GB Innomech is recognised as one of the UK’s leading Automation specialists, applying their skills to both new, early stage businesses as well as some of the established FTSE 100 companies.

Size is not important; but we take great pride in our ability to establish strong long term relationships at both the organisational and individual levels.

Established since 1990 and based in the award winning innovation centre, our carbon neutral offices and workshop, within the Cambridge technology cluster we work with companies worldwide to reduce cost and improve the quality of their products through automation. We work from providing feasibility studies to providing fully validated solutions. A strength, which often separates us from others, is that we can always make what we propose and design!

Some of our customers have asked us to build repeats of their products. In addition to our Design and Development solutions we provide a Repeat Build service for small volume, high value products which we can, if you require, install, train and service throughout the world using our sister company Nexus Intelligent Engineering.

Our risk based approach, where we undertake risk assessments throughout the project, and where we solve the ‘real’ problems, which are often different to those first perceived, has led to a strong reputation for providing innovative solutions within regulated environments. However we apply this approach to all of our work and have delivered successful projects within the following sectors:

  • Medical
  • Renewables
  • Industrial Automation



Steady sustained growth of our business required space for creative and innovative thinking on behalf of our customers. The result was the Innovation Centre, a purpose-built 6,000 square feet environmentally friendly facility, comprising offices and workshops, just outside of Ely.

In January 2004 the award winning building, designed to allow for easy growth, was opened on what was previously a brown field site.

Its design reflects the ethos of the management team; it is efficient and eco-friendly, using traditional building materials with environmentally friendly features that include:

  • Under floor heating system fed by a ground source heat pump taking heat energy from the surrounding earth
  • All-round extra depth double-glazing, with special coating on south facing units
  • Special triple glazed and coated front feature windows (south facing) with integral automatically controlled blinds that track the position of the sun
  • Solar vacuum tube water heater for the hot tap water.
  • A rain harvester to collect all rainfall on the building and use it to feed the toilets
  • A heat recovered fresh-air ventilation system
  • Bio digester and reed bedded pond to process all the waste and add an attractive feature for both staff and visitors, not to mention the local wildlife
  • In-house designed building management and control system, with individually controlled temperature zones, ‘persons present’ detection and intruder alert
  • Low-energy lighting system with level sensors and auto switch-off when ‘no persons’ present
  • Refrigeration grade insulated panels in the factory walls
  • Landscaped grounds to encourage natural flora and fauna, with high hedges for screening

Working within the Cambridge area gives us ready access to a number of internationally acclaimed bodies and a whole network of specialists.
