  • “Using BCP’s bespoke panels was a great way to match the design of our POLARIS lander while being lightweight, inexpensive, and good looking. The customer service group at BCP was excellent and worked hard to match the product to our unusual specifications. MSE would definitely consider using BCP panels again on a future project due to BCP’s ability to meet our unusual requirements and the high quality of the final products.”

  • “We recently worked with BCP on a reconfigurable floor structure used to mount various robots and machinery. The service provided by BCP was excellent and I would highly recommend them. They were very knowledgeable in providing help and expertise at the preliminary design stage of the project, helping us to design the perfect component at a cost effective price. The final composite panels were of very high quality and were delivered on time to a tight deadline.”

  • “I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of myself and Mark McKay at Paul Smith Ltd to say a thank you to BCP and Encocam Ltd for supplying and installing our tables at Coal Drop’s Yard. An acknowledgement to all involved on the project, particularly during the final weeks of development and last minute problem solving on the workshop floor. As without this, we would not have realized the final product we have in our shop. The tables have received compliments aplenty all round. I certainly would like to keep in touch for any future projects of similar nature, now knowing BCP’s capabilities and services.”

    – George Houzé, Assistant Designer, Paul Smith

  • “The level of craftsmanship which went into the design and manufacture of the aluminium box is exceptional. The final product is lightweight and of very high quality which was a key requirement as the box needed to be able to withstand the tour. We were pleased with the outcome and would definitely consider using BCP again on future projects.”

    – Sadler’s Wells Theatre

  • “This is the third time we have used BCP for a conservation mounting project. They were very flexible and helpful in developing the ideal support structure that was both lightweight and extremely rigid for the transport and support of these very large, heavy textiles. BCP were able to offer a custom made approach which was what we needed.”
