Dawn VME Products recognizes that the success of any technical product is the foundation from which it is engineered. Dawn's Engineering Team possesses over hundreds of years of combined experience and utilizes the most current design techniques in the creation of our products. Dawn invests heavily in R & D, the results of which are a continuous stream of new and improved products.

Dawn has dedicated custom program managers (CPM) whose objectives are to ensure that pre-sales RFQ and post sales documentation for all non-standard or custom products are complete and accurate. These CPMs act as a single point of contact for all customer product and program issues. They also coordinate all internal program related efforts, relay changes and upgrades to the design team, discuss possible improvements to the design with our customers, and rally the required resources for the completion of custom product applications.

Dawn provides customers an in-depth and broad range of system and product knowledge and expertise coupled with the latest tools in design and manufacture to enable fast turn-around, competitively priced, quality design, manufacturing and support of a wide range of custom requirements.

We can modify our existing platforms, or incorporate your requirements into a customized solution for prototyping and development. We are dedicated to maximizing customer satisfaction through on-time delivery of zero-defect products.
