About us

ADE was formed in 1978 as part of what became known as the "Cambridge Phenomenon". ADE is one of the longest established companies in the computer aided engineering (CAE) and computer aided design (CAD) fields.

For 30 years ADE comprised three chartered engineers each with in-depth experience of designing, developing and applying computer software to engineering problems:

David Gilbert BSc DIC CEng MIMechE

Peter Gibbs BSc CEng MIMechE

Roger Billsdon MSc BSc CEng MIET

Then, after David retired we were joined by Ken Wallington who brought a wealth of experience of managing and implementing CAD systems and of training and supporting engineers in their use.

Since ADE Ltd was formed in 1978 our core business philosophy has remained the same; we concentrate on producing quality work for reasonable prices.

Because so much of our work is repeat business, we believe our customers must be satisfied with the work we do for them.

The applications outlined on this web site are just a few examples of our work to illustrate the scope of our skills and expertise. Please contact us if you would like further information or if you have any comments.
