What We Do At MicroTools
We make companies successful! Did you know that most new product launches fail? The Harvard Business Review reports that 70-80% of all new products fail. Looking back over our 30+ years, we have been privileged to work on a lot of new products. Sometimes designing the entire product; sometimes just the hardware; and sometimes just the software. Of the 50 new products that we have designed for our customers, 43 have made it in the market place. That is amazing. Check out our History page and see what we have done. Find out how we can help you by calling or emailing us today.
We make our clients successful by providing embedded systems designs throughout New England and the Northeast. Although we have done business outside of the Northeast, when you design hardware and systems, it is so much easier when you are within driving distance from your client.

Why Hire MicroTools?
Brick and Mortar – Here to Stay
Not many things are built to last these days. MicroTools is a company that was built to last. We define, develop and deliver embedded systems that last. Our company, located in Simsbury, Connecticut, has been in business since 1988 and has lasted through several economic down-turns. Products that we designed are still operational decades after they were first conceived. Read more about our history.

Building Long-Term Relationships
At MicroTools, we work hard at creating and fostering a solid, long-term relationship with our customers. As many may know, starting up a new contractor on a project or product can be a headache. Making new contacts, aligning expectations, building trust, promoting a positive rapport, climbing up the learning curves, all take time and energy.
It is our goal to develop a relationship with our customers for the long haul.
With each new customer, we develop an understanding of your unique ideas, situations, and approaches; then build your trust with professional results. We have many customers who have been with MicroTools for many years, and who keep coming back to have us design their next product. Gives us a call and see what we can do for your business too.
