Design thinking – a mindset perfect for custom solutions
While many businesses can claim to have design capabilities, we’re committed to going further by putting it at the centre of our approach. Design thinking is more than just a skill set, it’s a mindset.
We believe that developing a high-quality custom solution requires engineers to think about design across the lifecycle of a project. This ensures that we’re not only bringing together the right combination of technologies but the necessary capabilities to deliver an end-to-end solution.
There are many forms a custom solution can take, and it’s not always a complete system integration.
At its simplest form, we can use our extensive knowledge and our strategic partners to identify a technology type, system, or a single component that perfectly meets the needs of a particular project. Where this is the case, we’ll design a programme to support you through the project lifecycle and guarantee its operational functionality. Using design to modify individual components allows our engineers to adjust the specifications of a technology. And where there isn’t a component that meets your needs, we can design a custom component that does.
It’s system integration where our engineers make the biggest impact – designing solutions that bring together multiple technologies and fitting them into your application.
Advanced technological capabilities
The design of custom solutions of any type requires the use of our advanced capabilities. Alongside a comprehensive technical design skillset for any technology, our expertise and experience include the design of programmes that ensure your project's objectives are achieved.
Any capabilities required to provide these programmes are delivered through our engineers based both in the field and within our technology centres – facilities we’re able to call on when access to state-of-the-art equipment is necessary. Ensuring we deliver an end-to-end solution covering prototyping, pre-production, manufacturing and upgrading. These comprehensive in-house solutions are supported by our ability to harness all of these elements. Alongside the expertise found within our strategic partners and combining them into the design process from the start of a project, to develop a fully customised design-led approach.
Why we're different
A design-led approach to custom solutions with a wide range of services and technical expertise at its core.
Based in the field or Technology Centres, our engineers are experts in their technology or applications.
With access to our advanced capabilities then together we can design advanced custom solutions.
Bringing together different specialisms to develop truly custom solutions is where we excel.
Full lifecycle support
With you every step of the journey, we’ll design programmes to meet your specific objectives.
We’re focused on collaborating with you to develop solutions that meet the specific requirements of their application or component.
With a blend of curiosity and innovation, our people are focused on understanding and integrating the latest technological advances. And the same values are applied to working with you – approaching challenges with an inquisitive and open mind before using our expertise and experiences to overcome the technical challenges.
The integration of technologies, components, and teams is vital to any successful custom solution project. And we’re committed to supporting you across the lifecycle of a component or application. That’s why we’ll identify the right partners and components to meet the needs of your project.
We have engineers across every technology, each supported by a dedicated Technology Centre. They can call on our strategic partners to develop leading-edge components and manufacturing capabilities. By successfully integrating people, products, and processes, we’re sure to produce positive outcomes.
When resource or capacity is limited, you can depend upon our knowledge and dedicated Technology Centres to support you from concept through to production.
We provide access to a large range of specialist services and capabilities across our specialist technologies, enabling you to build tailored solutions and bring your concept to reality. Discover how we can support you through our dedicated centres.
