Our latest collaborations are re-imagining what it means to be an engineering partner while bringing truly ambitious ideas to life.


Reducing costs and emissions through material expertise

 A complex challenge that required a simplified solution

Our experts produced a self-lubricating plastic solution that not only delivered to our customer’s needs, but also resulted in a lighter plane with a lower risk of failure and reduced maintenance requirements. This in turn led to better fuel efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions, which helped create a more sustainable aircraft.

Reducing recalls through more reliable materials

Accelerated market delivery achieved through expertise and testing

We helped our customers develop proprietary wind turbine solutions that helped shorten their testing regimes, reducing costly time to market delays and eliminating unnecessary replacements of faulty parts. In addition, our use of high-performance engineering plastics created significant cost savings both at initial purchase and during use.
