We always strive to help our clients achieve success with their new products. So its great to see one of our designs hitting the shelves of one of the UKs biggest and best retail outlets.

Aquaplane is now available at Argos.


Growing our Supply Chain

4D Staff had an interesting visit to the North West Manufacturing Exhibition at Event City, Manchester, uncovered a raft of potential new suppliers this week.

At 4D we are constantly challenged to design new and innovative products. This is all very well and good, but without quality suppliers in a wide range of manufacturing disciplines, our designs would never be realised. We know the importance of the supply chain and are always on the look out to expand our supplier base.

The most common manufacturing processes we design for at 4D are injection moulding and CNC machining (in metals and plastics). However we also use electronic and PCB designers, laser cutters, chemical etchers, and many more fantastic suppliers base in the UK and overseas.

Assembly of new products

We have recently been commissioned to assemble new products, which we previously designed. Assembly of new products is another service we can offer our customers.

Whilst It’s difficult to compete on cost when dealing with very low cost, high volume products from a UK base, there is a real opportunity when it comes to higher value products.

We cant reveal the product just yet as it hast been launched, but it is a reasonably complex electro mechanical device which retails for several hundred pounds. It is also really valuable for the design team to see the products going together, as it highlights the importance fo design decisions for ease of assembly, which ultimately lead to lower cost, better quality products.

Client Feedback

Our ongoing success depends greatly on delivering customer satisfaction. We recently had the following client feedback;

Over the last couple of years 4D have provided great service and working with them has been a very pleasant experience. 4D’s design and cads skills are second to none, their passion for what they do is evident and their input has been nothing less than superb. I thoroughly recommend 4D to any business looking for cost effective, top class design input.
