The OakTec business was founded in 2002 as a partnership (Oak Technical Services) and has retained this trading structure ever since. Our innovations and grant funded R&D have been carried out within this framework. As a partnership OakTec is not listed on Companies House. In 2021/2 OakTec turned over circa £1.3 M on R&D and technology development projects.
CAGE Technologies Ltd (CTL) is our trading business. Registered as OakTec Power Ltd in 2016 it remained dormant until 2021 when our first commercial products were developed. At this time the name was changed to CAGE Technologies Ltd to better reflect the CAGE brand and this business is now selling CAGE engine and generator products. Company number 10199434
In order to grow rapidly CTL is now raising funding and in March 2022 a pitch deck and extensive business plan has been prepared to share with potential investment partners. This focusses on sales of gas powered products to sectors such as construction using bioLPG and other clean gas fuels, CAGE hydrogen powered products beginning with generators, and CAGE biogas generators now being sold to global customers.
For several years OakTec has worked closely with partners including Calor (SHV Energy), Jaguar Land Rover, Sistema Bio, Sutton Power, Advante, the HS2 Rail Project, Imperial College London, Lancaster University, UCLan, EP Barrus, Helical Technology Ltd and many others.
OakTec has been supported in developing CAGE Technologies by Innovate UK, BEIS, MoD, the Niche Vehicle Network and the EU through Horizon 2020. Partners have co-invested. OakTec won £40,000 prize in 2014 as the UK winners of the Shell Springboard Innovation competition.
