you hire the engineers at Mechanical Engineering Professionals, LLC for
your contract projects, you are hiring some of the most skilled and
creative mechanical design engineers in the country. We perform work at
a senior level and have immense experience in most facets of mechanical
design, product design and development, automation and robotic systems,
and opto-mechanical engineering. We
are top professionals in our field and charge rates commensurate with
our level of skill.
However, we pride ourselves on offering
competitive rates. Most lawyers charge much more per hour for their
time. And because we are a smaller company, we don’t have large
overhead. Nor do we have a large office and big administrative staff.
These factors allow us to handle smaller jobs and price our services
much lower than many competitors.
We do not
have a flat rate structure unless we negotiate an hourly rate or set up
and bill for a time and materials contract. Our quotations
are mainly based on a proprietary formula that factors in the scope and
details of the design, which engineers and how many will be needed to
work on the design, and any risk or hazard that might be involved in
that type of work, among other factors.
Most projects involving
Mechanical Engineering Professionals, LLC
estimated at the rate of $140 per hour for a senior engineer and $90 per hour for a junior engineer.
