Our History

Fen Consultants was formed in 2009 by Rob Voisey, an engineer with more than twenty years of product development experience. His mission was, and remains, to match talented engineers with companies that need a hand to realise their project goals.

For more than fifteen years Rob has managed engineering teams in the embedded consumer and professional electronics industries, building exciting products with global reach, working with world class engineers. Some of those talented people now apply their craft for Fen's clients. Many of our contributors have worked together over many years and as such are well positioned to hit the ground running. Our four key consultants have 85 years of combined engineering experience.

Our consultants are based throughout the UK and beyond, but we have our roots in England's Silicon Valley - the area around Cambridge known as the Silicon Fen. From this concentrated melting pot of technical creativity it's hard to find an area of expertise that cannot be sourced within a few square kilometers.

Our clients are often located far from Cambridge, indeed sometimes far from the UK. We utilise a range of collaborative methods and tools to work effectively with stake holders around the globe, however large or small the project. We also work on-site with clients and their suppliers when this makes sense, often adapting for a particular QMS or process.

We specialise in the embedded technology space including consumer and professional electronic devices of all shapes and sizes. However our technical reach is much wider with recent projects having embraced scalable web applications, mobile development and media production.

The scope of our projects varies to meet our client's needs, from full lifecycle product design and realisation to the contribution of a device driver or PCB. Often we're called upon to troubleshoot existing designs and production issues. Whether your project will take hours or years, we're keen to help.
