Crawler Excavator / Demolition Machine
OPD have worked on a number of innovative new product development and cost reduction projects on a new machine launch for this international organisation, leveraging significant previous experience with similar products.
Each project involved the full product development cycle from idea generation, concept design, detail design, stress analysis, engineering drawing, project management and costing, working to International Standards as well as the customer’s own exacting standards and codes of practice. We integrated into the existing design office at senior engineer level, providing additional resource and experience when and where required.
Total project value is several £million in total. Sub projects covered several areas of the vehicle including electrics, structural elements and the operator access system and cab.

I engaged Kevin to work in my Development Team on several cost reduction and new product development activities. He always delivered what was requested quickly, efficiently and to a very high standard. I would therefore be happy to recommend his services.
