We have a singular focus and that is to strengthen community through creating lasting companies and inspired products.


Our Mission

Our mission is to develop locally owned and operated businesses who export innovative products that have a positive impact on their local and national economy. We have created a world-class facility and made it open to the public so that everyone can see how products are created and get their products to market. In addition to developing great products for our customers, we also serve the community by offering the Wild Manta facility as also a local hub for small businesses hold seminars, business meetings, expos, product launches and many other events that promote local businesses. This allows any business or any person with a passion for sharing their knowledge within our community an opportunity to share what they know or offer regardless of age.  We believe that we have the best customers around, as they are all inspired, motivated, and willing to help each other, and we would love for you to join the team!

Starting a business is like riding a roller coaster...Except you are strapped to the front!
— Tim Reynolds, Wild Manta, LLC


Wild Manta grew out of a passion to serve the community in a way that builds long-term value and relationships that will last a lifetime, all while building the local economy. We saw so many local companies (both large and small) striving to develop new products and having to piece-meal out the design of their product, or failing because they did not have access to a robust support structure. We believe that what we are offering is unique in the area and one of only a few in the country. We're especially unique in that we do not limit ourselves to exclusively high-tech products - we work in multiple domains including electronics, sporting goods, medical devices, and craft/toy areas.

The founders of Wild Manta have deep roots in corporate and product development in the commercial, retail, and government areas. Combined, we have developed hundreds products/projects that have sold tens of thousands of these products. We are pleased to work with entrepreneurs and corporations to develop, transition technologies, and build multi-year product road maps that create a legacy. We take pride in the fact that Wild Manta is a friendly place for product design while remaining absolutely serious about bringing value to each and every customer.

To make sure we create the absolute best products out there, we don't try to do it alone. We work with an extensive network of legal, financial, branding, marketing, design, manufacturing and distribution partners in order to achieve excellence. We have carefully chosen every one of our partners because they are like-minded in their passion for the customer, their work ethic, and their desire to build your company and our economy.
