No Photos, Please...

Akrapovic understands the role of proprietary information, intellectual property and how important it is to manage the message surrounding rollout of a new brand.  As a result, we were not able to take photos during the facility tour.  

That's too bad, because I would love to show the folks at the Tech Valley Center of Gravity developing our Rapid Prototyping Center!  The facility is appealing.  It's obvious real work gets done, but it's very clean.  They have a Stratasys 3D Printer.  I was pretty excited to see it running, even if I couldn't tell what was printing.  Their ceramic process is interesting.

I was surprised and impressed to learn that Akrapovic has branched out into medical titanium prototyping. It's pretty cool to think that maybe my mom's new "bionic knee" was once a design in their facility!

Akrapovic presents a unified brand identity, despite aspirations into many more different production fields.  Everything, from the conference room, to the logo'd (but still cool) clothing employees wore, to the Lifestyle Magazine demonstrates a lot of thought and effort.

And wasn't it cool to hear a demo of the sound tuning on Mr. Akrapovic's car?

A fantastic visit!
