A Little History
Custom Electronic Design are based at Charter Place in Egham. The Company launched in March 2009 having previously been known as Audio T Custom at the same site since 2006. Managing Director, Dave Adams, chose the site in Egham for its proximity to London and the M25 providing access to the company’s client base predominantly in London and the South East. With 2 floors of offices and showrooms as well as dedicated parking spaces for visiting customers it has proved to be an excellent choice of location.
Custom Electronic Design have built a valued client base with many customers returning with new projects as they move or extend, testimony to the high level of service, care and attention committed to every project no matter how large or small.
The core team have worked together for many years and have common interests; a passion for recorded and live music, cinema and film, and enjoy the creativity and challenges of smart home technology, centralised control systems, lighting design etc.
Pulling many different electronic components together and making them work seamlessly and consistently requires knowledge and experience. Regular training courses and keeping up to date with the latest technology is paramount to maintaining a slick professional team.
