A Devonshire engineering company of 35 employees uses £1m of advanced technology to serve its markets, and even to lead the world in some product categories. Magnus Cooper, their Chief Designer, will look at the skills and processes that make it possible. He will bring some products to illustrate the talk.
The company designs and makes 95% of its products and these are used in large vehicles and yachts, unmanned submarines and commercial fishing boats. Their factory is capable of running itself overnight with the “lights out”!
