First class services and solutions to solve your design and development challenges.

HD offers a wide range of design and development services to many sectors. We are highly flexible and collaborative in our approach, so can tailor and hone our offer to match your specific project needs. We are always eager to provide first class services to our clients and to solve the problems or challenges that you may be facing – we want to make life easier for you.

Typically our clients need either “Turnkey” or “Bolt-on” design and development projects but we can provide individual design, development and engineering tasks/outputs too – please read more below or get in touch if you need our help.


“Turnkey” Design and Development

Our turnkey service is for clients needing a complete design and development project delivered through our own ISO:13485 or ISO:9001 system.

The work and project will be compliant with the necessary regulatory requirements for the device or product being developed with a full design data pack, design history file and full traceability of all documentation.

Our system is designed to be flexible so you can enter or leave the process at any point to suit your project needs.

“Bolt-on” design and development

Our bolt-on service is for clients with their own process, systems and capability but looking for an additional design, development, & engineering team to help complete projects more swiftly.

You may just need a specific task completed or one or two persons amount of time to meet your project’s needs. HD can provide this and deliver it through a whole team, thus adding more value and flexibility to the resource you need.

If required, we will work and support you or your team using your own templates and documentation system to seamlessly integrate our work into your own QMS.
