Our vision is to provide leading-edge scientific, mathematical and strategic consultancy, scientific software development and research to public and private science-based organisations.
Quintessa was founded in 1999 with the vision of providing an enjoyable and fulfilling working environment in which talented scientists and mathematicians can provide the highest quality research, consultancy and software to public and private science-based organisations. Quintessa operates at the interface between academia and industry, facilitating the application of leading-edge knowledge in a timely and cost-effective manner.
We celebrate the fact that our principal assets are talented individuals with leading edge expertise in their chosen fields and a passion for problem solving. We are an employee-owned company, and an active member of the Employee Ownership Association, where everyone is empowered to contribute to operational and strategic decisions.
Our services cover decision support, geosciences, mathematics, systems assessment and software development together with the provision of customised training in all these areas. Currently our projects are primarily focussed on the safety and environmental consequences of nuclear power and carbon-based fuels. However, we are always keen to broaden our horizons to other technical challenges aimed at ensuring the sustainability of planet earth.
We are proud to work for some of the world’s leading science-based organisations and strive to build trusted partnerships with them in order to understand and address their needs. To achieve this, we embrace collaborative working with other organisations and individuals in order to provide the best possible solutions for our clients. To date we have carried out more than 600 projects for over 50 clients in 20 countries.
Quintessa works to a Quality Management System that has been independently certified to operate in accordance with the requirements of ISO 9001:2008, including the requirements of the TickIT standard for software development.
