What we do
We transform industries.
Whether a start-up or a blue chip organisation, our clients partner with TTP to transform industries.
To do this, our people work at the intersection of science, engineering and business to invent and develop breakthrough products and technologies.
Every person at TTP has a passion for technology and a desire to solve difficult problems. Together, we invent, design and engineer new technologies and products that have lasting global impact.
Who we are
We deliver across the entire life of a project, from opportunity discovery to production engineering.
We work with our clients at discovery stage, helping to understand their markets and identify the best opportunities for invention.
Once we’ve identified an opportunity, we use our deep understanding of science and technology to invent concepts, and our state-of-the-art facilities to prototype them.
We use proven development tools and processes to tackle the most complex design challenges and manage the risks inherent in development.
We work to ensure that our designs meet the needs of all stakeholders, and that they conform with the requirements, specifications, and any identified regulations.
Manufacture is considered from the concept stage. We help clients select manufacturers and develop customised production equipment where required.
Explore our work
We deliver ground breaking science and technologies that improve the lives of hundreds of millions of people and find new ways to connect the world.
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.
