Our clients come from a wide range of industries covering both the public and private sectors. We work closely with companies and agencies in the UK and globally.



We have built close working relationships with a wide range of clients, both since our establishment in 2007 and from our partners' previous experience. Our private sector clients come from a number of key sectors - energy, logistics and manufacturing - and include Cairn Energy and G4S. In the UK public sector we work with the Universities to forge new collaborations with industrial partners. We have also worked with development agencies such as the RDAs in England, Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise and with other bodies such as Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, Edinburgh College of Art, Heriot-Watt University and Harris Tweed Authority.
