Our clients say:

“The things we need most from a prototyping partner in our rapidly-moving industry are a consistently high level of quality, fast turnaround, on-time delivery and reliable service. Prototype Projects always send us quotes on the same-day we request them. We never have to chase them for anything. I value the problem-solving, ‘can-do’ approach offered by Gary, Martin, Justin and the rest of the team. Compared to other Cambridge and UK engineering companies, the Prototype Projects service is head and shoulders above the rest.” – Martin Prescott, CCS Limited
