About Us

Company Overview

We identified the need for a design consultancy, which can offer the full range of design services from initial concept through to volume manufacture.

Previous experiences in industry highlighted certain shortcomings in industrial design, which provided effective results but failed to continue the design phase into manufacturing, considering value analysis and production engineering issues.

Our expertise lies with industrial design and practical engineering using the latest techniques and materials to provide solutions designed specifically for manufacturing to the proposed volumes.

With over 40 years experience in design and production engineering, we are confident we can overcome most manufacturing difficulties and provide real time and financial savings to our customers.

We are experienced in Mechanical, Electro-Mechanical and Electronic Design for many components and systems intended for general industrial, consumer, leisure, telecomms, automotive, medical and military markets.

How it Usually Works

Our clients usually come to us with a concept – and sometimes a few problems. It might be a new product for which they need a design that will perform well, look great, and won’t shatter the manufacturing budget.

Our job at this stage is to assess the practicality of the client’s expectations.

We rarely have to say, “Sorry, it can’t be done”, but we may well come up with a better way of achieving the required result. At the end of the brainstorming session, we’ll each have a clear picture of the way forward.

We help to keep costs down

PD Components was established to supply and manufacture component parts following their successful design and development.

We recognised the need in the market place for a company that could supply low cost components from the Far East to the smaller businesses, who find UK and EC costs too high and to reduce the traditionally long lead times for tooled components.

With many design projects, the smaller businesses find the cost of tooling and supply of bespoke components carry a too high a burden on their financial resources, resulting in many projects failing to reach production.
