We are increasingly surrounded
by a world of sensors.

From connected shops to smart homes and even measuring ourselves through wearables and smart devices, leading consumer brands work with Plextek to leverage our 30-year experience in creating connected products, packages and devices.

Our team of designers, scientists, software engineers and hardware engineers have experience working either in-house or in partnership with dozens of leading consumer product, domestic appliance, CPG/FMCG and food and beverage brands in the USA and Europe.

  • Resolve technical sensing, communication, and data management challenges including through advanced analytics (AI/ML).
