British Engineer Gordon Styles founded Star-Prototype in 2005. Gordon was one of the founders of the UK RP industry and previously owned STYLES RPD on Teesside. Gordon had a goal to create an RP company in China that would operate at the very highest global standard. Star-Prototype now employs over 100 people in a 35,000 sq. ft. factory and has sales of GBP6M in the Chinese Garden City of Zhongshan.
100% inspection of product prior to shipment is a very valuable feature of the STAR service. STAR has 10 full-time inspectors and QC engineers and has invested over GBP 180,000 alone in inspection equipment to ensure that the product being shipped is in accordance with the specification. This includes a FARO Laser Scanning arm for checking 3D shapes; a 600mm CNC optical projector with Renishaw probe for batch inspection; an Oxford Instruments OES spark testing machine; and an XRF gun for metallurgical and RoHS testing.
