Our objective is to transform our clients’ ideas into market-changing products or services by understanding the relevant factors, applying imagination through critical thinking, and focusing resources to create and increase value for users and industries.


Product Development Services Founded

Monte launched Product Development Services (PDS), primarily as an engineering company.  Due to his ongoing business relationships and client connections, PDS already had an established niche in the aviation industry, and Weber Aircraft became their first major client.



Point Innovation Incorporated

Due to foreseeable company growth, PDS became incorporated, and Monte became business partners with Darren Squires, an industrial engineer.



Industrial Design Services Offered

PDS expanded into its first brick and mortar facility in Addison, Texas.  They began offering industrial design services and working for the first time on medical-related product development.



Branding and Re-branding

PDS Development was re-branded and re-launched as Point Innovation.  In addition, they returned to an aerospace focus and resumed working on airline seat design for Weber.



Point Innovation Moves to Lakeway Pointe

Point Innovation expanded their headquarters by moving to a new 12,000 sq. ft. facility in Lewisville, Texas.  The new building provided ample space to support all of the services Point offers.



Point Innovation Re-branding

Point received a face lift both digitally and within our walls. We hope to work with you soon!
