Scottbrannan Ltd was established in 2014, after seeing a gap in the market to provide estimation support to medium size companies within Europe. I have worked within the Cost Estimation field since 2002. I am fully conversant with the latest estimation techniques and can offer support in most companies from electronics to machined components and more. During my career I have been involved with setting up the Cost Estimation system currently being used at Aston Martin Lagonda. I have also assisted the Ford Motor Company in a radical overhaul of the Database used by Ford globally.
