Ed Carlson

The November 25th meeting of the Jackson Inventors Network will feature Ed Carlson, president and owner of ENCarlson Enterprises LLC, a product design and development services firm based in Ann Arbor, MI.

How do I prototype my invention? Every inventor should validate their new product concept with a prototype! But where does an inventor turn when their concept requires sophisticated knowledge of mechanical or electrical technologies, or perhaps control software? Learn the answer at the next JIN meeting.

Ed Carlson leverages more than 30 years of industry experience, together with a skilled network of designers, engineers and global supply resources, to deliver quality designs and engineered products for businesses, entrepreneurs and inventors. Formerly, Carlson worked as an engineer for Pratt & Whitney (Florida), Director of Manufacturing for Stirling Thermal Motors (Ann Arbor), and President and CEO of Cenco Inc. (Minnesota).
