    Fast track & new products

    If you’re planning on introducing a new product but haven’t the time to develop it yourself, or if you need to satisfy unplanned demand in a hurry, let Cogent Technology provide the help you need. We offer rapid product prototyping to help you get your ideas to market as quickly as possible. 

    With us as your prototyping partner, you’ll benefit from years of experience in the design, development and manufacture of new, innovative products. Working together, our production engineers and your designers can make your product more robust and ready for mass production.

    Hub for design

    Making sure that the design is actually ready for manufacture prior to production can save you all sorts of problems later down the line. Designing for manufacture not only improves the quality of your product, but also reduces costs and manufacturing times. 

    Cogent has a dedicated design hub which has been set up specifically to help you plan for manufacturing at the design state. We won’t tell you what your design should be, but we will provide expert advice to help you improve its manufacturing efficiency, and we will help you identify components that may be becoming obsolete, thus preventing headaches later on in the production process. 

    Offshore manufacturing

    Cogent Technology has an established network of international partners who can provide offshore PCB assembly and electronics manufacturing at a highly economical rate. By having us manage offshore manufacturing on your behalf, you benefit from the long term investment we have made in building and maintaining these relationships – reducing your costs without the increased overhead.

    Offshore manufacturing is typically used for high volumes of less complex designs, which can be produced at a much lower cost outside of the UK. In many cases, we split our clients’ portfolios between UK and offshore manufacturing according to the demand and complexity of each product.

    Quality is monitored and verified by us, giving you complete peace of mind. Find out more about offshore manufacturing at Cogent Technology online. 


    Quality is central to everything we do, and it goes far beyond achieving certification. We are constantly investing in new ways to maintain and improve our working practices and quality standards, so that customers can be 100% satisfied with the finished product. We use the latest, state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment to achieve high levels of efficiency, and we employ highly trained engineers with all the appropriate skills for the job.
