Penso was established in 2000 by Daniel Hurcombe and David Roche, two experienced manufacturing professionals with a background in design, finite analysis and composites.
The duo, who had worked in senior roles on automotive, F1 and Indy Car projects, spotted a niche in the marketplace to use their skills and contacts to create a UK-based engineering solutions provider that could respond quickly to the changing dynamics of global industry.
They quickly recognised the need to surround themselves with experts in their field, leading to the creation of a senior management team that, today, are crucial to delivering our anticipated growth.
