Inneva are an independently owned, full service product design and development company founded in January 2006 by Chris Hankinson, Mick Hudswell, Hugh Christopher and Ian Harrison.

Since the company’s incorporation, the real challenge has been to understand where best to focus our activities. With such a breadth of knowledge and experience, identifying a particular area or market on which to concentrate our talents has proved a challenge. The common denominator throughout this time has been our desire to help our clients from all regions and markets to deliver technical solutions which were not obvious to the trained eye.

To date we have worked on child, aircraft and automotive seating, lightning protection systems, unmanned reconnaissance crafts and even developed and launched our own fitness product and child seat safety system. These years have been critical in forming our identity and establishing our vision that we hold today.

From our facility in Castle Donington, we have been able to support our clients from the initial brief, through to serial production if required.
