About Us

Our purpose is to solve today’s hardest engineering problems in sensing, data collection and communications.

Plextek is a consultancy at the heart of the Cambridge technology revolution. With a 30 year history of providing complex engineering solutions, we continuously innovative to push the boundaries of engineering and technology today.

We grow and develop ideas for our clients and have a history of turning our own innovation into successful spin-out technology companies.

The Plextek Process starts by studying and understanding the key challenges that our clients wish to address. We then explore a range of ideas and potential solutions, bringing fresh thinking to the problem.  After selecting the most appropriate approach we proceed through design, development and verification stages and, if required, into manufacture.  Our experience in successful delivery guides us to select approaches that are inventive, work in practice, can be delivered on time and to the agreed budget.

Solving today’s hardest engineering problems in sensing, data collection and communications.

To do this we need to square a difficult circle, which is to take on work with high technical risk but at the same time to provide certainty in outcome. Solving the most intractable engineering problems cannot be done by following others along a tried and tested route.

We need to identify and explore entirely fresh approaches. Sometimes a number of different approaches will be required before we open up a path to our goal. We have the ability to embrace the risk inherent in this type of work and yet know how to drive the risk down as the project progresses such that we can guarantee a successful outcome. This is particularly critical in projects with the most stringent product standards such as are found in defence, aerospace and medical applications.

Project Engineer, Embedded Systems

Our people provide solutions that our customers simply could not source from elsewhere.

We cannot push the boundaries of what is possible technically without the best science and engineering talent. This is combined with amazingly diverse people who excel in different parts of the problem space.

We are experimenters who are comfortable working with unfamiliar problems, not afraid to take risks and explore radical approaches.

Our systems engineers have the ability to engage with very complex, multi-dimensional problems and bring them all together into a cohesive whole.

Our designers have tremendous depth of expertise in their specialist areas, know the limits of engineering technology and employ techniques to ensure that the finished product or system will work all the time, every time.

Clearly, we cannot push the boundaries of what is possible technically without the best science and engineering talent. But it is not enough that we combine the brightest and best technical skills with decades of engineering experience.

We also need to have staff who excel in different parts of the problem space.

Support Engineer, Communications Systems

Our customers range from small start-ups to some of Europe’s most prestigious engineering companies.

When we bring our energy together and harness it on solving the problem at hand, the outcome can be spectacular. We specialise in expanding the boundaries of what is thought to be possible.

We have a great history but never stop innovating.

Plextek is the development partner of choice for 300+ major global organizations, government bodies and ambitious companies.

 

We are ready to do business now. We are Plextek.
