Multi-disciplinary industrial design
Grove Design offers a dedicated multi-disciplinary design office that can work from concept through to definition for manufacture.
A state-of-the-art studio combines the latest 3D CAD modeling and analysis with significant production experience to deliver solutions that include vehicle drivetrains, special purpose machinery, processing plants and assistance with new product development.
Initial concept, virtual design prototypes, CAE simulation and testing to full scale pre-production models, Grove Design’s comprehensive design and testing service allows for reduced time to market and a competitive advantage.
Prototyping and workshop facilities (large enough to need an overhead crane) set them apart in their ability to refine designs and properly consider design for manufacture issues, such that they come up with the most cost-effective solutions.
Grove Design has vast experience in design for automotive, to the extent that they have a dedicated off-road test track, making them a critical partner to the automotive sector.
Prototyping and workshop facilities (large enough to need an overhead crane) allow Grove Design to refine designs and properly consider design for manufacture issues, such that they come up with the most cost-effective solutions. Grove’s location in rural Herefordshire has allowed them to develop an on-site workshop with prototyping capabilities, and off-road test track.
