Hallsten Innovations Ltd.


Hallsten Innovations is a custom electronic product design, software solutions, engineering services company with an IoT focused development team. Or said in another way, we love the fusion of innovative tech, business, people… i.e. the physical world interacting with the digital world. In business since 2012 and with decades of shared experience, we've seen our designs delivered through manufacturing with over 5 million devices shipped worldwide.

Our proud mantra is “Innovators who get things DONE right” and we are certainly not scared off from early stage napkin ideas. We welcome them with our "Free Napkin Reviews" approach.

Our team leverages core competencies in the following areas all executed from an user-centric design methodology:

  • Industrial design paired with mechanical design
  • Electronics and rugged sensor design
  • Wireless communications hardware and protocols
  • Embedded software
  • Full-stack software
  • Mobile app / Web app / Cloud implementation
  • Napkin -> Prototypes -> Commercialization
  • Manufacturing scale up / support

Our back-end services are valued by our clients and help realize goals of early detection, predictive data analytics, security, and diagnostic monitoring goals of connected devices and systems.

We have offices in Ohio, Chicago, and the UK with a talented team of experts that serve clients across the United States and Europe. Our clients appreciate our breadth of experience, holistic / systems level view, professionalism, our work ethic, and our adherence to keeping projects on-time, on-spec, and within budget.
