Piers Chapman founded Cambian Engineering Solutions in 2011, with the vision of applying advanced engineering principles and quality processes to manufacturing in engineered wood.

With a background of an MSc in Engineering Design and Industrial Management at the University of Sheffield, he utilised his experience in high speed precision machinery to create an efficient production ecosystem.

His passion for cycling, rock climbing and the outdoors led to many major projects in the Action Sports market, which continues to form a core part of the business.

Building on this experience, the company has diversified to serve a wide range of markets, staying true to its founding principles of high precision engineering in wood.
