What we do:
Design, develop,
deliver

Our expertise

Over 80% of the projects we have worked on in the last 24 months are in production. We design, develop and deliver commercially viable concepts to market. Typically projects are delivered in 3 phases of development.

Design: For inventors and start-ups to gain interest and develop their business plans.

Design and develop: For start-ups and companies to have a market ready design to either seek further investment, or take the design through their own manufacturing channels.

Design, develop and deliver: For companies wishing to take the concept through production and to market through their own distribution channels.

Design

Evaluate

You can make anything, but only marketable products sell. For over 17 years we have taken our clients products to market in parallel with manufacturing and distributing our own products. This gives us a wealth of first hand insight into making a product marketable. We have a tried and tested process which has not only helped many businesses, but is recommended by the British Library to help start-ups and is delivered in a monthly workshop that we host there.

Patent and IP

What to protect and when? Is the most important question regarding IPR. (patent, registered design trademarks). For over a decade we have worked very closely with a select number of IP attorneys who specialise in different fields. We engage their services very early on, not just to search, but to help plan what can be protected and the strategy to integrate it into the development plan.

Concept

To ensure the right concept is being developed, several must be explored and evaluated. It is not a design exercise of seeing different styles and executions, it is a broader exercise in seeing how the product benefits the user, how it can satisfy everyone in the supply chain. The concept development process ensures we have explored every product solution to create the best user experiences and sets up the development of a commercially viable product.

Develop

Detail

Once the concept is defined, we have evaluated some rough scale rigs and are satisfied we have a strong concept that will delight the customer, we take the design into 3D and explore all the component parts. during this stage the design takes on its final form and operation.

Prototype

Typically, we make dozens of prototypes during the life of a project. We do not start a meeting or design session without one. It is the most important communication tool. We have a diverse and extensive supply base cultivated over 20 years to deliver the wide variety of prototypes we design.

Cost

It is one thing to draw up concepts, but designing a product that can be made to production cost targets is a different ball game. We work with our manufacturing teams in the UK, EU and in Asia,relationships we have had for over 10 years.

We also work with the established manufacturing teams of our clients. Always working hard to help design on cost.

Deliver

Engineer

Making a one off prototype is very different to a production run. Throughout the development phase we are always considering materials, their manufacturing processes and assembly. Often we work as a wider team integrating any electronics, mechanics or software into production ready handover package.

Manufacture

We can work with your manufacturer or we can work with an accredited manufacturer from our network which operate in many industries. We will help you make an informed choice of manufacturer, selecting one that can offer a cost-effective service, with acceptable lead-times and payment terms.

Production

With the preferred manufacturer on board, we can help you weigh up the production options to ensure you receive the best value possible. We will be there when the production tools are made and tested. We can also manage the outsourcing of manufacturing and often oversee the production process from beginning to end, closely monitoring the output for quality, consistency and punctuality and re-negotiating contractual terms if necessary.
