We are a Chicago based privately owned product development consultancy whose passion is to create products that generate high returns for clients through a focus on user satisfaction. A 50-year history is evidence of continually achieving and exceeding client needs and expectations within the medical, consumer and industrial fields.


HLB has been teaming with companies to design and develop products that run the gamut from high-end, high-tech industrial to low-margin, high-volume consumer categories. We have worked with companies both large and small, industry giants and start-up entrepreneurial firms and from all over the United States and abroad.

Our award-winning firm has stepped in contributing to every facet of the development process, including market research and strategy, industrial design, engineering (mechanical, electrical, software), as well as prototype services. And since every development project is different, HLB teams may be comprised of each of these disciplines, or just a few – depending on the client's needs. Our highly collaborative process has resulted in 400 patents assigned to our clients, 250 medical products created, as well as countless successful consumer and industrial products.
