About Us

C-Kore Systems Ltd

C-Kore Systems Ltd is a fast-growing and innovative company originating from the Zetechtics group – designers and manufacturers of the award winning Jupiter subsea control systems and awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation.

We have a team of dedicated designers and engineers who are passionate about making life easier for subsea engineers by bringing fast, modern and reliable testing techniques to the offshore industry.

Greg Smith explains this engineering passion: “It’s been vital to keep C-Kore very easy to use while giving it the rich set of features our customers need. You can change settings, run measurement routines and view results all very easily. I’ve always believed you can gauge a product’s quality from its appearance. C-Kore isn’t just another tin can, it’s a beautifully engineered device.”
