Welcome to PD Components Ltd - Injection Moulders UK
PD Components are leading Injection Moulders UK, we are a new business consolidated from two long
established companies covering component sourcing
offering and supply and product design and engineering
We provide sourcing and manufacture of bespoke
components and sub-assembly, including electronics
manufacture in any volume at competitive prices.
We have worked with many companies, some well known
names over the years.
Our design services specialise in industrial product
design - right down to component level, encompassing
physical engineering design and including electronic
and software design, ergonomics and human
interfaces. We provide prototypes in very short lead
times, graphic design for marketing media/packaging
and web design.
The design business formerly Production Designs Ltd
has over 22 years of design activities and the
component supply business
has been very successful since its launch in 2003.

We are a business with a difference having a
specific design focus incorporating skills in
This is a rare combination to normal design house
policy and few actually take on manufacturing.
We design for manufacture for low to high volume
production across most market sectors.
We recognise consumer products need that additional
wow factor for maximum impact while minimising
First impressions are important and curiosity is
what entices a person to closer inspection. A crisp
clean design will pull attention while the technical
features confirm what is expected.
Our clients usually come to us with a concept – and
sometimes a few problems. It might be a new product
for which they need a design that will perform well,
look great, and won’t shatter the manufacturing
Our job at this stage is to assess the practicality
of the client’s expectations.
We rarely have to say, “Sorry, it can’t be done”,
but we may well come up with a better way of
achieving the required result.
At the end of the brainstorming session, we’ll each
have a clear picture of the way forward.
The vital component is the vision and experience of
the designer – and that’s what makes the finished
product something special.
We use advanced 3D computer modelling and
visualisation to get an early result.
Then our next step is detailed engineering to reduce
risk and cost and maximise on ease of manufacture
and cosmetic content.
We are customer focussed and it is equally important
to us that prospective users and those who
manufacture the parts provide feedback on our
designs prior to manufacture.
We can supply a working prototype from various
processes such as SLA, SLS, CNC etc with very fast
turn around and at reasonable cost.
We include graphic and web design for media,
advertising, packaging and technical publications.
Our pricing policy has been to give a great value
for money service but matched to give the best
possible results without incurring huge costs. We
don’t believe in hidden extras as some businesses
do. Our service includes everything needed for
manufacture - without additional charges.
... and there is more!!
Manufacture (Injection Moulders UK)
Where our business is possibly unique is that we
also manufacture our designs.
With many design projects, the smaller businesses
find the cost of tooling and supply of bespoke
components carry a too high a burden on their
financial resources, resulting in many projects
failing to reach production.
Our skills and experience address this niche market.
We undertake & manage production, logistics and
maintain quality - for the life of the product.
We will also accept designs from others for
manufacture and we check these for accuracy and risk
prior to acceptance.
Occasionally, businesses provide designs which carry
expense or high risk. Our experience filters out
these dangers giving our client a chance to correct
them before committing to manufacture.
We deal direct with many factories across the UK and
EU but mostly in Asia, predominantly Taiwan and
China and have excellent relations with them.
Our expertise lies in design for manufacture to suit
the selected suppliers and in maintaining accurate
communications between us.
We started our overseas production in Taiwan -
renowned for its low cost production and found their
expertise particularly in tool-making and moulding
We found many factories possessing the right skills
and attitude to quality with highly competitive
pricing and together we provide an exceptional
service. Most carry ISO9001 2000 approvals.
We switched our business model to use Taiwan as a
supply source and this has been highly successful ever
since. We provide technically superior products at
fractional cost, ensuring our UK clients make
We also source component manufacture across the UK
and EU where appropriate.
We went on to supply many more companies with both
design and supply combinations and are possibly
unique in the UK for this service. Customers from
the USA, Europe and the UK have been supplied.
Over the years, we have built our experience in
design for Asia production, improving in low risk
simplified design, communications and trading
experience. In 2009, we expanded the manufacturing
base to mainland China and we now have an extensive
database of quality suppliers across most
manufacturing disciplines and processes.
We can manage projects and production from a few
hundred pieces to over 1m pieces p.a.
You might have a resource problem or a "tricky
something" needing a fresh approach.
You might need a new product designing or something
special adding to your existing design.
Perhaps a machine or process that needs engineering.
You might have completed the design phase and just
need a supplier.
Or one that takes on the whole project and delivers
anywhere in the world.
This is where we can help.
You can find more on our web site

and case studies, but if you have any questions, why
not email us or give us a call, we would love to
hear from you.
