Our clients experience significant market pressures and rely on us to bring a combination of strategic technology insight and advice in addition to our leading technology and product development capabilities.
Our work ensures that commercially viable solutions are brought to bear tackling sustainability and circularity, decarbonisation and energy transition, digital transformation, systems thinking and advanced control optimisation.
We have over 30 years’ experience in delivering technology strategies and developing innovative products for these markets, made possible by our teams of experts in the latest technologies – including novel sensor development, robotics, computer vision, AI, data science and materials – and underpinned by our core skills in science and engineering.
Digital and automation
Digital transformation is changing, and sometimes disrupting, a wide array of industrial sectors. We help our clients drive change through the adoption of digital technologies, design of agile approaches to innovation, and roadmapping key elements of the digital and IoT pathway. We deliver innovation across the entire digital cycle – from novel sensing technologies, computer vision systems, advanced data analytics and automation – providing solutions that move up the value chain, from monitoring through to predictive maintenance and system control and optimisation.

Sustainability and the circular economy
Sustainability issues – including sustainability strategy and goal consultancy, energy and resource management, decarbonisation and emissions reduction, waste management, and end-of-life strategies – are high priorities for many of our clients who are often searching for solutions to the difficult chemistry and materials issues in this rapidly evolving technology space, as well as seeking to understand changing customer requirements as new products are brought to the market. We deliver solutions – such as advanced sensing and control systems to minimise chemical usage, and advanced manufacturing processes that limit material waste – to these key sustainability challenges.
