About us

Concept 5 North Ltd was established in 2008 to provide manufacturing direction and leadership to renewables companies transitioning from R&D to full commercialisation. Since that time C5N has expanding to support all areas of engineering and product development, and to support technical services associated with investors or engineering companies.

We are highly flexible and can deliver support and attention a larger 9 to 5 consultancy cannot. If your project requires 24/7 working to deliver at impossibly short timescales we have the resource and attitude to deliver this. If you need representation or reviews anywhere in the world we can drive or be on a flight today. We are here to support you and will feel we can deliver projects others may not class as feasible. Give us a call, we are always open to discuss potential projects however impossible or outlandish they may initially appear.

The Managing Director of C5N is Richard Blackburn, a Professional Engineer with 20 years experience working for and consulting with Blue Chip companies. The work has included living in France, UK, Ireland, Germany and Japan, and spending extended periods in the USA. Richard graduated in 1997 from Brunel University with a B.Eng(Hons) in Mechanical Engineering, is a Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (since 2010) and registered with the Engineering Council as a Chartered Engineer since December 2001. In 2002 Richard was awarded the title of Eur.Ing by FEANI, the Federation Europeenne d'Associations Nationales d'Ingenieurs.

Concept 5 North carries Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance as expected of an Engineering Consultancy. Details can be provided upon request.
