Upright Media Testimonial

After struggling for months to get my metal staircase compliant with building regs, finally I called Dymond Engineering. Dymond found a solution within minutes of being here. It not only passed, but exceeded all expectations.  Fantastic company, great staff, amazing workmanship, super efficient service, highly recommended.

Boxfit UK

Dymond Engineering delighted us. Boxfit UK experienced excellent service for our brand-new store fit-out in Romford Essex.

We decided on an industrial look and theme with a modern twist. And once we found the look we wanted, went looking for a manufacturer to produce our floor and wall display units. Thankfully we found Dymond Engineering via the internet.

Mike, Sue and Gavin were really responsive and helpful from the outset.  We sent them our design sketches and broad requirements and they then designed the floor stands to meet the look we were after. Moreover they advised us on construction, materials, colours and sizes, etc.

Dymond then worked through our ideas. They made some prototype samples for us to approve ahead of the full manufacturing. So, when all the kit arrived there were no surprises or glitches. They made the delivery to the agreed time and this allowed us to be on schedule for our grand re-opening.

I’m also delighted to report that footfall has increased since we re-opened. Customers are curious of the new store layout and in spite of the COVID pandemic, we have experienced encouraging sales which we are sure is down to the new environment.

Realm Projects Limited

We had used Dymond Engineering for the metalwork on a previous job. So when we needed a metal fabricator for our Wembley Park Market project we chose Dymond. Not only do they specialise in metal shopfittings, they also submitted a competitive price and deadline.

We presented the concept and drawings to Dymond. They helped us to value engineer the products and worked closely with us to deliver what we wanted. Dymond resolved any issues and advised us of progress as the work went through production. Importantly, when any issues did arise Dymond were responsive in resolving these to our satisfaction with no impact on programme. Dymond delivered the work on time against a tight lead time.

The site has now been handed over. The metalwork looks great and the client team are really pleased with the end result, thank you.

DWD Retail Products

Condor Cycles are one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of bespoke bicycles. Using the latest innovation in Italian designed frames, their meticulous attention to detail means they have led the field in custom cycles for over 60 years.

They have operated from their store in Central London for 10 years. They recently decided to purchase the adjacent premises and develop a flagship store. This will enable the business to grow for another 10 years.

Following a detailed tender, DWD Retail Products were chosen as the main contractors. DWD had responsibility for all elements of the refurbishment, from planning to signage.This included the design & manufacture of all the retail fixtures and equipment, for which DWD commissioned Dymond Engineering/Shop Fittings.

Condor’s Managing Director, Grant Young, commented that cycle retailing is a specialist market. He further advised that standard shelving, display and slatwall equipment were not right for Condor. He also commented that it needs to allow the products to be merchandised correctly. DWD and Dymond therefore dedicated themselves to ensuring that each of Condor’s products could be displayed effectively. Moreover all the fixtures were custom designed and manufactured to incorporate all of Condor’s specific requirements.

The refurbishment took 12 weeks to complete and Condor were able to trade throughout, with minimal disruption to the business.

Design at Salt Rock

One of the great things when working with Dymond is they always understand our briefs. They always give advice on how best to achieve our aims and, tell us what they are going to do. And then they deliver what they promised.

They provide invaluable input into the design and functionality of the shop fittings we require. They advise us on strengths and load bearings, engineering costs and address important issues of longevity which are crucial to our retail environments.

As well as their design and engineering expertise, Dymond have always provided excellent quality and customer service. And – they are nice people to work with.

Calendar Club

We at Calendar Club have enjoyed working with Dymond and the team since 2004. They have helped us re-engineer many of our existing fittings, as well as developing new fixtures. This has resulted in a flexible system which enables us to build one of our seasonal units in any location to the required specification in a tough retail environment. When you have to build and close some 280 shops every year as we do, the detail is everything. Dymond understand precisely our particular needs for robustness in transportation, speed of build time, and discreet but stylish solutions.

Any problem we have presented them with, they have produced a solution for. We are always operating under tight timelines and delivery schedules, but Dymond always get us out of potential sticky situations. With their eye also for cost-savings, it helps us to keep growing our business steadily in a difficult and faltering economy. Long may it continue.

Hills Design Ltd

We have been working with Dymond for 20 years in the design, development and supply of metal based retail display equipment. On every project we have received an instant understanding and buy-in of our creative ideas and solutions.

This is followed by the usual sensible interpretation of the best manufacturing techniques and materials to be be used. And of course at a great price! An instant positive response on prototype requests is followed by full support in the development and refining of our idea through to the final solution. Supply of production orders receives the same level of attention, through to project delivery and after sales support.

It has been, and will continue to be, an absolute pleasure to work with one of the UK’s leading engineers in the retail and display industry. They really are ‘nice people to do business with’!

Wanadoo

When looking for someone to assist in designing new concept shopfitting for our next 500 stores I had no hesitation. I turned to a team I have used previously with great success. Jonathan Loader and Colin Dymond complement one another, with Jonathan providing well considered and effective design input, which Colin translates into practical yet elegant engineering solutions.

Colin has meticulous engineering standards. Dymond, therefore, provide equipment and components which are absolutely fit for purpose. In addition to this he thinks beyond the immediate brief to identify previously unconsidered potential enhancements. 

Dymond Engineering provides a refreshing combination of first class engineering skills and high quality control standards. They adhere to agreed schedules, and work with an innovative, solution based attitude through any and all challenges.

Dymond Engineering work hard to understand a client’s needs and repeatedly deliver above our expectations. They value-engineer in accordance with the market and application, and apply considerable expertise within both areas.

Over the period that we have worked with Dymond they have invested in the necessary technology to enable cost effective solutions suited to an ever demanding market.

Buttery Sporting

This season we have started using the Dymond Engineering Partridge Feeders.

They are well built and weigh some 25kg when empty. Their weight means that they do not blow around. They are 100% water tight, suitable for the Exmoor wind and rain.

Holding approximately 60kg of compound pelleted feed, they enable keepers to fill only in favourable weather, say on a twice a week basis. NO wet pellets clogging feeders at all.

Certainly we will look to increase our feeder number in years to come.
