Almost every motor car is the product of many skilled persons.  First comes the designer, then the welder, panel beater, etc, etc.  Occasionally, one man designs and builds his own creations, but that is rare these days.  But the start of it all is the human mind and the human hand.  Prototypes start life as the seed of an idea, told to a wife or a friend over a drink. The idea moves the hand, the hand creates the prototype.  Some engineers are gifted.  Some can visualise an idea then convey that idea to paper, thence to metal and glass.





P&D Engineering is located in Coventry in the west Midlands of the United Kingdom.  Their operations include Toolmaking & Precision Engineering, Manufacturing of Jigs, Fixtures, Press Tools, Prototype; Batch Milling, Turning and Grinding.


They can provide a full and integrated service, offering consultation on all aspects from concept design through to manufacture. This is provided on-site, utilising existing conventional draughting techniques and CAD.  In certain cases, this process can be supplemented through external design partnerships, such as those specified by the automotive industry. P & D supply high quality products for the automotive industry as second tier suppliers, or directly to the manufacturers (i.e. Peugeot).
