  • Our product range has evolved through acquisition so had a very disparate look. Our latest launch, our biggest ever, gave us the opportunity to put some design thought into the range and then follow it through everything we do. Although our products are for industrial use it’s important that they look like the ground-breaking pieces of engineering that they are. DesignEdge’s great understanding of our sector and also the way they bring good looks into a design – often pushing the boundaries further than we would have considered in-house – has resulted in a fantastic looking range of which we can definitely be proud and stand out from the competition.”

  • Good design is now a lot more important to opticians, due to the competition. It’s now good to have nice looking equipment to let customers know that you provide a quality service. Our equipment now fits in nicely with the other equipment that opticians have in their practice. It’s been very well received in the industry. In fact so much so that we are now looking to modify other products using the techniques we have learned. I really believe it is the best union of form and function.”

  • We engaged DesignEdge Cambridge Ltd over the course of three iterations of our in-ear headsets (our Biometric headset, Qualcomm TrueWireless Earbuds and sports wired version of the Qualcomm TrueWireless Earbuds). Our engagement lasted several months and resulted in the production of three form factors for our projects for our internal use during which time DesignEdge provided us with extremely valuable technical guidance, design help and support for our projects. We unveiled the headsets at CES in January 2018 and they have since received positive recognition in the market.”

  • ELIMINATA® Energy Savers use ‘Plug-in and Forget’ smart technology to adapt to existing office appliances and deliver quick pay back – often within 12 months. DesignEdge’s awareness of market requirements, in-depth knowledge of high-volume manufacture and understanding of technological innovation combined with extensive polymer knowledge was the key to the project’s success. Our eyes were opened to new possibilities and we will be working with DesignEdge on our next generation of energy reducing products.”

  • This is an exciting and innovative project which could possibly revolutionise the sewerage industry. Being able to cheaply, accurately and reliably measure the range of flows that go on inside sewer pipes has up until now not been economically possible. However, this innovative bit of kit, which utilises microwave technology and has nothing invasive in the bore, can measure flows as low as 0.20 l/s equivalent to the tiniest trickle in the invert of the pipe, up to virtually full bore flows.”

  • DesignEdge has helped us to develop a simple and stylish production unit integrating a compact lens tilting mechanism. Their in-depth knowledge of the latest moulding processes and their expertise in design for manufacture has helped us create a business product that is intuitive and easy to use. DesignEdge has provided a first class service and a winning result and I would not hesitate to recommend their design services.”

  • Working with Design Edge on the development of the Rocket™ has delivered our second award-winning instrument design. The eye-catching design is memorable and iconic, gaining a high degree of product and brand recognition in the market. The ergonomics of the system are superb, delivering ease of use and comfortable operation. The integration between the team at Design Edge and our in-house engineers was effective and efficient, with drawings, plans and images delivered on time, and taking into account product and cost constraints inherent in the project. Design Edge is a great development partner and our “secret weapon” in product innovation.”
