About Us


The Curve was founded by the elite group of engineers and leaders who previously designed, built and ran the UK’s most successful Global Telematics Platform, from the ground up. The company they built is a global success and currently employs more than 100 people in Sheffield.

After finding success, and united by their passion for technical excellence and fostering the very highest process standards, the team started The Curve to help others design and deliver their ambitions.
