PDR also won the 3D Systems Worldwide Achievement Award last year for its work in adapting the stereolithography rapid prototyping process for use in the prototyping of over-moulded metal parts.

In the latest move to provide a superior service PDR has now relocated to a its new purposebuilt premises on Uwic's Llandaff campus.
