Client Testimonial

  • ....if we need more analysis carried out we will certainly be pleased to use your services again.

    Matt Toms, Product Development Manager, Impey UK Ltd
  • "....the work was very useful. In fact it informed our materials selection on a number of components which led us to change some of the device design. As a result we now have a much more robust product and in fact it was re-launched to market last week with some good feedback coming back already. Thanks for your help."

    Charlie Campion, ApaTech Limited
  • "...Apogee conducted a series of stringent tests in lab conditions [on our Aquatina Collapsible Pocket Bottle] which yielded some remarkable results. Andrew's attention to detail and enthusiasm produced a report that has satisfied our International clients and paved the way to a national retail contract for Aquatina. With Andrew's results to hand I was able to quickly assure 4 hostile BBC Dragons of the extraordinary resilience of the Aquatina.

  • "We had a very urgent requirement which had to be fullfilled within a very tight deadline, in addition to this a very active input was provided that fell outside of the original remit. I thoroughly recommend this company and in particular the help of Dr Andrew New is recognised. We shall again contract with this company.
