“They’re pretty reactive, whenever there are issues they can work on them quickly. They’re helpful with responding to our technical issues. We get consistent results, which is particularly important with geometrically intricate pieces”

Michael Peterson, Locus Research


"We’ve been working with them basically since they’ve started going, over 10 years ago. In fact we’ve been using them even more so in the last few years. The casting service is very good, we’re able to use different materials and surface textures. The turn-around is excellent, we often get parts built overnight. Jonathan has been very friendly and very helpful and is great in talking to you about your different options. He helps you look at different ways in which you can make parts. Greater varieties of parts, quality of parts, and the assembly of the parts always works out well”    

 Alastair McAuley, Medlands Consulting


“They’re very efficient, both in lead times and just generally with service. The team are easy to get hold of and to deal with, they’re all very knowledgeable. No complaints at all, P3P is all good.”
