Our Values

Quality in every action

IntelliDesign values people and partners who share our passion for quality, and calling out, owning, and solving issues.

Together we are better

IntelliDesign invests in long-lasting partnerships with our customers. Our people bring individual strengths to embrace challenges as a collaborative team.

Innovation is cultural

IntelliDesign works on the underlying assumption that everything can be improved by anybody.

Our Team at Work

IntelliDesign is a community of people with diverse skills and experience. Our values and principles inform the way we work and the decisions we make.

At IntelliDesign diversity of talent and depth of experience combine to drive innovation and mitigate risk. Every day at IntelliDesign interdisciplinary clusters of people can be seen picking apart and solving shared challenges with rigor and imagination.

Our Founders

Four become many.

In 1995, Andrew and Shelley Ward teamed up with Chris and Robin Bishop to form a company creating medical devices, instilling quality as a fundamental part of IntelliDesign from project one. Quality continues to be central in all we do; it matters, and is always in demand.

Since inception, our founders have fostered an environment of ideas and imagination, trial and error, technical skill and tenacity, sweat, and small wins. Our ‘Intelli-culture’ has evolved, making us both, the harshest critic of our processes, and a committed advocate of our people and products.

Today, in the presence of innovation, we continue to ask hard questions, seeking to attain exact, often unique, specifications in our journey to create game-changing products for our customers.
