Intellivation Fort Collins
Our on-site manufacturing equipment includes helium leak detection, CNC and conventional machining equipment, welding equipment, and precision, clean final assembly and test areas.

Since our inception, we have designed, built, and delivered millions of dollars in custom equipment in the areas of thin film vacuum coating and flexible solar module manufacturing, for customers in the USA and in Europe (we have experience with CE certification of our products).  Our customers, which include both lab scale R&D operations and 24/5 production companies, enjoy the competitive prices and responsive service that we offer because of our relatively small size and low overhead.  We are engineers at heart and enjoy developing efficient, innovative solutions for our customers.  We believe that we are successful only when we help you succeed.
