GX welcomes new product design engineer

03 November 2021

Over their thirty year history, GX has designed commercial solutions for a range of industries; a key element to their success is the breadth and experience of their design team who help turn brilliant ideas into commercial reality.

The latest addition to their team is Lucy Williams. Lucy spent four years at University of Nottingham studying Product Design and Manufacturing Engineering (Meng), graduating with a Masters in 2017.

Fresh from her studies Lucy took time out to enjoy 6 months working in a ski resort, before heading to Australia. Initially she started an internship at a MedTech company based in Sydney’s Australian Innovation Centre, before taking a full time position there.

“It was a fantastic opportunity to get hands on experience. I helped design heart valves and created precision surgical instruments used in targeting brain tumours,” Lucy recalls. “I was lucky to spend time travelling Australia – before curtailing my travels in April 2020 just before Australia closed their borders.”

On her return to the UK, Lucy worked as a design engineer for a lighting company, creating bespoke lighting products. She also assisted GX, working on a freelance basis, designing components for a medical project. When an opportunity arose to become a permanent member of the GX design team at she leapt at the chance.

“A large part of my degree focused on designing products for manufacture. I love being involved at the concept stage of a project, then helping to design the functionality of a product – it’s really rewarding being part of the process,” says Lucy. “Joining GX allows me to be more client facing and part of the design journey from conceptual idea to finished product.”
