Press Release - Microart Services and Berlin KraftWorks Partnership Connects Innovation to Production
Microart Services, an Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) provider with four decades of experience, has joined forces with Berlin KraftWorks Inc. (BKW), an engineering firm that helps firms transform ideas into finalized products, to bridge the gap between ideation and volume commercial production.
Both companies recognise the challenges faced by innovators when going from their eureka moment to the commercialisation of that product. Between them they are able to provide a creative genius with support through every aspect of design, engineering, DfM (design for manufacture), supply chain planning and much more. They allow the brand behind the innovation to focus on product ideation and development, knowing they are being guided through each stage of the commercialisation of their solution. They focus on the ultimate goal of delivering a robust solution to the consumer that is both reliable, scalable and economic.
BKW co-founder, Matt Weller said, “there was a meeting of minds with Microart Services, recognising that while there is support for new tech, there is a lack of resources and preparedness for physical manufacturing”. Matt added, “we both see a real need for hands-on assistance, teaching, and a systems approach that aligns engineering and supply chain from innovation through to production.”
Microart CEO, Mark Wood commented, “working with BKW and their customers allows us to get manufacturing practices and supply chain strategy baked in at the design stage”, adding, “the two teams bring immense experience in engineering, design, supply chain design and much more to deliver innovative products to their end user markets with the minimum pain, minimum risk and maximum value”.
As part of their partnership, Microart Services and BKW are providing advice to help innovators get ready for manufacturing and scale in the form of articles and blogs as well as a forthcoming webinar, scheduled for June 29th at 3pm EST. Matt Weller and Peter Heuss of BKW along with Mark Wood of Microart Services will be providing advice in this online and on-demand event hosted and moderated by Forbes and Entrepreneur journalist, Philip Stoten. Spaces are limited, so please register for this must-see event for innovators wishing to bridge the gap between idea and delivery.

Aurea Technologies Inc. (Aurea) is the company behind the Shine Turbine, a portable wind turbine charger for handheld electronics. Aurea's mission is to provide clean energy independence and Shine’s patent-pending technology creates energy faster than any other portable renewable product currently on the market. The Shine Turbine is the first of a series of renewable microgrid products created by Aurea, to provide users freedom from the electrical grid. Aurea had created a working prototype of the Shine Turbine, but as a start-up, they were looking for guidance to establish their supply chain in preparation for production.
Aurea is currently finalizing the Shine Turbine technical design and preparing to launch directly to consumers through Kickstarter. The Kickstarter campaign launched in June 2021, it will be a 1-month campaign with a goal of selling 500-1000 units to backers. Once the campaign is over Aurea expects to have the final product in the backers’ hands within 3 months and then they will transition to selling the Shine Turbine through retail channels. The initial goal is to be set up to produce and ship 500-1000 units per quarter.
