About us

Our story

Scytronix was founded in 2010 by Dr Hideaki Page shortly after he lost his job during the 2008 economic downturn. Scytronix was born in part out of Dr Page’s necessity to generate an income, but also as a vehicle to pursue a lifelong passion for science and engineering, and frustration of not being able to satisfy these interests in convention employment.

Scytronix is now a team of engineers who share a similar mindset, the need for invention and creativity in their work, and the need to test their skills on challenging real-world problems. We are hands on engineers for whom engineering and science is a way of life rather than just a profession. We relish technical challenges and can be found always working on projects paid or otherwise.

This passion has provided us with the experience, gained at the coal face in numerous industries, to solve your problems. Our combined expertise covers physics, optoelectronics, electronics, firmware, software, numerical analysis, mechanical engineering and more.
