Optima has worked with a wide range of clients from individual inventors to large multi-national organisations. We believe that the most sustainable business comes through recommendation, so here is what some of our customers have been saying about us.

Hisham Awad Mechnical Project Manager – Emerging Programmes – BAE Systems

“BAE Systems have been working with Optima for over 15 years on a multitude of projects in different divisions of the company. They have been able to offer a wide range of services including training, engineering design and analysis. Working on the Future Protected Vehicle programme Optima were able to work alongside BAE Systems to generate and develop vehicle concepts including amazing visualisations and animations used in many of our presentations and further vehicle analysis. Working to extremely tight project deadlines Optima were able to deliver everything we asked and exceeded our expectations.”


Stewart Taylor, Technical Director – Cooper Security Ltd

”We have worked with Optima for a decade and we outsourced all our drawing office work to them over ten years ago. We find them very easy to work with: fast, responsive and ingenious. Their skill with ProE/Creo Elements means that they make the most efficient use of its capabilities, but even more important for us is that they really understand the manufacturing processes involved and instinctively produce designs that are practical to manufacture.”


Chris Fower, Director – pBone

“Working with Optima, who are based locally to us in the UK, has given us the ability to quickly take the musicians ideas and turn them into reality in a short space of time. Getting products made quickly using rapid prototype techniques has allowed us to get feedback straight away. Optima have always provided us with a quick and efficient service and their manufacturing knowledge has helped us to determine the most appropriate process.”
