Our focus areas

Partnership approach

We believe that investing in partnerships is the best way to achieve results. We take a collaborative approach to product development, and start by understanding your needs and then continue to work in close collaboration throughout.

We work with you to intrinsically understand your business, products, and challenges, and utilise our capabilities to find solutions.

Simulation and Rapid Prototyping

Here at Gulf we understand the product development challenges, and costs associated with design revisions and project delays. That’s why we use cutting edge technology to optimise, simulate, and streamline our development processes.

ACAD, SolidWorks Simulation, FEM, DFMEA, Stress Analysis, life expectancy in fatigue, dynamic metal forming and sealing optimization, are just a few of our programmed engineering strategies.

With the in-house capability for rapid prototyping, combined with our simulated development processes, Gulf is market leading.

Integrated components and inter-material bonding

Working with rubber, plastics, metals and ceramics, our experts craft materials with incredible toughness, durability and greater reliability. We are experts at bonding rubber to a range of material substrates, such as plastics, metal and fabric.

As specialists in integrating components, we can supply you with complete sub-assemblies, simplifying your products, and streamlining your supply chains.
