About Us

A little of our history

Nuvotion was formed in 2015 by co-founders Duncan Hames and Nick Owen. We are based in Melbourne, Australia. The word ‘Nuvotion’ is a portmanteau of the French word for new (nouveau), innovation and education. Nuvotion was conceived whilst the two co-founders were undertaking an internship at the University of Bordeaux. The capybara was chosen as the company mascot because it, too, was an ‘alien’ in France, yet it found a niche and thrived in its new environment. Upon returning to Melbourne, Nuvotion wasted no time in setting up an operational base. Inspired by the resilience, resourcefulness and adaptability of the capybara, Nuvotion seeks to integrate these qualities in everything we do. We have adopted the capybara strengths as core values. Nuvotion has a strong focus and engagement with small and medium sized business. Our drive and passion is engineering solutions for our clients needs. Our expertise is in electro-mechanical design, electronic design and sensor interfacing.
