About Us

Mandar Solutions Ltd was born from the long standing, and hugely respected Wood & Douglas Ltd. Tom Bathurst and Matthew Gregson were both integral employees, who saw an opportunity to build something new and exciting from the experience they had gleaned whilst working under the mentorship of Alan Wood.

Based on a seedling idea for a brand new radio tile, Matt and Tom have sourced only the best engineers, buyers, and project managers combined with additional skills from specialist contractors and suppliers to form an elite team. With the team now growing to include sales and CAD engineers, Mandar are now in a position to bring our products to market with a fully skilled, highly competent team in place to carry out research, design, manufacturing, deployment, and support.

Based on the expert team now in place at Mandar Solutions Ltd, we have already managed to secure relationships with customers in the defence, utilities, environmental, and Health Service markets.
