Defining your challenge

Assessing your goals and challenges ensures we understand what you need from your equipment.


You’ll meet with PTL to discuss your application, contractual requirements, budgets, and timelines, all under strict confidentiality. You’ll also be taken through how we approach unique design and build applications.


After a kick-off meeting with you, our team goes to work. They’ll consider your space, workflow, goals, and existing equipment to produce basic models, sketches, layouts, and process-flow diagrams for you to review.


You’ll have the chance to review the designs, and work with the PTL team to make any adjustments, so you know it will suit you exactly.
