25 years of

History

Monte launched Product Development Services, PDS, primarily as an engineering company with an established niche in the aviation industry due to his already ongoing business relationships.

We expanded into our first brick and mortar facility in Addison, Texas in 1998. There we began offering industrial design as a service and started working, for the first time, on medical-related product development.

We continued to grow steadily and in 2002 we were re-launched as Point Innovation. Not too soon after, in 2001, we moved to a new 12,000 sq. ft. facility in Lewisville, Texas.

Several years later in 2022, our portfolio had grown quite a bit, so Point Innovation launched a brand new website. It was hand crafted to capture over 25 years of upwards change and progress and built by our team for you.

Please enjoy, thank you.
