What our clients say

Our clients tell us that we create devices that “almost defy the laws of physics” and deliver “out-of-the-ordinary engineering capability”.

How we work

We know that outsourcing can seem daunting. We’ve honed our processes to make sure we’re easy to work with, minimising risk and enabling effective collaboration.

We can help at every stage, from technology consulting and concept strategy, through to full product and service development. 

Discover

Our clients look to us for breakthrough innovations that will transform their business.

To provide this consistently, a structured approach to innovation is required. We have developed processes and tools that minimise the time to create breakthrough ideas, allowing our clients to stand out in their markets.

Conceive

Market-leading breakthroughs don’t happen by accident. We apply a combination of creativity and science-led design so that products and services reach their fullest potential.

We perform robust feasibility analysis to establish what’s possible, minimise risk and provide greater budget and timescale confidence.

Support

Once a design is completed, that’s just the start of its life in the market – especially for services.

We provide comprehensive support of designs into operation to minimise problems during launch, then supply ongoing enhancement throughout the lifecycle.

Realise

Once a design is agreed, every day that it’s not on the market is a day of revenue lost.

We’ve honed our development, test, NPI and supply chain processes to provide fast and reliable realisation, over the 400+ projects that we undertake each year.

Our people

We employ the brightest minds in engineering, science and design.

Passionate problem-solvers, experienced specialists and revolutionary thinkers, our team exists to make a real difference.
