Our Roles

Our Engineers and Designers provide the backbone of NPD projects, working with Product and Market Managers in the earliest stages, to identify development opportunities and create innovative product concepts right through to the latter stages when they work closely with Manufacturing Operations and Suppliers to deliver the finished product.

Ideas are developed in collaboration with colleagues across the business, co-opting external expertise as required. 3D CAD, Digital Simulation tools, 3D printing and prototype testing is used extensively in the development process.

Our Development Test Engineers are an integral part of the development process, working closely with Designers and Engineers to evaluate new product designs through prototyping and product testing. They have a wide knowledge of product performance, testing methods and equipment; they develop new methods and rigs to test the most innovative new products.

Our Development Managers are responsible for small teams of Designers, Engineers and Test Engineers. In addition to their own Product Development project work they mentor their team, provide an additional layer of design input, and ensure development work is carried out on time, in budget and to the highest quality.

Undergraduates from Design and Engineering courses spend a year working in NPD as Junior Designers supporting Designers, Engineers and Test Engineers in their project work. This provides a rich experience of Product Development and its context within Manufacturing and the wider Business environment.

Customers are placing increasing demands on Pegler for a wide variety of technical information associated with our products. CAD files, Dimensional Details and BIM (Building Information Model) files are created and kept up to date by the Technical Information Administrator and made available through our website.

“Product Development is the very best career. Working with every other part of the business, combining the knowledge, skills and experience of others with your own, bringing ideas to reality is very challenging… but of course that’s why its so rewarding when you succeed”
