Our current team of full time design engineers, project engineers and part time/associate design engineers are based around the UK and worldwide. As well as our in house experts, we draw further knowledge and experience from an extensive network of consulting associates, many of whom are specialists in their field. We have had close working relationships with many of these partners for a significant time and we can rely on them to assist and help us successfully deliver complex projects and activities.
Our Background and Working Style
Our team has a broad range of skills and experience in a variety of markets – this allows us to get involved with virtually any design or product development activity as we usually have the know-how. In addition to our pragmatic hands-on “let’s get the job done” approach, all our team hold advanced higher level qualifications (our technical team all hold masters or doctorate degrees in various engineering and technology areas) so you can be assured we have solid knowledge behind our advice and designs.
All of our design work is done in-house – we are not a middle man and we don’t use temporary fly-by-night subcontractors, so you can be confident that the technical knowledge on the finer details of your design will always be available from Milliamp should you need to revisit it with us.
We like to be available to our customers whenever and however they need us, so in addition to traditional methods like face to face meetings, we make maximum use of Internet and multimedia communication such as instant messenger chat/video conferencing (Google Hangouts, Facebook, Skype), remote PC desktop access and email to do this – so we can be virtually on hand to help anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week if need be.
We have a diverse customer base from around the UK and beyond – usually we undertake our work out at our own locations, however if the project requirements dictate we need to work on our customer’s site or in the field for short periods of time, we will happily accommodate this. We often work with (and quite enjoy) working in unusual places in the world, with very wide ranging types of projects – no project is too extreme !
