Innovation begins with a vision, and we are here to bring your ideas to life. Working only with quality suppliers we trust, our team of skilled designers, engineers, and craftsmen help you develop your idea into a prototype. Our vast knowledge of materials, processes and engineering expertise means that we can tailor the best approach for your needs. With our prototyping capabilities, we can empower you to explore, refine, and validate your designs before they reach production.
What are prototypes for?
Validate your product idea by making a real, working model and receive helpful feedback from test users.
Make it easier for potential investors and customers to understand your vision by showing them something real and tangible.
Prototyping is a cost-effective way to edit and confirm your product’s design before investing in expensive tooling.

Our large purpose built workshop is well-equipped to help our team develop new things. It’s not a fabrication or jobbing shop; it’s a prototyping lab where our projects really come to life. We bring parts together from our suppliers all over the world, to assemble, test and put the finishing touches on prototypes.
If you visit our workshop, you may also find the team building test jigs, fixtures, mock-ups, proof of concept prototypes or doing testing of some sort. We also do the occasional small batch assembly run. It really is a multipurpose space.
The most valuable thing about our workshop, however, is that it enables us to learn by making stuff and experimenting with new materials and processes. We love trying news ways to solve problems and using a hands on approach of build, measure, learn is how we are able to truly innovate. Our Designers and Engineers are not stuck behind a computer screen all day. They are in and out of the workshop making stuff, breaking stuff and constantly innovating.
In-house 3D Printing
The ability to 3D print in-house is a hugely empowering tool for us to accelerate our design process. We have three FDM machines constantly in use and aiding us in our innovation. We are able to turn our CAD designs quickly and easily into a real physical parts, allowing us to learn and refine our designs with less time and cost!
We are also able to produce small batches of parts, production jigs and fixtures, parts for test rigs, and all sorts of other useful stuff.
