Technology for good

We design products of value and lasting purpose which have clearly defined benefits to people, health or the environment.


Positive impact through design

Established in 2013 and based in Bradley Stoke in Bristol, Ignitec is a product design and technology company helping clients develop products which create positive change.

We work with pioneers who share our passion

Working with clients ranging from global pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers to academic teams and technology start-ups, we look for opportunities to bring about positive transformation and address issues such as health, ageing, safety and the environment.

Technology is at the heart of what we do

Designing products is just a small part of what we do, our research and development is where really exciting things are happening. We are a multi-disciplinary design and technology team with expertise spanning product design, research and development, electronics design, early stage technology, IoT and connected devices, software development and product manufacturing.

We work with pioneers of industry, harnessing emerging technologies and seeking out opportunities to apply them to today’s problems. As well as designing new sensor based IoT and connected devices we undertake major research programmes academic teams and private organisations investigating new and novel applications for emerging technologies and developing new technology where it doesn’t already exist.

I had the opportunity to develop several concepts with Ignitec over the past 12 months. Ben provided a base (at the Ignitec offices) for us to really get creative and produce together some really next generation designs for Creo Medical. The Ignitec team have all been a pleasure to work alongside over the past 12 months and I wish them all the very best. I look forward to our paths crossing again soon for further collaborations!

Thank you very much Rob and Andrew! It was really kind of you to organise this for us and you did an excellent job leading and guiding everyone on the day. Everyone really enjoyed I think. Now we just need to shake out a few real world products out of the mix!

Just a quick note to say thanks for all the effort that you've put into this task for us, it's been a real success and Peter was very pleased with the units when he was given them last night. It's been great working with you and hope that we can work together again on the next iteration.

Ignitec combined expert technical knowledge with a practical commercial understanding to help develop a really great product. Not only is their service ultra professional but it is also very creative which makes the process exciting and productive. I will continue to outsource my R&D projects to them and would highly recommend their services to anyone.

It has been a pleasure working with Ignitec. Their creativity has really helped add another dimension to our project, whilst their ability to rapidly and accurately sketch and bring our concept to life has enabled the project to comfortably meet a tight deadline. I would definitely work with Ignitec again and would happily recommend them.
