Case Studies

Tridan’s successful track record of projects for our partners has not simply been due to the machinery we have, the skill of our staff, the size of our premises or the breadth and depth of experience provided by membership of the Langham Industries group.

It is about how the Tridan team work rapidly to fully understand our partners’ requirements and develop high quality, innovative and cost-effective solutions.

Tridan continue to strengthen existing relationships and win new business from partners who appreciate that we are at the forefront of our industry through our ongoing training, research and investments.


To demonstrate these successes we have drawn together a number of case studies from across a range of industries that illustrate the typical life cycle of a Tridan engineering project from initial problem identification to successful solution.

MBDA Case Study


MBDA is a world leader in missile systems offering a comprehensive international product range incorporating todays most advanced innovations. 

They were experiencing problems with delivery, quality and price stability as they had far too many incumbent suppliers. The team within MBDA were tasked to reduce the amount of preferred machining companies to four. 




After an exhaustive search through the internet, a possible 500 companies were listed as possible suppliers, including Tridan.  After months of auditing, Tridan were selected as one of the four “preferred machining companies”.


As one of the four preferred machining companies, we hold weekly design for manufacture meetings (DFM) with MBDA engineers to help reduce cost/ease of manufacture. MBDA delivery and quality statistics have gone up significantly, working with Tridan in a true partnership. This has been a win win for both companies.
