Working with OPD has been an absolute pleasure and an exciting adventure. From the moment we made contact, they have been creative, proactive and passionate about bringing to life our packaging innovation. They guided us through a 2 year innovation project, advising and executing on material technology, product design & a go to market plan for a test & learn. All of which resulted in a successful national store trial in Tescos and Sainsbury’s proving a 13.7% sales increase for our innovative Shelf Facer pack. I would highly recommend working with OPD to bring your ideas to reality.Chris – UK Experience Centre, Smurfit Kappa, Customer
OPD are one of a kind. They have been complete game-changers for our business. We talked to no less than 100 product development firms in the US and Europe over a 5 months period before finding OPD. No other firm had the knowledge and experience to take on our project.Bearbutt, Customer

CAD has become somewhat of a mainstay for product development, and we embrace this here at mouse. We have many years of experience in using Solidworks and use it throughout our development process.
We don’t 3D print in-house for one simple reason – flexibility.
We work closely with Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) for all our 3D printing requirements.
Our in-house laser facilities allow us to quickly turn around prototypes or small batch runs of two-dimensional products.
Our unique experience allows us to develop both hard and soft goods with perfect integration between the two. We run several industrial machines so we can sound out ideas, create samples in the UK or even run small production batches of soft goods.
Our in-house CNC machine allows us to cut parts too large for economical 3D printing.
Creating great products relies on great communication. From concept ideation to explaining your brand-new product to your customers, we use the latest visualisation & Adobe Creative Cloud software to generate stunning visuals, logos and technical documentation.
Rich is founder and director here at OPD. He has spent 15 years mainly working in the outdoor and leisure industry with forays into packaging and sustainable PPE. When he’s not busy sketching out ideas, he can be found knocking out prototypes on the sewing machine and laser cutter. Away from work he’ll be surfing his sea kayak off Anglesey or bouldering with his kids.
