Paul Charlton

Chief Executive Officer

PDL CEO Paul CharltonPDL is an engineering consultancy. We provide complementary engineering analysis consultancy services to our clients which mitigates their risk, shortens their development timescales and reduces their development costs. Our core skill sets are Global Dynamic Analysis (OrcaFlex®), Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). We have 3 businesses; one in Europe (Hexham), one in North America (Houston) and one in Asia (Singapore).

We aspire to be the “go to” people for advanced engineering analysis consultancy services at our current and future clients and the “go to” company of choice for our current and future employees.

People are the key to any business and we are certainly no exception to that rule. Our engineers are held in high regard by our clients and deservedly so. Since our inception in May 2000, our engineers have supported some of the most technically challenging projects at some of the most notable regional, national and international entities. Over 80% of our new business comes from existing clients. This is a testament to the quality of the work that we deliver on a consistent basis and the trust and the strong relationships that we establish with our clients. Now into our 17th trading year, we have shown sustained growth and net profitability year on year. We have no debt, no external finance and no external shareholders. This means that we set our own agenda and then we run the business in accordance with our own beliefs and our own values.

Thank you for visiting the PDL website. We have tried to give you a flavour of who we are and what we do and I hope that we have gone some way to achieve those goals. That said, the only way to get a true feel for how a company goes about its business is to meet with and talk to the people themselves, so with that in mind, feel free to give me, or any one of my colleagues, a call at any time.
