Custom Manufacturing & Integration

Custom Manufacturing & Integration

Since 1988, MDI has been providing custom systems design and integration services. Our specialty is integrating the very latest COTS technology into advanced customer applications and quickly adapting its manufacturing processes, all while assuring quality, cost, and on-time delivery.


MDI can save your company money. There is a great deal of overhead involved in even a small-scale manufacturing operation. Launching a project to build custom systems at scale in a cost-efficient way requires floor space, build-up and tear-down time, dedicated personnel, knowledge, buying power, troubleshooting & returns, support, and many other important factors. When a project arises with a need for custom systems, consider letting MDI know your requirements and allow us to provide a quote.


When you work with MDI for your custom manufacturing and integration projects, you can be sure each product is being built following the industry's best manufacturing practices.

  • All solutions are designed around customer constraints. Customer collaboration is the key to quality.
  • Business processes and management oversight are enforced at every step.
  • Engineering and design documents are formal processes, revision controlled, recorded digitally, and permanently stored online for management, engineering, and customer review.

  • Each product design is documented with instructions and photographs, ensuring consistency from build to build.
