Custom Prototyping in Action

As custom prototype manufacturers, we see countless consumer good projects arrive at our desk. Lee Buboltz’s project at Moving Target, Inc. was no exception. His idea received all the necessary attention from our team, guiding his project from the creation of an initial concept to final production. From big-time players in the consumer goods industry to small-time inventors, we treat each project as an opportunity to create a unique custom prototype in a timely fashion with first-class service.

Working closely with Buboltz, we were able to take his idea and provide design, tests and tooling for his groundbreaking handheld clay target thrower — a process we use for all the businesses we serve. By working with him on his vision, we were able to deploy our custom prototyping service and get his target thrower to the sporting goods market.


Turning a dream into reality is no easy task! It calls for many unique skills and a real desire to go far beyond what others do. I was looking for a single source who had the technical skills and abilities I needed to take my idea from initial concept all the way to production. I found vendors who could do one thing well but were unable to go beyond their area of expertise.

After a long search, I found Schmit Prototypes as the company that was able to provide what I was looking for. I came to them with an initial concept of a new type of handheld clay target thrower for the sporting goods market. They were able to provide the experience and skills to take a new idea from idea to reality all in one location. I was very impressed with their abilities in design, prototyping, testing, tooling, and production. They were fantastic to work with and helped me each step of the way. They made sure each process flowed smoothly into the next. Schmit Prototypes helped me develop a product that not only looked great but one that could be produced in the real world. In dealing with other vendors I received second-class service. I was a small inventor and not given the same amount of attention and service as their larger accounts.

I can truly say the team at Schmit Prototypes provided outstanding service from day one on my project. They showed a sincere interest in my project from the beginning and that same level of service and dedication carried through until the project was complete. It has been a great experience working with a dedicated technical team who knows what it is doing at each stage of a process. Schmit Prototypes have given me great advice and service, which has allowed me to make my dream a reality. I highly recommend Schmit Prototypes to my peers and would recommend them to anyone with a project that needs to be on time and on budget!
