History

Home     About Us     History

3P was established in 2006 by a group of like-minded engineers with a passion for high-performance machinery and innovation.  

We have grown rapidly, with a large and multi-disciplined team of professional engineers and a combined experience base of over 850 years in engineering.  Our specialists are named on over 300 patents across a very broad spectrum of products and industry sectors.  The business has always worked across multiple sectors, with customers benefitting from the resulting cross-fertilisation of ideas and knowledge. 

From the beginning, we've recognised the value in developing new talent with an active undergraduate development scheme and have long-term relationships with leading engineering universities.  Combined with our more experienced engineers, this powerful mix enables us to embrace and apply new technologies and best practice throughout our work.

Large purpose built facility in Warwick

Plans announced for a new purpose-built facility to accommodate our next phase of investment and growth. Development started on a new 30,000 square foot development at Tournament Fields near Warwick, ideally situated in the centre of the UK.

Due to complete in November 2018, the new facility will house 3P’s broad skill base of professional engineers across all disciplines and provide increased capacity for multiple repeat machine builds, full commercial productions lines as well as early development labs and pilot plant projects.
