We are a part of specialist design and engineering consultancy, Plextek, which has been developing IoT and connected products and systems for more than 30 years. Our combined teams ensure your innovation translates through to de-risked and viable product development, and on to manufacture.

We are Partners

We’re an expert team with a track record across industries. We know there is no “one size fits all” for innovation and customise each collaboration to your specific need.

This means we complement your own team as a catalyst to make innovation happen.

We are TRANSLATORS

Our team is proudly multi-disciplinary bringing decades of strategic, marketing, technology and design experience from in-house corporate roles and consultancy.

This allows us to translate between functional silos and find the critical “red thread”.

We are Fresh

We’re not experts in your business.  We bring complementary experience from 100’s of previous innovation, strategy and design collaborations in other industries.

This allows us to spot limiting assumptions and provide the inspiration for creating your own success.
