have full welding capability and attention to detail. Put our race car experience to work for you.


Contract Production Manufacturing and Assembly

Do you have more production that you can successfully handle? We can do the entire project for you- from machining to assembly to shipping


Mechanical Design

We can design your parts or assemblies with efficiency. Each of us will review each project, providing more perspective and a more efficient design.

Design for Manufacturability

We have extensive experience designing parts and assemblies for ease of production, whether your volume is 100/month or 100,000/month.


Product Development

We use efficient Japanese methods for product development to reduce overall development time and cost with the fewest complications.


SolidWorks Models/Training

We can make your models right the first time, whether it is a simple part, or a family of parts that you want to design using a spreadsheet to automate the design process.

We can also train your people in Solidworks at your site, whether it is a focused lesson on one topic, or an entire week of training to bring your people from square-one to productive.


Engineering Drawings

Do you need SolidWorks Drawings to go along with your models? We can prepare drawings for you that will be clear for the manufacturer.


Research/Feasibility Studies

Is your project worth doing? Will it work? We can help you know this as cheaply and quickly as possible. We are experienced, educated and open minded. Let that combination work for you and your project.



We love to do calculations. If we aren’t able to do the best possible job for you, we know enough about it to find someone to do it reliably for you. This way you won’t be throwing your money away on so-called experts that don’t care about your project.

About the Raven Knight Project Team

Raven Knight is focussed on achieving sustainability for all. The company’s main goal is to deliver a solid project that showcases the technology available through Raven Knight with the Sustainability Initiative. The project will be launched August 1, 2012 or before and it can be found at www.sustainabilityinitiative.org. The initiative will develop an affordable water and energy independent home to be used for affordable housing. It will incorporate the water recycling system that has been under development by Mahaffey Innovative Technologies, solar, atmospheric water generation, waste to energy through the use of a household gasifier, geothermal power, metering and much more.

Please feel free to contact us for more information and browse through the about us section to fund out more about our project partners as well as review the products and services we offer. Whether it be marketing support services or ordering an atmospheric water system, a portion of all revenue generated by Raven Knight will support the Sustainability Initiative.
