Our Expertise

Robotics is growing in the Manufacturing sector because the bulk of the work is unsafe or impossible for humans to accomplish, thus shifting the burden of repetitive manual tasks from skilled workers. Robotics increase output and achieves a level of accuracy and productivity beyond human capability.

3D printing is popular because of its versatility, providing many design possibilities for a singular part. Not only does it condense waste by recycling plastic, it also decreases the lead time for replacement parts and their transportation due to the technology’s ability to print them on site.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is skyrocketing because it offers necessary tools and technology to lower costs and boost output. IoT devices can track inventory on a global scale, allowing industries to monitor their supply chain with accurate estimates of available resources. The combination of machine learning and IoT enables machines to detect and fix problems on their own, solving a time consuming and expensive problem.

Soundbites

“A top 10 global accounting firm introduced me to fdu. fdu were thorough in their scoping process and spent the right time to make sure that they understood Midrex’s global proposition and the local office technical requirement. I am based in the US and travel extensively so it was crucial for me to feel comfortable enough to trust the chosen Associate and be able to build a successful working relationship at a distance. fdu supported me for over a year and I was delighted with the service. The implementation was quick, and the aftercare, both formal and informal, was regular. The mark of success came 12 months down the line when we smoothly transitioned fdu group’s Associate directly into our workforce. For global firms looking for support on the ground in the UK, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend fdu’s services.”

David Hamilton, formerly Midrex Technologies

“Having taken the time to fully scope out our needs with both Tyler Mangan and myself, fdu moved fast to identify the right Interim FD resource and implemented the Interim service on time and according to plan.”
