Captec and Cove: Specialist engineering heritage

With 57 years of experience and a reputation for quality and dynamism, Cove represents a tried, tested and trusted brand in the precision metalwork engineering and electro-mechanical industries and is a natural fit for the Captec Group. Captec and Cove have been in business together for over a decade, combining to work on custom-integrated enclosures for mission-critical applications in the defence and healthcare industries.

Based in Farnborough with an 18,000 sq. ft. factory, Cove has a skilled team overseeing defence and aerospace projects from prototype builds to full batch production. The team specialises in bespoke precision metalwork engineering including custom enclosures and portable component housings for high heat, chemical and EMC environments. This complements our expertise in designing and manufacturing specialist computing equipment for operation in challenging environments and complex applications.

A complex process, simplified

The skill and expertise required to realise the design and coordination of all parts in the specialist metal and electro-mechanical integration process can easily be underestimated or taken for granted. We can engineer a complete solution tailored to your needs.

With the support of two companies, we remove the headache of managing multiple suppliers and leaving you to focus your resources where they matter most.
