Specialist materials knowledge can often be the key to successful product development and innovation. Our team of engineers, metallurgists, materials scientists and chemists have many years of experience of product development in the materials manufacturing and processing industries. We are able to work with our clients’ development personnel, and apply our knowledge as part of your team. Alternatively, we are just as happy to work to a defined project brief.
The majority of our work in this area involves some degree of laboratory based testing, analysis or characterisation. Because our consultancy team have direct access to our comprehensive laboratories for testing and analysis we are able to integrate laboratory based investigation with our consultancy services. Not only does this reduce turnaround time but it also enables our consultants to work flexibly, gleaning detailed information from lab performance.
