Company Summary

Here at APD, we’re switched-on and passionate about what we do. You could say we’re the quirky creative types, techie gurus, connoisseurs. Personally, we call ourselves geeks with goals (G.W.A.G’s) and we do things differently around here.

So what do we make? Right here – in Hull – we develop some of the most critical software and infrastructure for the national emergency services. We serve customers in every corner of the country, with one in every two UK police forces using APD technology today. We also support the transport and aviation sectors. You’ll find APD technology at the heart of both the London Underground and Gatwick Airport. Further, afield, we’ve secured contracts in Sweden at Karolinska hospital and with the Swedish Police, as well as in Ireland, Iceland and Dubai Airport. Were here today to talk about a completely different type of Engineering. Do you have a passion for information technology? Do you have an unwavering attention to detail? Are you curious? Do you continuously strive to understand how things work?  If you have answered yes, then why not come and speak to us!
