An integral member of the Design Team, Principal Design Engineer; Paul Robson, has been with Marl for 4 years. After training in Product Design at University Paul initially joined the Company as Design Technician, where he assisted Graduate and Senior Engineers in the general running of the Design Department, before progressing to Graduate Engineer; so it's safe to say Paul knows all the ins and outs of our Design department!
Paul was instrumental in the development of the Orion QD - Quantum Dot Linear Lighting, designing an extrusion which simplified the production process.

Paul says of his experience working at Marl:
"When I first joined Marl as Design Technician I would issue drawings, make prototype PCBs on the Router, and ensure systems were up to date and accurate, as I progressed to Graduate Engineer I gained more responsibility with project based work.
Now every day is different, I work on new product developments, and help the Production Department where necessary with test currents or jigging. Days can vary dramatically depending on the highest priority. We are never quiet in Design, there are always new projects coming in."
