Our Philosophy & Vision

In the creation of the company, the name was obviously debated at length and over a few beers! And whilst industry related names were thrown in to the mix none really stuck and fit with what the founders were dreaming of creating.
Black Lab Design is about more than a sheet metal fabrication workshop or industrial design and engineering house, it’s about building a culture and delivering value beyond just the finished product to our customers. We wanted to communicate our personality and vision, that of building an environment of open collaboration and friendship between our own team and that of our clients and partners where we share knowledge, ideas and successes.
The Lab comes from the vision of education, research and innovation that we are building and the Black Lab’s are a reflection of our founders shared love of Black Labradors. We have our very own live brand mascot in Billy, THE Black Lab of Black Lab Design!
