What is Protoscale?

Protoscale re-launched in 2019 with a new vision.  After the initial launch in 2015 to help startups accelerate inventions, Protoscale is pivoting to focus on technology development services for established OEM's who want to accelerate commercialization of their new products.  The new focus is a result of direct feedback from Tapecon customers who work in the R&D function of their companies.  With the demand for more active and intelligent products, the time is now for Protoscale to align with Tapecon to provide customers a one-stop shop for technology development and contract manufacturing.

Tapecon and Protoscale share a common mission of "solving application challenges that enhance people's lives" and the Protoscale value of developing and advancing technologies combines well with Tapecon's value of providing outsourced manufacturing solutions. Learn more about Tapecon here.
