East West provides more than global manufacturing. We can help whether you already have a project being manufactured elsewhere and are looking for a new supplier, or you are looking to scale production. Managing projects from design to delivery, we take a concept, turn it into a design, manufacture the product to world-class standards and handle the entire logistics process delivering your products to your door.
By providing custom design and manufacturing solutions, our engineering team becomes an extension of yours. Working with a company providing both design and manufacturing service streamlines the transition from design to manufacturing. We can recommend design improvements, reduce manufacturing costs, enhance functionality and improve quality. Benefits of design services include cost analysis and reduction programs, SKU consolidation opportunities, reverse engineering and drop-in replacement products.
The Asheville Design Center (ADC) is integrated with its sister team in Atlanta to guide customers through the processes required to transition your product from concept to mass production as well as provide support for the development of products, custom components, jigs and test fixtures to drive efficiencies in manufacturing.

Our U.S.-based Engineering team works closely with you to make sure your goals are front and center. Through careful listening and experience, we translate your expectations into clear specifications to execute the manufacturing process to your quality standards. Our priority is delivering design options that make your product more manufacturing friendly while maintaining the functionality you need. Our team of engineers come from diverse industries, creating innovative solutions during the design phase and throughout the entire manufacturing process. Allowing our engineering team to review your product during the design stage, we can help make recommendations on technologies that will provide a competitive advantage, or solve a problem before going into production.
We use Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis software to demonstrate how air/water-moving systems respond to a variety of internal or external influences including increased or decreased flow, pressure, or temperature. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software is used to test and simulate product behavior before production. Our design engineering team evaluates these variables during simulation and reviews the impact of changes to existing designs. Using CFD or FEA gives you a clear picture of the way your design will perform without having to create multiple prototypes and physical testing. The result? CFD and FEA allow for a quicker time to market while helping to create a better performing product at the lowest cost.
Have a high-volume, fully-customized project? East West Design Services provides significant cost benefits to you.
