Prototyping & Design Development

Here at Hitherbest, we’ve learned a lot in our three decades of sheet metal fabrication. One thing that stands out is the benefit to our customers of us being able to offer the right support when it comes to prototyping and design development.

No matter how precise the product specification, or how accurate the design, having expert insight at the early stages of production can help to avoid mistakes that can result in the costly re-working of your product and, importantly, can identify ways of reducing manufacturing costs. Whether you are planning large-scale ongoing production, backup production or even a limited run, this can have a huge impact on the financial viability of your product and help ensure that you achieve an acceptable margin.

Working with you for the best results

No-one understands your product and your customers better than you do. That’s why we will work with your design team from the outset, bringing our expertise in the practicalities of manufacturing and production, to ensure that you obtain the quality product you require.

A team approach

Our facilities include some of the most efficient and accurate machines available within the industry and our team of highly experienced operators know exactly what the equipment is capable of and how to get the best out of it. The close working relationships within our team, particularly between our operators and talented programming engineers, ensure that your product is optimised before it even starts the manufacturing process.

We can provide you with accurate representations of your designs within both a competitive time frame and price window, proposing improvements or adjustments based on our wealth of knowledge and experience.
