About Us

Our story

"We are proud of the innovative and inclusive culture we have created at Like Technologies and are passionate about supporting our employees, community and our environment."

Kate Houlden, Managing Director


Like Technologies was founded in 2006 by Alan Hobson and Graham Wilcox, as a response to the need for obsolescence management solutions in industry. Our founders’ ambition was to provide leading technical expertise while maintaining a personal level of service. The business has now grown into a national provider of bespoke industrial electronics and software solutions, but our core values remain the same.

From modest beginnings in Morecambe, we have expanded into purpose-built premises near junction 34 of the M6 in Halton, Lancaster. Our office spaces, training room, large workshop & specialist electronic equipment testing and repair facilities accommodate our growing workforce. We are proud to provide skilled employment for local people in the North West of England.

Some of our clients

Our clients include businesses in the nuclear and power generation sectors, such as EDF, Sellafield Ltd, Thales and Cavendish Nuclear. We are always keen to seek out new opportunities where our expert technical skills can provide bespoke value-for-money solutions.

Committed to nurturing the electronics industry in our local area

Like Technologies is a founding member of the Electech Innovation Cluster, a membership-based organisation designed to support the Electech industry in our local area.

The aim of the cluster is to provide social and economic benefits to our members, whether that be supporting funding opportunities, improving the availability of skills in our area or winning new business.
