“Encoris is amazing! I have worked with many vendors to build models for demo purposes. Not only are they incredibly quick to respond to inquiries, they are there to help you everystep along the way.

Jim is great at showing you new technologies they have, sending pictures, quotes, and ensuring he has all the information he needs to get the job done perfectly. He is always looking for ways to improve the models and extend their life, as we all know workshop models can get pretty beat up. The clear acrylic models I received looked amazing; the color logos printed on the bases looked so sleek and really popped. I didn’t want to send them out to our rep I wanted to keep the for our office! I would recommend Encoris to anyone looking for high quality models with superior customer service to accompany them!

Megan Mac Donald I Project Manager, K2M

I’ve been in field sales for 20+ years with Smith & Nephew. We’ve had a variety of models built and sent out into the field…this is by far the classiest and most well-received knee model I’ve ever seen.

The surgeons also appreciate the models and can’t get enough of them!

Matt Krebbs I Knee Sales, Knoxville, TN

We built a one-of-a-kind product franchise. Products were complex, novel, and proprietary. To be succesful, you overcame many business and technology obstacles to deliver world class products.

The medical community’s response was beyond expectation! The tactile performance and clinical utility of the models was superb. Within the first year of introduction, these products became market leaders, responsible for the training and education of thousands of healthcare professionals worldwide.

VP Marketing

The demo kits, the ones we did for MIVO, are the nicest in the industry!

I’d like to continue down that path.
