Located in Cambridgeshire, Mykon manufactures innovative surface materials, which are used in domestic, public and commercial building applications.
Mykon was the brainchild of Dr Mike Ashmead, having originally used aluminium honeycomb as an energy absorber in crash test barriers, Dr Ashmead identified the potential for a range of striking architectural solutions using honeycomb technology.
With its unique geometric design and exceptionally high strength to weight ratio, the benefits of using aluminium honeycomb in architectural products were immediately obvious.
Believing light to be one of the most versatile resources available to architects and interior designers, Dr Ashmead was inspired to create products that, whilst aesthetically pleasing, did not form a barrier to light.
Mykon is a division of engineering group Encocam – a global manufacturer and exporter of aluminium honeycomb for over 30 years. Our aluminium honeycomb has been used in the London Eye, Heathrow Rapid Transport Pods and the interior of Eurotunnel vehicle shuttles.
Mission & Philosophy
The Mykon philosophy is to create unique and aspirational surface solutions, inspired by the beauty of natural light. Our highly skilled craftsmen combine time honoured techniques with cutting edge modern technology to manufacture the very best in translucent composite applications.
Utilising the exceptionally high strength to weight ratio of our manufactured aluminium honeycomb core and encasing it between outer skins of toughened polycarbonate or glass, we can create functional, yet visually stunning hand-crafted panels. These applications delight the senses and transform any environment by diffusing and reflecting light.
Achieving and upholding the highest quality standards is a value of utmost importance to Mykon. To consistently achieve excellent quality, we adhere to strict regulations and client requirements to attain total customer satisfaction at every level of our provided service.
In order to give our customers the best possible service, Mykon is certified to the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System and ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System.
