Anthony Best Dynamics

Outsourcing is a common way for UK businesses to reduce costs, but for certain aspects of your operations in-house is best. That’s the experience of Anthony Best Dynamics (ABD), which supplies advanced testing systems to the global motor industry.

"The company is able to produce machinery suitable for the specialised application in which it is used"

Throughout its long journey towards becoming a market leader, ABD has retained in-house expertise in mechanical, electrical and software design. Tony Best, ABD Founder, says: "Through the effective integration of these design areas with in-house manufacturing, the company is able to produce machinery suitable for the specialised application in which it is used."

ABD’s in-house capability helped it overcome a big challenge recently. Subcomponents, which the company needs to construct machinery, have become increasingly difficult to source from third-party suppliers, so ABD invested in the manufacture and assembly of more of its finished products at its own facilities. The company now sells an increasing number of these products to China, which is upgrading its ability to develop automotive vehicles to sell into domestic and global markets.
