Experiment with prototypes, trial concepts and upskill your team with Fab Lab Plymouth — we’re here to help grow your business.

Successful businesses are always evolving. Being able to create prototypes quickly, try out new ideas and test concepts in an affordable way are all vital processes if you want to stay ahead in your sector. Our facilities enable you to do all this, without the traditional costs involved in manufacturing.

Using our CAD designs to produce high-quality components that were economically manufactured with no waste has given Plasloc tangible prototypes. The fast turnaround has been breath-taking and added to the buzz of developing a new product. The facilities offered here will greatly assist companies to stay ahead of the competition.
