Custom Development Process

From concept to commercialization we’re with you at every step.

Our product development process is collaborative from start to finish and is rooted in the principles of Design for Manufacturability (DFM) so that your custom glass solution is produced as efficiently and flawlessly as possible. Whether you are redesigning an existing product, starting with just a proverbial napkin sketch-or somewhere in between, the Kopp team will support your custom project from design to delivery and beyond. Here’s a look at the steps we take to ensure your project’s success.


We learn all about your project and get an in-depth understanding of your needs, project goals, application requirements, and any other information pertinent to your project’s success.
