  • Overview

    Founded 150 years ago by luminary engineer Joseph Stannah, we are a company with both proud engineering heritage and a clear vision for our future.

    Building on the success of our recent product launches, supported by an impressive 136 patents, we have an exciting Product and Technology Road Map showcasing products that, through innovative design and engineering will deliver true benefits to our customers. We need creative Mechanical, Software and Hardware problem solvers of all levels to join the business and help make these ideas happen.

    If you want to be challenged in an environment where ideas and innovation are encouraged; delivering products that make a difference to people’s lives then we want to hear from you.



    Our Mechanical Design Engineers are driven to deliver premium solutions to demanding problems under challenging timescales. They use their resourcefulness to challenge and push for improvements and have a natural curiosity for trialling things. They utilise their engineering knowledge to mitigate risk through the use of practical hand calculation, 3D mechanism designs, statistical modelling and knowledge of kinematic systems, tribology, stress and fatigue. Our engineers strive to improve themselves, their methods and each other.


    What are we looking for?

    You can demonstrate contribution to delivering great design solutions, meeting cost, time and quality targets. You can show us adaptability in picking up CAD tools and can show advanced levels of skill in a leading package.

    You can demonstrate how you’ve tested and verified your designs against a brief.

    You’ll have strong academic qualifications in STEM subjects and demonstrate how you approach problems logically and creatively. We’ll expect you to be a great communicator, confident to ensure your opinion is heard and delivered in a way that is listened to.


    We would love you to have experience in:

    • PTC Windchill PLM and Creo CAD tools.
    • FEA tools specifically Creo simulate.
    • Detailed mechanism design of moving assemblies.
    • Structural analysis of parts and assemblies
    • Use of statistical models for collating and understanding data
    • DFMEA or mitigation of risk at a component or system level.
    • You can demonstrate a motivation of engineering beyond your day job.
