Our Story

Fictiv was founded in 2013 to eliminate a major bottleneck in new product development: custom mechanical part sourcing.

The traditional process of finding, vetting, and managing suppliers, getting quotes, and tracking orders across many vendors is incredibly resource-intensive and fraught with miscommunication, delays, and mistakes. These barriers make hardware development a slow, painful, high-risk endeavor.

Fictiv has engineered a new approach — one that streamlines workflows to eliminate the barriers to innovation and unleashes the creativity of engineers.

How? We’ve built an intelligent custom manufacturing operating system, to deliver speed, connect you to a group of globally-networked and highly-specialized manufacturing partners, and ensure success by applying a team of dedicated and caring quality engineers, logistics specialists, supply chain managers, and customer success representatives. Come experience the Fictiv difference for yourself!
