Defence Subsystems Hexes 2 415x250 - Electro-Mechanical Assembly & Fabrication

Captec > Defence Solutions > Electro-Mechanical Assembly & Fabrication

Whilst rack and IT infrastructure are critical elements of many defence projects, we also understand bespoke subsystems are often a vital part of more extensive system integrations. Such systems rarely come in a single standard form factor, and their function is as diverse as the types of projects within the defence sector.


Realising a completely bespoke sub-system, both in terms of design for manufacture and a suitable supply chain for the many processes involved, can be complex. Our acquisition of Cove Industrial Enterprises provides within the Captec Group a single point of contact to realise a sub-system design from prototype to volume production, leveraging 57 years of Cove’s manufacturing experience.
