Kevin delivered the work ahead of schedule and to a very high level of quality.  I was given confidence right from the off and his knowledge of CREO and the modelling approach was second to none.  I will not hesitate in getting Kevin involved in the future.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Orion to others.”

“We recently began working with Kevin on the development of a new product idea which was a new field for us.  Kevin’s knowledge of all processes, design work and his ongoing support throughout has been extremely valuable to us, taking us from initial concept through to working prototype.  Kevin delivered excellent design input and always within the time-frame communicated to us.  We shall continue to work with Kevin on any further design concepts we may have in the future.”

“Kevin came highly recommended to me from my UK colleagues, following the completion of some high quality project work he had produced for another side of the business. He was subsequently engaged by me in a multi-disciplinary role at senior level, coordinating several multi-national design teams on a complex, high-value New Product Development project. His creativity, experience and engineering ability added significant value to the project and enabled several patents to be pursued. Kevin has an excellent work ethic and takes ownership of any given task. The program was completed ahead of time and to a very high standard. We wanted to secure Kevin as a permanent employee at our company, and as such would have no hesitation in recommending him”

We were lucky to find Kevin at very short notice, and once I met him and outlined the work content, I was re-assured and impressed how quickly he demonstrated an understanding of the requirements, and offered a commitment to staged delivery to match our deadlines, fitting this around his existing work schedule by extending his available time. I was confident to give him the go ahead straight away against his verbal quote, the formalities followed.
