About Us

History

Established in early 1987 Optimal remains a privately owned business that provides wide ranging automation solutions for our varied clients around the world.  Our professional yet approachable style, a flair for innovation and our ethical standards have always been our trademark.  The business has been built on providing high quality systems on time and to budget, this enabling us to sustain many long term client working relationships.

The core business remains as it was at the start - the application of industrial automation to provide maximum tangible benefits to our clients.  We do not believe in ‘levering in’ technology for the sake of it.  Very often, simplicity of approach is the key to success.

Early on in the new millennium we embarked on the development of a software package for PAT data management and soon after a software package for machine vision.  Using our in-depth knowledge together with typical innovation synTQ® and synTI® were created, the former now being available globally via Emerson Process Management® and being widely recognised as the market leading PAT data management product.

From batch, continuous process automation and PAT to discrete assembly and packing machine control, Optimal is able to automate and optimise your process.  Mix this in with our experience in improving your margin by lowering your cost of manufacture then we have to be the company to engage with.
