Hot Products Engineering (HPE) is based in Pleasanton, California just over the hill from major universities, National Laboratories and Silicon Valley. These surroundings play an important role in efficiently developing new products, that is, being able to rely on an established, diverse community of technical bases. An entire product line or business entity can be completely built and launched within a 20 minute commute radius. On site design, CAD modeling, CNC prototyping, corporate branding and marketing are further complemented through working arrangements that span everything needed to handle intellectual property (patenting), rapid prototyping, hardware procurement, software, controls, manufacturing and packaging. Strong relationships with retail and wholesale distribution are also on tap for completing the cycle for selling new products for existing and emerging businesses. The companyâ€™s current models of success prove that an idea can quickly evolve into a profitable venture.
