Company History

Orion Product Development Ltd. is a UK-based Technical Consultancy founded in 2007 by Kevin Urquhart CEng MIMecheE WhSch, a time-served Charted Mechanical Engineer and Whitworth Scholar with 25+ years of successful product development experience.

From our humble beginnings supplying great value contract mechanical engineering design services to companies based in the North East of England from our home office in Birtley, County Durham, UK, we have grown into a respected international product development and technical management consultancy.

Our passion to learn and grow is reflected in our operating philosophy, and by our growing portfolio of projects and international clients, all of which are leaders in their field.

We moved to our beautiful new premises in the countryside near Shotley Bridge, County Durham, UK in 2015, and our inspirational office, surrounded by green fields and a few cows, is the perfect base from which to continue to develop a range of socially responsible products and innovative management systems on behalf of our increasing portfolio of international clients

Why Orion?

The stars have inspired generations throughout the ages. The Constellation of Orion in particular inspired the fantastic engineering of the Great Pyramids of Giza. They still stand today as testament to how inspired engineering can be achieved when boundaries are pushed to the limits.

This has inspired our vision to provide best in class engineering design & consultancy services that help our clients similarly push the boundaries and achieve great success that will stand the test of time.
