Micatu is a forward-thinking, collaborative organization that bridges the gap between people and technology producing measurable results

What is the micatu differential?
People, Technology and Professional Services. Micatu provides true “holistic solutions." From using our technical subject matter expertise to performing extensive market-driven research, Micatu validates the entire risk-reward ecosystem of the proposed solution ensuring risk mitigation at every stage of the project.
  • Each of our engagements is comprised of a team of subject matter experts – many with 25 years of high-tech industry experience, working at all levels of your organization
  • We specialize in providing clients with “hands-on” services. We actually do the work, not recommend the work be done
  • We limit the costs of the engagement by immediately performing root cause problem determination and developing actionable plans to address and prioritize issues
  • We maintain a vast network of experienced senior executives and technical consultants who are ready to engage if “called to action.”

Business Consulting


Our Business Consulting Services group works with our clients to transform thoughts, processes and innovation into "New Products or Services"



We specialize in working with companies that are underperforming, have lost key executives or are contemplating or emerging from bankruptcy. Micatu is really different! We collaborate with our clients, providing the tools, management and expertise that allows an organization to execute on their core strengths and values. Our approach is different from many "Lean Start-Up" methodologies as we physically validate your strategy and markets.

Once validated, Micatu then employs our proprietary “Perfect Storm” methodology that confirms market demand, cash flow and risk/reward using over 30+ years of commercial development and sales execution experience honed in private industry. In summary, we combine “best of breed” business and technology strategies to accelerate business value and deliver a differentiated customer experience with “real world” measureable results.

Precision Prototyping


Micatu Precision Prototyping Services offers rapid prototyping, ranging from Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) to Simultaneous 5-axis machining services



Using the latest technologies available, we are one of a handful of companies that can provide early conceptual prototypes all the way to production parts; all while offering a large selection of materials. Our FDM prototyping services can provide parts with extremely complex inertial geometries, not possible with traditional machining.
