Research & Development Services


The PES team offers a full spectrum of fully integrated research & development services. From providing performance optimisation solutions that resolve tactical or technical issues needing immediate attention, to developing long term programmes.

We can work alongside a small engineering company at the same time as providing outsourced R&D to a large multi-national corporation, helping each to solve their specific problems. We can also be part of or lead a collaborative team delivering an R&D program linked to a strategic grant.

Pushing performance boundaries through R&D

The PES team specialise in ‘cross-pollinating’ technologies from other sectors or developing and applying existing or new solutions. We use this approach to develop new products or to optimise existing concepts to function and compete in a modern environment.

Defining performance can be measured in many ways by different people. The team at PES simply use our knowledge and expertise to help our clients take their concept of product to the next level.

Performance could be:

  • Material change.
  • Simplify or reducing operations to improve manufacturing efficiency.
  • Design optimisation.
  • Reducing cost and or time.
  • Increased product sustainability.
  • Reduce carbon omissions.
  • Identifying and securing IP

We will are very happy to be seen to represent and ‘front up’ your organisation and brand as your design team to ensure a seamless process with your clients.
