"In addition to the great design work, we have been particularly pleased with their help in managing the progress of the project, enabling two new products to be developed, built and launched in just over four months.

Each stage of the project was delivered on or ahead of schedule and on budget. We are delighted with the results and looking forward to developing more exciting new products with Crucible."

"The benefits that Crucible brought to our business are extensive. Their design input has substantially reduced both production costs and operating overheads.

Their manufacturing concepts and designs now allow us to assemble product from pre-assembled modules, thus reducing our build times for finished units. This has dramatically reduced the time taken to convert customer orders into finished goods. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services.”

"We realised that the design of the product was going to be fundamental to its success. We approached Crucible because we have worked with them previously and they understand our products, the design of our range and our branding.

By diversifying our range we have dramatically increased our sales figures and have opened up a raft of new markets."

“The wider-than-higher proportion is not just a pretty face. The chassis has a wide air out flow that completely envelopes a pair of hands for efficient hand drying.

So much styling and so much function at a mid-price point offers outstanding value in a hand drier”.

"We were impressed by Crucible’s portfolio and experience. We felt confident that their design strengths were suited to showcasing OXIS as a leading, innovative technology.

The quality of the design and the prototype presents us as an organisation that our customers can have confidence in. It has helped to transition OXIS from an R&D organisation to a revenue generating, commercial company. I would definitely recommend Crucible and we will certainly be working with them again in the future."

"Working closely with our engineers, the designers at Crucible carefully reviewed the technical considerations and delivered a range of exciting concepts for our new range of controllers. 

They also designed the show stands and coordinated both model and stand manufacture for launch at the Nuremburg SPS show in 2011. Crucible delivered a modern, stylish practical design, within the Parker brand guidelines and played a major part in meeting the tight deadlines for its international launch”.

"Crucible were great to work with on this project. They provided a superb service and a first class result.

They were totally reliable and accommodating. They gave us complete confidence in their ability to deliver on time and on budget through regular updates and visuals, and were always readily available to answer any questions and allay any concerns."

“Crucible used their knowledge of injection moulding – and particularly the two shot process – to deliver a very successful solution to an exacting brief that required ATEX approval.

Mike and Hugh took a very co-operative approach to the project and were always available for the discussions and meetings that are so important in a project like this.”
