Customer Testimonial

“Symmetrix gave us confidence to do something that had never been done before on such a large scale. From conceptualizing, researching and problem solving, to follow through with manufacturing and product – their project management started early on and continued through the whole project. We rely on agile partnerships so we can continue to focus on product development.
