Cubik Innovation joins the West of England Growth Hub
Bristol-based Cubik Innovation – an electronic design and manufacturing company – joined the Growth Hub this year having gone from strength to strength in the four years since they started up in business.
Put simply, Cubik help people realise their electronic product’s potential. Working with a whole range of businesses – from SMEs looking to take a product to market, to huge corporations looking to rework their existing product, Cubik work with the fantastic variety of creative inventors and entrepreneurs that the West of England has to offer.
Cubik can assist with schematics, PCB (Printed Circuit Board) layout, full design services from concept to production, software development, mechanical design and batch manufacture all from their offices in Fishponds.
They are also proud to say that all the products they work on are produced in the UK, so there is a real emphasis on working with other local businesses to put the region on the map.
It’s clear that Cubik relish this opportunity to tap into the local region and its talent, speaking to Director Paul Mullen, we found out more about what makes the West of England so special for companies like Cubik.
‘Bristol is one of the country’s most vibrant and exciting places to be at the moment, and there’s an abundance of people with brilliant ideas doing brilliant things! The area is thriving and with forward-thinking centres like the Bristol and Bath Science Park, the Bristol Robotics Lab and the Growth Hub at the Engine Shed, there’s a great support network encouraging and driving innovation.’
Paul also believes that the Growth Hub really encapsulates what the city is all about – the team are talented, switched on and clearly driven to support the region with the funds they’ve been allocated.
Cubik have the chance to work on a number of quite off-the-wall projects – and being a member of the Growth Hub will help bring them into contact with likeminded businesses. Project Engagement Officer Sam Bell has been clearly interested and invested in the exciting work that Cubik are doing – and Paul notes that she also has a great understanding of the SME landscape in the region.
Paul’s hot top tip for SMEs is that “early change is cheap change!” He recommends that people do their homework and their design research early; changing a design or a plan late on can be a costly move, so make sure you have a well thought out, well researched plan from the get go.
