Cambridge Consultants is a world- class product development and technology consulting firm, specialising in helping clients achieve the seemingly impossible.

Our brilliant engineers, scientists, mathematicians and designers tackle more than 300 challenging projects each year for companies throughout Europe, the US and Asia. Our clients can be small, innovative start-ups or large blue-chip organisations. But what they have in common is bold ambition to break new ground and gain competitive advantage through disruptive innovation.

Widely seen as a founding father of the Cambridge technology cluster, we’ve been at the forefront of innovation for nearly 60 years – with a string of world firsts to our name. These range from the first wireless implanted cardiac pacing system for heart failure patients to the first ‘mixed mode’ (digital and analogue) ground-to-air radio system controlling air traffic over the majority of the planet.

As well as medical technology and wireless communications, our work includes consumer products, industrial developments, oil and gas technology, and digital health breakthroughs. Our varied mix of skills and industry expertise creates a unique melting pot of innovation. For our clients, this translates into a faster time to market, an increased return on product development investment and lower risk. We have all the in-house skills and facilities needed to help clients right the way through from creating innovative concepts to taking products into manufacturing, while our technology consultants help maximise product portfolios and technology roadmaps.

For more than a decade, we have grown every year – both in the UK and across key international markets – and we now have a global workforce of 750. In the last three years alone, we have doubled the scale of our US East Coast presence in Boston; acquired the 140-strong Synapse product development business on the West Coast of the US; and opened sales offices in Singapore and Japan; as well as growing our UK facilities. Cambridge Consultants is part of Altran, a global leader in engineering and R&D services.
