All hardware design, software design and manufacturing of products are done in-house in their Liverpool headquarters giving them an unparalleled level of flexibility and control. In 1994, Brainboxes became a part of the first wave of companies to achieve the global ISO9001 quality management standard. In 2001, they were one of the first companies to move to the new ISO9001:2000 standard that covers every aspect of Brainboxes design, manufacture and customer support functions. They demonstrated their commitment to wireless technologies and their technical expertise when in January 2001, they became one of the only fifty companies worldwide to have a Bluetooth SIG qualified product - the Bluetooth PCMCIA card.
