The Team Our team consists of highly trained product designers and innovation specialists, mechanical engineers, modelmakers, and CAD modellers.
We believe that the success of a product is judged by the satisfaction that it brings to the user, and crucially, the success it brings to our clients.
To this end we are focused on working closely with our clients to ensure their business objectives and aspirations are met and exceeded.
We do this by combining creative talent with a hard-headed understanding of marketing, empathy with the end user, and deep knowledge of engineering and manufacturing. This delivers solutions that are fresh and innovative but also functional and cost effective.
Curiosity is a key attribute in the design process. What are the technologies and trends that will shape the way we live and work tomorrow? We pride ourselves in discovering the latest social and scientific developments that can inform our practice.
We are a professional organization, yet a friendly and modest team. We aim to make doing business an enjoyable and exciting process.
Jedco is committed to delivering designs that do not harm the environment. Much of our work features recycled materials and sustainable technologies such as solar power. In addition we have provided sustainable design consultancy to organizations such as London Remade who look to make tangible advances in this field.
Jedco can provide a complete product design package, from initial concept to specifications for production.
Most projects begin with a free no obligation meeting at our offices or yours. We then produce a thorough Project Proposal which outlines the activities we will carry out. Each proposal is tailored to the individual client and is often split into stages, each with timescales and costs.
Throughout each project the Creative Director provides individual contact with the client. We guarantee a quick, accurate and thoughtful response, and can provide references from many well-known companies to authenticate our capabilities as competent creative professionals.
We are insured to cover any losses that might arise from our negligence or incorrect advice up to £2.5m per claim. In our 33 years of trading no claims have ever been necessary.
Our Services section provides further information about the different ways in which we help our clients to bring sucessful products to market.
