Products include deformable aluminium crash test barriers, crash test dummies (Anthropomorphic Test Devices), impactors, and calibration core.

Encocam is also well established in the manufacture of aluminium honeycomb core, bespoke composite panels, vacuum tables,  architectural panels, motorcycles, road safety products and other wide-ranging precision engineering services.

Mike Ashmead, founder of Encocam Ltd., began to manufacture his own aluminium honeycomb in order to extend the company’s control over its value chain. Since 90% of Encocam’s products require aluminium honeycomb it was essential that the company had its own reliable source of supply. Consequently, Encocam setup its own manufacture of aluminium honeycomb and has now become a leading global supplier with a reputation for the highest levels of quality and traceability.  As the business become more established in industries we work in, we forged new business partnerships at home and abroad. We now have offices in the UK, Spain, Germany, US, Japan, and Korea, and an agent in India.

We have been lucky enough to win several awards over the years, including EEF Future Manufacturing Awards, Hunts Post and Cambridgeshire Chamber of Commerce. Our Cellbond brand has twice been awarded the Queen’s Award for Export: International Trade, in 2017 and in 2022. This is a reflection of the skill and dedication of our employees and highlights the importance of continuous development and improvement.
