Our Story

In 2015, Platform88’s co-founders put their factories together under one roof to create a “platform” for innovators and startups to design, engineer, manufacture, and distribute innovative products. Platform88 has become a portal for startups and crowdfunding campaigns to access the resources and expertise of the Chinese manufacturing industry. In just a few years, Platform88 has worked with 200+ startups to design, engineer, manufacture, and distribute their products.

Lifestyle & Events


We warmly welcome you to visit our Facebook and Instagram accounts.
We post frequently to give you a sense of who we are as individuals and how we operate as a company. We’d like you to get a chance to know us before we ever start working together, so aside from photos of equipment and machinery, we make an active attempt to share our holidays, lifecycle events, team meetings, and customer visits when appropriate.
