Diamond Engineering has built up an enviable reputation for helping its cus-tomers to achieve their desired outcomes. The typical challenges usually in-clude either one or more of the following;
- Improved product reliability
- Faster time to market
- Reducted total life time costs
- Component & Assembly
- Service & Warranty
- End of life
- Reduced lead times
- Minimum exposure to stock
- Ease of assembly
- Ease of use
- Ease of maintenance/service
- Green credentials (recyclability, carbon footprint)
In order to achieve these goals, the company has developed a broad engi-neering capability and a robust supply chain, which it continues to build on, year on year. Its current offering includes;
- Design for manufacture (components & assemblies)
- Value engineering (material & process)
- Selection and sourcing of materials
- Selection and sourcing of processes
- Design and sourcing of “in transit” and finished goods packaging
- Supply chain management
- Project management
- In house manufacturing (machining, assembly and test)
- Material traceability, including serialisation
Diamond Engineering’s core competence is its ability to support customers in taking product concepts/prototypes seamlessly through to serial production, in a cost effective and timely fashion.
The sooner the Diamond Engineering team is involved in the development of a product, the greater the impact they can have on the product develop-ment process. However, given the IP sensitivities, we recognise the need for total confidentiality. Consequently, the company has recently taken a step beyond NDAs, by adopting a policy of not working for our customers’ competitors.
This approach not only brings greater peace of mind and therefore engage-ment, it allows us to be a potential conduit (obviously with the customer’s consent) for innovative ideas/processes/materials across the non-competing sectors.

Established in 1977, family business, Diamond Engineering is a subcontract manufacturer of mechanical assemblies and precision machined compo-nents. In addition, the company has its own range of products, servicing a niche market, which has given the management team a clear picture of how the right supply chain partners can not only add value, but also create dif-ferentiation (i.e. competitive advantage).
Consequently, the company has developed a growth strategy based on partnering businesses that are looking for these qualities in their supply chain.
By taking this approach, we feel that we can add the greatest value to our customers and therefore secure the future for ourselves.
Diamond are a supplier I don’t have to worry about because they get the job right first time whilst also meeting our demanding timescales.
