"It’s rare to find a company that has the in-depth technical knowledge and expertise in mechanical engineering, but also the same level of expertise in A-Class surfacing and a subtle appreciation for the desired aesthetic intent and product desirability that the design team require.  Raymont-Osman possess these skills and attributes.
 Their work has made a significant difference to our business.  A great example has been their contribution to the V-Class goggles project which enabled the design intent to be realised and not compromised during the design development and production stages of the project.  This resulted in the achievement of a Red Dot award for the product. In a nutshell, you receive 100% commitment and attention to detail from Raymont-Osman.  They care deeply about the end result and they offer an expert service throughout every stage of the design and innovation process."

Pentland Brands Limited 

Pentland Brands is a global family business bringing some of the most loved active and footwear brands to millions of people around the world.

They own a number of leading brands including Speedo, Berghaus, Canterbury of New Zealand, Endura and Mitre.

Speedo’s V-Class goggles are a new, premium range of swimming goggles, combining performance with style. There are two styles available, Vue and Virtue.

We’re extremely proud to have worked with the talented Speedo Aqualab and Design teams to assist with the design and development of these goggles. Our Mechanical Engineers converted the design to be suitable for manufacture, ran simulations to check the strength, performance and suitability for injection moulding, developed the lens optics with minimal distortion, worked with the supplier to achieve outstanding quality and subjected the goggles to rigorous physical testing to ensure the customers have a robust and long lasting pair of goggles.

These goggles are a real team effort between many partners in many different countries and because of their uncompromising style, performance and quality, they won a Red Dot Award for Design and Innovation in 2017.
