History and origin of House of Design
The founders of House of Design kicked off a relationship rooted in robotics automation in 2008, designing and constructing an overhead gantry robotic assembly system for the Weyerhaeuser Company. Ben Blaine and Ryan Okelberry were mechanical engineers for the Weyerhaeuser Company, designing and integrating custom equipment for engineered lumber plants. Shane Dittrich was the lead robotics engineer for JLS Automation, the integration company for the project.  In 2011, the same team joined forces again at Transform Solar, creating a game-changing robotic pick-and-place system for SLIVER Solar Cell Technology. The team was officially incorporated under the name House of Design on July 1, 2012.

Since 2012, House of Design has provided engineering consulting services, robotic system and machine vision integration for industries such as aerospace, precision machined components, medical device, electronics, apparel and contract manufacturing organizations.
