We work to transform our clients design, development & engineering needs into commercially successful products and medical devices. Please take a few moments to review or contact us now to learn more.

Haughton Design has a long-standing history of successful projects spanning a variety of sectors for clients internationally. Applying a blend of this expertise, engineering excellence and innovative flair paired with our flexible, timely, and multidisciplinary approach means that we develop novel products and medical devices that perform in the real world.

Due to the nature of our work and client confidentiality, many of our projects are commercially sensitive therefore cannot be shown or have been composed generically to be anonymous. Please look through some of our work to date but also consider our first engagement for any new client is usually in a new specialist area.

We have extensive experience of many different technologies and manufacturing processes, we are here to help you take advantage of that knowledge and speed up the development of your new medical device or product.
