What we do

Cair: Providing care over the air.

We believe everyone’s lives can be improved through innovative solutions and better design. That’s why we pride ourselves on creating telecare and smart technologies that we would all want in our homes. Our technology is designed with everyone in mind, and our aim is to create solutions that are inclusive and improve quality of life; we want to make a difference in the lives of everyone who uses our equipment. Continually striving to make the future better, our talented and creative team work closely with our customers to create the solutions that are really needed, fuelled by a genuine care for people and the environment…and a mug of Yorkshire tea or two.

Our founder’s mantra:
“Design the product for your loved ones, your nearest and dearest.”

Made in Yorkshire

That’s right! All of our products are designed, developed and manufactured in Halifax. Our modern manufacturing facility is ideally placed near the M62 in the centre of the UK, to service our customers wherever you may be. The kettle is always on, so if you would like to organise a factory tour click here.

CAIR’ing for us all

Caring for the environment is very important to all of us at Cair. We are taking a number of steps to reduce our carbon footprint and improve our environmental performance. As part of this effort, we are striving to eliminate ALL plastics in our packaging whilst ensuring our devices are designed for easy disassembly and recyclable materials are used wherever possible. We have even created our own range of eco cleaning products that are used throughout our facilities. True to our ethos of technology driven design, we have also installed 4 electric car charging ports that we encourage our staff and visitors to use. We also have a large 50KW array of solar panels on our factory’s roof, which is able to service a portion of our factory’s requirements, eliminating our demand on the national grid.
