Tipton Design and Engineering announced a partnership with Tartan Marine, a builder of handcrafted boats.

Tipton started doing design work with Tartan on its new T4000.

"We set up a desk at their Painesville facility and started designing components with them with the idea that we would manufacture the parts, as well," Tipton president Roger Tipton said in a statement. "We invested in their design process, which reduced their costs, and we in return were able to bid on and win new business. It was really a win for everyone."

Tipton, based in Solon, Ohio, is a worldwide provider of materials engineering services.
