Building on our firm foundation and three decades of engineering design success, we have grown to be one of the world’s leading companies specialising in the design and development of equipment operating in harsh environments. We have a passionate and committed team with the skills, expertise, dedication and focus to provide the highest value to our customers with bespoke quality products and services.
In September 2015, having successfully outgrown our original brand, the company was split between Supacat and SC Innovation under the SC Group umbrella. This exciting formation allows us to grow and develop our joint capabilities while bringing innovative solutions to our customers. Blackhill Engineering and Proteum (created by SC Group to focus on the Marine sector) also became part of the Group.
The company was established in 1981, and has been developing specialist vehicles and other equipment for both civil and military customers ever since.
Our range of off-road wheeled and tracked vehicles has continued to expand as new requirements for high-mobility cross-country vehicle designs make ever greater demands on the company’s Engineering team. With offices in Devon, England and Victoria, Australia we are certified to ISO 9001:2008 and deliver all the disciplines of vehicle design, including engineering, testing, prototype manufacture, certification, low-rate production, and fleet support.
The company is well known for its skill in developing solutions to unusual customer requirements, and during the late 1990s designed and developed the High Mobility Transporter (HMT) to meet the needs of primarily military customers for a light‑to‑medium load carrier. It now manufactures this product under license from Lockheed Martin.
Despite a period of considerable growth SC Group has retained its focus as ‘an innovative design house’. A market leader in the development of high-mobility vehicles, we have proven ourselves to be the place to come for good ideas that can be transferred into the very best products.
