We're a developer and stockist of electromechanical products, supplying a wide range of components including electric actuators, DC electric motors, and many related accessories.

This website provides an ecommerce outlet for some of our existing products, but we also offer bespoke product development services, and can offer many more options and customisations than are listed here. 

We have helped to bring a huge variety of customer projects to life over the 10+ years that we've been operating, and are proud to provide unrivalled customer support in the industry, as testified by our Google Reviews

From our start in November 2011, we have quickly grown to become one of the most prominent suppliers of linear actuators and associated electrical and mechanical hardware in the United Kingdom, releasing many exclusively-developed products along the way. 
The company is owned and managed by Ewan Gimson, a graduate of Mechanical Engineering from Bristol University. The company inherits the family name and a long tradition of work in design and technology industries. From the beginning, the business has been designed to be flexible to demand, sometimes employing engineering students alongside full-time technicians to deal with project work alongside stocked-product offerings. We embrace new technologies whenever possible, and as an online-focused business we are able to offer significant time and money savings over other engineering firms for a range of items and services. We definitely do not cut corners though, and strive to provide unrivalled customer support, as our reviews on Google hopefully testify!
As a climate-conscious business we are proud to be part of the Bristol Green Capital Partnership, started to promote sustainability in local businesses. We operate from an industrial unit with solar panels on the roof along with excellent thermal insulation, the majority of our day-to-day waste is recycled or reused, we use as many recycled and/or recyclable packaging materials as possible, and most of our staff cycle or walk in to work each day rather than driving. 
From 2020 we also begun to fund tree planting (over 30,000 trees sponsored to date) and high-quality carbon offsetting projects through Ecologi
Custom Projects
Not only do we stock products for sale through the website but we also frequently provide bespoke customer modifications and develop new products on an application-specific basis. Our experience with microcontroller development makes us well placed to develop more-complex automation systems alongside mechanical design elements. 
If you are looking for help with your electrical or mechanical project, or to develop a new product, then we may be able to provide a solution. Please get in contact with your requirements and we'll let you know what we can offer.
Just some examples of the services that we can provide are listed below:
Bespoke wiring harnesses & connector sets
Customised motor and actuator controller systems
DC motors, actuators and geared transmissions designed to application requirements
Automated control systems utilising sensors (IR, break-beam, ultrasonic, temperature etc.) and custom-programmed micro-controllers
CAD design services, for electromechanical projects
Multiple-actuator synchronising control systems
LCD and OLED based display solutions for real-time control feedback
Arduino platform development (software and hardware)
Bespoke control panels for wired and remotely operated systems
Relay & solid-state control circuits for automated equipment and accessories (such as indicator LEDs, sounders)
