We have worked with The Bowen Brothers team for a while now and have created some interesting commercial opportunities together. They have the ability to take a concept, turn it into a funded project and then deliver the project. Its been a great collaboration for both companies and we hope it continues.

The business case for my product was struggling as the margins didn't work. The Bowen Brothers reduced the piece cost through design changes and commercial negotiation, saving 30% from the bill of materials! They then restructured cost models and supported design changes to add further revenue streams from the one product.
The mix of commercial knowledge and engineering means at no point did my product lose integrity. Every change was managed and validated.
