The recent merger of CamdenBoss and i4innovations' ‘Smartboxx’ brand caused a long-term customer to pose a question…


‘Is there another enclosure manufacturer able to offer such a comprehensive range of products and services?’


When you consider the newly re-branded company’s ability to offer everything from PCB potting boxes to ‘drive thru’ kiosks the answer has to be no (?).


Customers now have a 10 strong design engineering team to call on who are conversant in rapid prototyping, fabricated and mass-produced moulded enclosures. Our engineers are specialists in offering enclosure solutions with the ability to assess the project, market and budgetary demands of customers in diverse markets and applications.




CamdenBoss have traditionally been strong in the standard ‘off the shelf’ enclosure market. Recent changes in operational capabilities and a strong customer focus have re-invigorated the company’s ‘customised’ product offering. Re-purposing modern CNC machinery and additional investment in digital printing capacity has seen a reduction in lead times and increased production flexibility.




The addition of ‘Smartboxx’ has introduced the ability to manufacture enclosures without tooling to the stringent budgetary, compliance and timeframe requirements.


Advances in design and production methods give engineers the ability to reduce time to market whilst having a real input into the development of bespoke enclosure solutions. The ‘no tooling’ method offers the ability to alter design features during concept, prototyping and throughout a product’s lifetime to allow for changing market conditions and compliance criteria. 


One of the real changes brought into the CamdenBoss group is it’s use of rapid prototyping techniques. By bringing the capability ‘in-house’, the company now offers a ‘product lifetime’ enclosure solution.

Design and development with a seamless transition from a ‘no tooling’ prototype and medium sized (5000pcs) production runs, through to development of rapid prototyped and vacuum cast samples into large run batch manufacture. Taking an enclosure from concept to mass production all under one roof.



All this may come as news to some people who know CamdenBoss for the comprehensive range of connectors they have offered for 50+ years.


It will therefore come as little surprise that CamdenBoss have not stood still here either.


The company will roll out a progressive ‘new product introduction’ to further address the market needs with its 2.54 – 10.16 comprehensive range of terminal blocks fulfilling the PCB, screwless and pluggable requirements.

These are covered extensively in the new ‘01’ catalogue which brings together for the first time the company’s full e-mech offering. A single resource focused specifically for design and sourcing engineers, provides design relevant information in a new format which mirrors the recently re-launched website.

The re-branding of CamdenBoss, along with the integration of Smartboxx, has given the company an opportunity to take stock. They’ve retained their core strengths, built on them and integrated a design led forward thinking team.

“Our future plans revolve around a progressive new product introduction policy in conjunction with design led solutions.” stated Michael Crowther the company’s new Sales & Marketing Director.


“The ‘01’ catalogue signifies a new start or ‘re-set’ of our business aims. However, when you scratch the surface you still find the core, successful CamdenBoss products and hugely experienced Sales and Technical Support teams". (See full product ranges and catalogue)
