St John’s Innovation Centre-based Cambrionix Ltd has been confirmed as one of the fastest growing technology companies in the UK.
Cambrionix designs and manufactures innovative USB-charging and data transfer solutions for mobile and electronic devices, such as tablets and smartphones, cameras and headsets.
The company was recently ranked number 10 in the 2014 Deloitte Technology Fast 50, a ranking of the 50 fastest-growing technology companies in the UK.
Rankings are based on percentage revenue growth over the last five years and Cambrionix grew a massive 2989% during this period. The company was also ranked first in the region of Cambridgeshire and East and first in the sector of Electronics.
Kevin O’Hara, Managing Director, said: “This award is recognition of the hard work put in by our team who are continually looking at ways to improve our products and our services. We have been fortunate in recruiting good people who have all played their part in bringing us to this point.
“Our growth has come about as a result of our commitment to quality and innovation and continued investment in research and development. We are also committed to excellent customer service and ensuring we can meet and surpass our customer expectations.
“This is the beginning of a journey for us and we have a lot more exciting new ideas and products which we will be bringing to market.”
Cambrionix was founded in 2007 by Steven and Victoria Tyson who first saw an opportunity to offer sophisticated home and office charging stations, prior to the widespread adoption of tablets.
In 2012, they engaged O’Hara to manage and drive the company’s growth, which was rapidly accelerating, most notably, in US and European markets.
The company’s 14 staff are mainly responsible for product design and software development. They provide designs and specifications to select UK-based manufacturers who deliver high quality finished products.
Finding the right people to grow this model has not been easy, but O’Hara described the company’s base at St John’s Innovation Centre as “an ideal environment for a small fast-growing company like theirs, with its good infrastructure and range of useful services at their doorstep”.
