What matters to us
Technology is an essential part of progress. We apply technology intelligently and purposefully to advance business and progress society.
Our technology must create value. That's best done without sales people in the middle; our clients work directly with our scientists and engineers.
We're not content until our ideas make it to market and create impact. Every project is approached with a delivery mindset.
We can better serve our clients by making proactive investments in technology, facilities and people.
Because we are employee-owned, we are free to make the right decisions for the long-term success of our clients and our business.
A culture of freedom
TTP was founded in 1987 with a culture of freedom. The freedom to explore new technologies. The freedom to share potential new opportunities with our clients. The freedom to invest in our own business.
Three decades on, the world of technology has changed but our ethos has stayed the same: from freedom comes the space to create breakthrough inventions.
