Over four years, an engineering firm based in Derbyshire have received £172,000 in R&D tax credits with the latest instalment of £71,000. The company develop, upgrade and often miniaturise equipment to install into an existing facility.

A highly skilled, closely knit team take a proactive approach to R&D and have developed their in-house manufacturing capabilities, including the skills needed to refurbish and improve the efficiency of existing installations rather than replacing with new plant equipment. Computerised 3D modelling and simulation enables the team to investigate the most efficient processes possible. Bespoke solutions have also been achieved through intense trialling and problem solving.
