Who is Holmes Solutions
We are engineering experts with a passion for making our clients more competitive. We generate an unfair advantage by helping to create products that are useful, usable, and desirable. Skilled in designing, developing and testing complex products and systems, we have a history of providing pioneering solutions and are immensely proud of the success we engineer for our clients.
We understand that astonishing technical solutions must be targeted at satisfying specific needs of the marketplace. We work with our clients to understand their business and their market needs, then focus on providing technical solutions that add the greatest commercial value. Our broad skill set allows us to add value across all stages of a product’s life-cycle, from determining the initial feasibility through to undertaking final compliance testing.
As part of the Holmes Group we have access to some of the world’s leading structural, civil and fire engineers and compliance specialists. We draw on this international network to bring further specialist advice to supercharge our project teams.

In summary, Holmes Solutions have achieved unrivalled success developing both new concepts and providing refinement and improvement to existing client products. Our market-leading knowledge, engineering wisdom, and unique approach to problem solving allows us to make gains that others simply cannot achieve. Our clients call us their unfair advantage.
We ask better questions and we deliver better solutions. Enabling our client’s commercial success comes from the discipline, intellectual horsepower and commercial acumen of our people. Our team is fanatical about designing, developing, and testing great products. Every ounce of our knowledge and experience is dedicated to creating commercial advantage for our clients.
We use our unique approach to problem solving to achieve results that your competitors will envy. Individually, our people pride themselves on the success of our clients, the quality of our work, and speed of delivery. As a firm we are driven by the attitude, ability, and accountability of our people.
We are a deliberately motley crew of researchers, technicians, structural, mechanical, civil, electrical and fire engineers who believe that creativity is intelligence having fun. We have a unique approach to business and take great pleasure in creating commercial success for our clients. Solving challenging problems is our lifeblood with fresh ideas and ingenuity as essential ingredients in the mix. We work internationally across a diverse range of industries and have the courage to tackle technically challenging projects.
We need talented individuals who will run towards a challenge rather than step back. It will help if you have some practical experience and are not afraid to get your hands dirty – our approach is very hands-on.
If you want to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in, then get in touch – we are always looking for good additions to the team.
