Huxley Bertram was founded in 1979 by William Bertram and Stewart Huxley. They wanted to provide mechanical engineering solutions to varied problems for any industry or relevant application. The company’s first location was in a large garden shed. In 1983, it then moved to Cottenham, Cambridge, where it was based for 31 years. Now the business is in Waterbeach, Cambridge, where it has been since 2014.
