Product Design and Development

No matter where you are in the product design and development process, Dudley Associates can provide expert assistance to ensure your project is completed to your exact specifications.

About Our Service

We have worked on a large number of successful high profile product design and development projects and our clients include some of the best product design companies in the UK as well as a number of Universities.

We have worked on product design and development projects as varied as Mercedes, ING F1, NatWest and Motorhead!

We have also worked with many smaller firms or individuals who wanted to develop a new product.

We offer a complete product design and development service using the latest CAD software and ensure that all your components are optimised for injection moulding. We take care of everything from advising on the choice of material to sourcing additional parts on your behalf. This leaves you free to focus on other important areas.

At Dudley Associates, we can assist no matter where you are in the design process. From helping with an initial idea to working with complete designs, there is nothing we can’t do.

On top of 3D CAD design, we also have mould flow analysis software that allows us to simulate the moulding of your part. This enables us to highlight potential problems with the project before we get started with the production process and make amendments where necessary – potentially saving a lot of time and money.

    Amelia Lucas, Purchasing Co-ordinator at Datum Electronics
    “We were working with Dudley on a complex component that also involved another supplier, almost at the end of the development cycle the 2nd supplier let us down. John and the team at Dudley stepped in to rescue the project showing impressive technical ability and perseverance and leading us to a great end result.”
    Will Penfold, Technical Director at Kelda Technology

    I just wanted to share a quick note from myself and the team and let you know that we were delighted that you could meet both the costs and perhaps, more importantly, the timescale we had to work with. Very glad we decided to work with you again. It’s also worth mentioning that the support and advice that Dudley Associates provided to our design team while transitioning from their concept to the final tooling has been fantastic.”

    “We first approached Dudley to manufacture injection mould tools for us as we thought they offered excellent quality at a competitive price, and we were not disappointed. The tools are of excellent standard and delivered on time. Having had trouble free tools delivered, we now also take advantage of their in-house moulding facilities for small production run which again were completed on time without any problems.”

    How it Works

    Our all-encompassing product design and development service is delivered in three key parts to ensure everything is made to your specifications.


    We’ll take the time to understand your requirements and make recommendations where necessary. We’ll also source non-moulded parts if this is required.


    We can highlight potential problems with the design using our mould flow analysis software and will also provide you with a prototype for design validation.


    Once everything has been finalised, we’ll start manufacturing your component and assemble everything so you receive a fully-completed part.
