Insight and Confidence to Create Outstanding Products

Today, engineers are using virtual prototyping to streamline their development processes. To maximize the potential of this digital transformation, virtual modelling and analysis must be aligned with physical testing and measuring to generate cleaner and more actionable data.


We provide customers with expert insight through our advanced instruments and test equipment, augmented by the power of our software and services. This equips customers with the ability to reduce time to market, improve processes, quality and yield. In this way, HBK know-how creates value for our wider society, as our customers design, develop, test and manufacture their products to make the world a cleaner, healthier and more productive place.

A committed and enduring partner

Our customers are as diverse as our products and stem from a wide range of industries, many of them fiercely competitive. Our focus markets include automotive, aerospace and defence, weighing technologies and telecom audio.


But we offer far more than solutions for today. Our commitment does not end when you buy a product from us. We are most effective as your trusted partner for the future, helping you work through your challenges to achieve long term value.


The benefits of this long-term collaboration increase over time. The more time we spend working together, listening to your feedback, the more thoroughly we can understand your specific challenges and help resolve them.


And the earlier we are involved in your product life cycle, the sooner we can work out how to optimize your product development and maximize sustainable value.


In this way, HBK has moved beyond being simply your component provider to becoming an on-going partner within your business, developing and delivering advanced technology with your needs in mind, and ultimately helping you to maintain your competitive edge.
