Oaksmere is a privately-owned business that has traded since May 2016. It is a collection of experienced professional engineers with a vast wealth of knowledge and experience of the food retail industry spreading across many decades. There is a desire to offer well thought through solutions for all our prestigious clients which is at the heart of everything we do. The business is partly owned by all the original starting members of staff and this continually results in an inclusive approach and an insistence that long term client relationships are valued and nurtured.
We routinely measure and review our output, looking always for continual improvement. Our engineers are distributed throughout the country with our head office being located in Ipswich, conveniently located one hour from both central London and London Stansted airport.
The vast majority of our staff have worked together previously as part of Emerson’s UK Climate Technologies division prior to the divestiture of that business in 2016. Prior to the 2006 Emerson acquisition this group also worked for another privately-owned company of the same name as the current business. Our team of engineers and support staff have extensive experience supporting most of the UK’s premier food retailers over several decades.

Most recently Oaksmere have used new technologies (Matterport and NCTech) to create 3D tours and maps of the school. This has helped to support the school with community bookings and transition systems when welcoming new students. Westbourne Academy is a successful school who’s motto is: ‘Aspire Achieve Advance’. We are happy to be able to be part of the team helping them to make a difference to young lives. The virtual tours show in detail; the school grounds, classrooms and key areas and will be used to enable children to familiarise themselves with the school before they arrive. This can be particularly useful for students with special education needs or limited English. We are very pleased and excited to have been given the opportunity to be able to offer our services and work with a very professional team to create an extremely useful, interesting and modern tool using available technology.
Oaksmere are also the proud sponsor of the Ipswich Athletic under 9’s football team. These are a talented bunch of exciting youngsters that continue to develop, work hard together and enjoy playing within this youth club. We wish them all the best and hope they can achieve great results.
