Michael Pawson - Managing Director ReCoila Hose & Cord Reels
"Having a close relationship with our Sydney based industrial design house, Bortz Product Design, frees us up to focus on the sales and manufacturing processes for our hose reels, and hence compresses our development and production time. With the aid of 3D CAD, being able to see our reels fitting together accurately provides reassurance we are on the right track in new product development. We are the Australian specialists in custom made hose reels and therefore we often require new designs entailing very specific customer requirements. The fast turnaround from Gary and his deep understanding of our product allows us to manufacture completely custom made reels to tight deadlines, resulting in a solid, durable, beautifully designed product – and satisfied customers."

Kim Ryrie - Deqx
I've worked with several great designers over 30 years and Gary is one of the best. He was highly recommend by an associate and we've done about half a dozen designs since then. All have been stress free, on time and cost effective. An added bonus for us was Gary's ability to refer us to a new high quality yet 'best price' fabricator when our normal supplier couldn't meet an urgent deadline ... Five stars thank you Gary!
Charles Berelowitz - Chairman Nu-Lite Illuminated Signs Pty Ltd
"In your field of industrial design - you are "simply the best".
Richard Farr - Director Prompt-it
"Excellent service, speedy and reliable. We had no idea how the design process works and Bortz Product Design explained everything carefully and we felt safe. They were the only company we approached who managed to figure out how to have our design as single part. I was very impressed with your "out of the box" thinking. We look forward to our next industrial design project with you. 10 out of 10, thanks."

Ef Misoyannis - Director Electronics by Design
"I have used BPD on numerous occasions for electronics based projects over the last 7 years. Gary has proven to be very professional, efficient, creative and a pleasure to deal with. On one particular project, it was amazing what he achieved to get all the electronics to fit inside an enclosure in a compact and efficient way. I have no hesitation recommending BPD."
I have worked with Gary for many years and found him to be efficient and easy to work with in getting new design bottles done that deliver for my customers. I would recommend him on bottle design and he is particularly good on tight timelines when required.
