N2PI Consultancy Service

Ricardo is launching N2PI, a bridge to production consultancy service to support our clients in successful launch of innovative products, transitioning from concept to scalable and profitable manufacture through the application of proven niche-volume, new product introduction skills.


Overcoming the challenges of niche manufacture

Our clients are at the cutting edge of engineering innovation, introducting products and services which will change the way we live our lives. However, bringing to market these complex and innovative products, from concept through to the physical, brings with it a number of different challenges, including:

  • Cost effective prototyping
  • Navigating negative cash flow
  • Creating an environmentally conscious manufacturing process
  • Meeting quality and regulatory standards
  • Ensuring the product meets the demands of the evolving global market
  • Cost effective and efficient production in niche volumes
  • Creating a scalable production strategy which minimises waste

N2PI is helping our clients to successfully navigate these challenges, enabling them to launch new products from developing the business case through to scalable and profitable manufacture through the application of proven niche-volume, new product introduction skills.
