From concept to reality........

Who are we?

  • Based in Sheffield, in the North of England, ICMEA-UK is the UK arm of an established Italian innovative engineering company - ICMEA SRL
  • ICMEA (www.icmea.it) was founded in 2006, in Bari (Italy) by Claudio Amorese, who previously led a team working on diesel injectors at Fiat. 
  • Since then the Italian team has grown and developed and now contains engineers with expertise in a range of disciplines who are able to work as a team to find innovative solutions for complex problems.
  • The UK arm was established in 2018 to respond to an obvious need for this type of service within the UK.  The growing UK team work closely with their Italian colleagues to continue the team approach to work.

What do we do?

  • We are an innovative Engineering consultancy company, and work in partnership with a range of other organisations to provide innovative, bespoke solutions to problems where an Engineering solution is required.
  • We have a team of Engineers with expertise in a range of Engineering disciplines who are able to apply their knowledge / experience and a team approach to solving “tricky” problems.
  • Through our expertise in Computer Aided Design, Computer Aided Engineering, Electrical and Automation Engineering and Process Engineering, and our team approach, we can help companies “turn their ideas into reality” – through intelligent design, and innovative approaches.
  • We provide the design for a solution, but can also build pilot scale equipment / rigs.

From concept to reality.....

  • Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Aided Engineering (CAE), Process Design
  • Computer modelling (CFD, FEA)
  • Electrical and electronic design, automation and data acquisition (PLC – DCS – SCADA)
  • Mechanical, plant, equipment and testing
  • Electrical systems; hardware and software development for automation
  • Prototype development, design of experiments and experimental measurements



The ICMEA approach.....


Understand what you want to achieve, and advise on how this could be done.

ICMEA-UK will always work closely with our customers to ensure that we provide a quality bespoke service which exactly meets the customer’s needs.

This is our general approach to each new challenge:

We start by spending time talking to you to understand what you want to achieve, and where you are up to in terms of development so far.  Using our knowledge and previous experience we can then advise you on what might be possible and make an initial suggestion as to how your engineering problem could be addressed.


We are more than happy to do what has never been done before.

Be assured that we’re happy to step into the unknown, and do what hasn’t been done before, so if your idea is innovative, we’re keen to work with you.  We are more than happy to talk about how we can work with you on new and exciting innovations.

Problem solving

We use our expertise and knowledge to solve your "tricky problem"

Once we’ve got a good idea of what you’re trying to do, we will start to work out how the process will work, from first principles if necessary.   Our experienced, multi-disciplinary team use computer modelling (CAD, CFD, FEA, etc) and fundamental engineering formulae to develop models of the process and the structures that it requires.  Once we have a clear understanding of the process, we use our calculations and modelling to develop a design of the process, support structures and control system.  We then prepare the engineering drawings etc that are required for manufacture.

Construction and Commissioning

We will build your system or pilot rig and commission it for you

If you need us to, we will construct your system, using qualified subcontractors where necessary.   We will also provide full documentation for the system.  System manuals will be based on robust HAZOP processes as required.  We can also arrange CE marking (UKCA from 2021), if required.

If we’ve built a system or pilot rig, we will commission the system – installing it at your site and ensure it is working for you before we leave. 

Our team

One of ICMEA's strengths is the team approach to solving problems.  We are a team of skilled, experienced, knowledgeable people, based in the UK and in Italy, and are able to make use of the most appropriate people within the team to work on each specific piece of work.  We have Engineers from a range of disciplines, as well as professional support staff - and in combination we're a great team!
