Cambridge Consultants was established in 1960 and is widely recognised as a ‘founding father’ of the Cambridge Phenomenon – Europe’s leading high-tech cluster.
The company was born out of the vision of three Cambridge University graduates that wanted to “put the brains of Cambridge University at the disposal of the problems of British industry”. We’ve evolved substantially since then, attracting the best talent from around the world to form our global team of engineers and scientists. Together, this expertise enables us to develop breakthrough products and services for our clients with greater market success, speed to market and lower risk.
Many of the high-tech companies within the Cambridge cluster can trace their roots back to Cambridge Consultants. This includes over 20 spin-out companies, of which 3 have been amongst Cambridge’s >$1Bn capitalisation firms – Cambridge Silicon Radio (CSR), Xaar and Domino.
With offices in Asia, Europe and USA, we serve clients internationally, delivering solutions to the world’s toughest technology challenges. However, whilst remaining loyal to our heritage, our ability to innovate continuously is what differentiates us.
Our varied mix of skills and industry expertise creates a unique melting pot of innovation. We specialise in the consumer, industrial, energy, medical and telecommunications markets and increasingly find innovation occurring in the intersection of these markets.
Cambridge Consultants is part of the Altran Group, a global leader in engineering and R&D services with a revenue of €2.1bn in 2016 and over 30,000 employees.
