Success Story: Drafting By Design

Published By: The Delaware SBDC

For nearly five decades, Drafting By Design (DBD), Owned and operated by Neil Brenner and Galdino Bahena, has been a leading provider of professional drafting and design services, offering a wide array of options. Whether it’s architectural drafting, 3D modeling, rendering, construction documents, or building information modeling (BIM), DBD delivers exceptional results.

Maria Freudenthal, an SBDC advisor, has played a vital role in guiding DBD on its journey toward success. In addition to assisting with the development of an updated formal business plan, Maria was instrumental in identifying various resources and programs that have benefited the company.

“Maria Freudenthal has been great! She not only assisted with getting our formal business plan updated, she made us aware of our eligibility for PPP loan and many SBA programs. She has provided countless hours of counseling, training, and other resources.” – Neil Brenner and Galdino Bahena, Drafting By Design

DBD recently announced a strategic move towards embracing popular technology. DBD made a significant investment in acquiring several additional 3D printers, enabling them to make remarkable advancements in their mechanical design capabilities. This decision has allowed the company to enhance its services and deliver even greater value to its clients.

With the newfound capabilities offered by these 3D printers, DBD can now bring digital models to life in a very short timeframe. This upgrade has allowed them to convert digital designs into tangible prototypes in only 24 hours. This rapid prototyping process has revolutionized DBD’s approach to their operations, enabling them to expedite the design process and produce multiple versions of projects easily.

As Drafting By Design continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible in drafting and design, they remain grateful for Maria’s ongoing support and the positive impact she has had on their business, “Maria has been great! She has been an asset to Drafting By Design.”
