About Us

Since formation in 2006 we have had the joy, excitement and privilege of working with some of the most iconic and respected names and companies in the automotive and technology industries.

We have a process-driven methodology, whether working with new or established customers. Such phase methodology ensures that projects move smoothly from ideas to design, through prototyping and into production. Creativity is never stifled; we believe that there are no bad ideas, just those that need refining or repositioning. We enjoy working alongside our customers giving them the courage to innovate.

Our team of product and automotive design engineers, CAD engineers, project managers, quality assurance engineers and production team are all focused on providing an On-Time-In-Full service to our customers. Whether designing and developing within our usual product range or stretching our “innovation envelope” with a technology startup, we maintain close control on the process to ensure minimal risk and maximum result.
