About Cussons Technology
Cussons Technology was founded in 1876 and specialises in the development and manufacture of teaching and research equipment for mechanical engineering and allied subjects. Our customers are tertiary educational establishments worldwide, research institutes and government training establishments and the research departments of national and multinational companies.
In addition to the educational product range a Division handling automotive research equipment and facilities was developed and complemented by new automotive teaching products which we continue to develop.
Further expansion saw the company acquire the rights to the well-respected German manufacturer Kempf & Remmers marine hydrodynamics research and naval architecture systems and products. Cussons’ K&R brand continues to grow and today includes a range of compact educational marine hydrodynamics and maritime studies resources.
The automotive and marine expansions of our core mechanical, fluid and energy-related range have helped to consolidate Cussons’ position as a leader in the supply of reliable, well-designed and supported, high quality solutions for educational and research institutions worldwide.
At the heart of Cussons’ philosophy there has always been an understanding that student commitment – so critical for success – is most effectively engendered by interesting, well-designed hands-on experimentation. Our current equipment offer continues to embrace this principle and incorporates modern computer technology for data acquisition and control.
The subjects Cussons specialises in are thermodynamics (including heat transfer, refrigeration, air conditioning and steam engineering), automotive technology, fluid mechanics, process control and instrumentation, theory of machines and applied mechanics plus a renewable energy range covering wind, wave, tidal and solar energy studies.
In addition to supplying individual items of equipment, Cussons also undertakes complete turnkey projects for the design, supply, installation and commissioning of entire laboratories, specialising in those for steam, automotive engineering and marine hydrodynamics . We are fully ISO 9001 compliant.
