About us

Who We Are

We are the UK’s go-to design consultancy dedicated to
outstanding bespoke, creative product design.

Our Heritage

Not only do we innovate, we build on over 20 years experience developing diverse products.
This is the driving force behind your design.

How We Deliver

We forge strong working relationships with our clients by connecting them with our team of passionate designers and engineers.

Daring to Dream

Innovation is the core of design. Dare to Dream, and our team will guide and support you throughout your product development.

What we do

We realize your complex technological ideas through a unique mix of outstanding people, extraordinary service and delivering ready to manufacture.


We develop products using our tried and tested 7-Stage Process; a dynamic method applicable to all phases of product development, from concept through to manufacture.



Everything we do is bespoke.  It is just for you, to your requirements and satisfaction.  Our services portfolio is geared to the flexible and unique demands of every project.  Our Five-Stage Design Process is regarded as key in the way MLE delivers its bespoke services to its bespoke clients with their bespoke products.


Here at MLE, a project is more than just a cool design.  Part of our collaborative relationship with clients is developing the project team structure.  We draw on the resources of the engineering team, and experts in the wider group to shape relationships with the client that become greater than the sum of our individual parts.


MLE prides itself on its creativity.  Not just our ability to creatively solve complex technical problems, but also to implement efficient, sustainable and aesthetic products and solutions.  Our close relationships with our clients allow us to fully appreciate your requirements, before implementation.


Inventive electronics is our bread and butter.  As a consequence of many years of design, we have built a team that can seamlessly handle all aspects of the technology and design process in-house.  Our experts work tirelessly to deliver a cohesive, technically solid and beautiful design.
