Engineering Product Development Firm Is Serious About Planting Roots In The Bay Area

SEATTLE, Aug. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Synapse San Francisco is hosting “We’re Here To Play” on August 9, an office launch party to celebrate its inaugural year in the Bay Area. Synapse SF, which opened November 2011, has enabled the Seattle-based firm to work more closely with its clients and partners in the Bay Area and be a key engineering resource for Silicon Valley and beyond.

“We’re throwing this party as a way to officially introduce Synapse to the Bay Area tech community,” says Dylan Garrett, Director of Business Development for Synapse SF. “The party will be a chance to meet our new neighbors in a casual setting and thank the ones who have already been so welcoming to us.”

Synapse is one of the few engineering companies of its size to offer multi-disciplinary, turnkey collaboration for product development solutions. This has allowed Synapse SF to quickly establish itself as a key player in a community where breakthrough products demand innovation, creative engineering, design integrity, and problem solving, from concept through manufacturing and beyond.

“Right now is a particularly exciting time to be in the product development business, especially in the Bay Area,” says Synapse CEO and co-founder Scott Bright. “Consumer awareness has significantly raised the bar for products that are both well-designed and well-built. Synapse has always worked closely and strategically with our partners. Having a presence in the Bay Area allows us to strengthen those relationships and establish new ones in the heart of technology innovation.”

Sean Murphy, Director of Engineering Services at Smart Design’s San Francisco office, says that in a competitive product market, companies are looking for a seamless end-to-end development process. Murphy adds, “Having Synapse for neighbors in the Bay Area improves our already strong collaborative relationship. We can comfortably support cutting-edge technology projects knowing we can assemble the full team easily and quickly.”

Synapse SF marks the company’s first move toward sustainable business expansion. In keeping with Synapse tradition, Garrett says he’s dedicated to upholding the company’s founding principle: that Synapsters dictate the culture.

“I want Synapse to be very much a part of San Francisco,” says Garrett. “It shouldn’t feel like a Seattle company, but rather an active member of the San Francisco community. Recruiting talent from the Bay Area has allowed Synapse SF to embrace the culture of the region in a way that feels natural. We’re excited to be a part of this vibrant and innovative region and are looking forward to working with all of the amazing individuals and companies here.”
