ABOUT PIVOT UK
Pivot UK is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pivot International. We are a product design, development, and manufacturing firm with key strengths in software development, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and industrial design. Pivot International combines industry expertise and experience with reliable on-time delivery services to offer you the best global manufacturing resources that will easily suit all of your manufacturing needs.
WORLD LEADER IN OUTSOURCED PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT AND MANUFACTURING
Pivot International was originally founded in the United States — specifically, in Kansas City in 1972. The company began as a product design and development engineering firm and was one of the first U.S. product development firms to jump into global sourcing. In 1985, Pivot opened a procurement office in Taiwan, and four years later, a manufacturing division in the Philippines. Since then, we have acquired numerous companies to expand our capabilities, and now have offices across the globe, including the United Kingdom. Our core service offerings include electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, software design, industrial design, project management, contract manufacturing, electronic manufacturing services (EMS), prototyping, supply chain management, data management, business development, and regulatory compliance.
Pivot has nearly 50 years of expertise in the field of product development and manufacturing. Positioned as a world leader in outsourced product development and manufacturing, Pivot offers the seamless convenience of working with a U.S. company and the financial advantages of utilizing its own in-house, offshore, tooling procurement, and manufacturing capabilities.
Pivot International has two UK subsidiaries, Wideblue based in Glasgow and A2E based in Livingston. Wideblue specialises in optics, photonics and medical devices and was originally the in-house design and development department of Polaroid Corporation. Wideblue offers low volume initial production runs here in the UK, before movement to alternative lower-cost manufacturing sites. A2E has significant strengths in the oil and gas market, metering, software, and the design and development of ruggedized products for harsh environments.
