Warwick Music – pBone

“We’ve worked with Optima on a number of products since starting with pBone and we’ve developed a great working relationship. Our aim is to design and manufacture everything in the UK and working with local companies like Optima has enabled us to do this. Their expertise in injection moulding and eye for detail has ensured a smooth path to production.”

“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.”

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 Creo 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.”

Stewart Taylor – Director
