Father and Son team, André and Andrew Becker.
Cambridge Dynamics was started in 1977 by Malcom Henson and David Patmore as a specialist machine design company. The company was incorporated in 1978 and in 1980 was the first company to move into the new Stukeley Meadows Industrial Estate in Huntingdon. The new 7000 sq. ft. space allowed the company to move the manufacture and assembly of the custom machinery in house, a hugely advantageous process which continues to this day.
In 2000 Malcom Henson retired as MD selling his share in the business to the then Technical Director, David Patmore. Cambridge Dynamics stayed strong through the 2002 and 2008 recessions and is proud to have emerged a respected name in custom machine building.
By 2012 David was looking to retire and the company was put up for sale. As a prestigious engineering firm Cambridge Dynamics caught the eye of Andre’ Becker who was looking to expand his business interests. After a careful process the sale was finalised on the 18th of February 2015 with David staying on to ensure a smooth handover and a continued focus on a high quality service.
Over the course of 2015 the company has invested in new personnel and equipment and is ready to provide high end custom machines for years to come.
