Leading UK CAD and PCB Design specialist Quadra Solutions will this month celebrate 20 years in business. The Accrington-based design firm was set up in 1999 by four founding members, Steve Dobson, Simon Dobson, Rob Hargreaves and Keith Watkins, all of whom are still with the company today.

Quadra is not only a reseller for Autodesk design software and Zuken Printed Circuit Board software eCADSTAR, but also provides support, training and design services to a wide range of industries including manufacturing, electronics, engineering and construction. These industries have seen dramatic changes in the last 20 years and Quadra has been at the forefront of these advances, helping these businesses adapt, adopt and advance.

Since 1999, the company has expanded onto two sites’, become a training centre for the prestigious IPC CID Printed Circuit Board Design Qualification and won numerous awards for their services.

Steve Dobson, Managing Director says;

“Over the last 20 years, Quadra Solutions have managed to build strong and long-lasting relationships with local businesses, with many of these relationships being over 15 years old.”

“ We recently found a news article from when the Quadra first started out. It’s amazing to think how far we’ve come and some of the exciting projects and companies we’ve had the privilege to be involved with over the last 20 years.”

The company celebrated reaching its 20th birthday, by organising an away day for all members of staff. The day included Clay Pigeon Shooting, 4 x 4 driving and dinner at the Conniston Hotel near Skipton!
