About us

Kinesys is a technology company specialising in the design, build and sale of motion control systems for the entertainment industry. These skills go hand in hand with a service-driven approach to our clients and a keen desire to listen to and act upon feedback from users ‘in the field’.

About Kinesys


Our focus is on supplying products designed and built to the highest quality. Meticulous care and attention at every stage of manufacture results in systems that are robust, hard-wearing and above all reliable providing years of trouble-free service, be it on the road or installed in a venue.


The right features where they are needed and when they are needed form the core of our design. Constant feedback from end users ensures that our products are some of the easiest to use on the market enabling users to spend less time setting up the equipment and more time using it.


Even the easiest to use and most reliable equipment will need support from time to time. We understand this and offer a second to none service to our customers. Helpful, knowledgeable and free technical support is always available as well as product training either on-site or at our facility.

We are a global company with a long history of providing the right solutions to companies worldwide.

Dave Weatherhead


Dave co-founded Kinesys in 2003 after his previous industry experience highlighted a gap in the market for premium quality automation products backed up with exceptional service.  His time is now focussed on creating a company that not only creates great automation products but also a great environment to work in.

Dave and his 5 year old daughter both started Karate at the same time.  Dave hopes that he can get to black belt before she does.

Martin Honeywill

Training and Support Director

A key member of Kinesys since 2005 Martin now heads up our technical support department as well as overseeing product training for our customers worldwide.  His in-depth knowledge of the Kinesys product range as well as approachable teaching style makes him a hit with all the customers he meets.

Outside of Kinesys Martin is on a mission to cycle the length of the UK but in sensible small chunks rather than in one go.

David Bond

Kinesys USA - C.O.O and Head of Sales

David is the face of Kinesys USA. He splits his time between visiting customers and assisting with their enquiries all while managing this expanding company.

David started his career in audio but made the somewhat unorthodox career change to Rigging and Automation and never looked back (or down).

Kate Powell

Operations Manager

Kate leads the customer team at Kinesys.  She oversees the day to day operations ensuring that everything runs smoothly from quotation and order right through to delivery and shipping.

As if that wasn’t enough Kate is also first in line to taste-test any cakes that come into the office.  This is worked off by regularly kayaking around the waterways of the UK.

Dan DuFaur

Technical Sales Engineer

Dan produces quotes for customers as well as system diagrams to help explain how the list of products all connect together to make Kinesys systems.  He also puts together the product manuals that help explain how everything works.

A self-confessed Comicon junkie Dan’s knowledge of obscure Star Wars references is unrivalled.  His metitucously detailed and hand-crafted Ghostbusters outfit at Halloween is also something to see.

Heather Hobbs

Financial Controller

Heather heads up the finance department which is in charge of keeping all our books in order and ensuring that everyone gets paid, both staff and suppliers.  With two companies in different continents, customers across the world and numerous different curriences to juggle there is a rarely a quiet moment in that part of the office.

Heather leads the walking club at lunchtimes and we mean literally leads.  She walks so fast that no one is able to get in front of her.  We think there could be an Olympic speed walking record on the cards!

Viccy Blanchard

Quality Manager

Viccy is our Quality Manager and she ensures the team stays focused on ensuring high quality products and services for our customers. She is continuously improving our processes and procedures and while perfection is unattainable she ensures we land as close to the mark as physically possible.

A passion for travel and Italian food keeps Viccy centred, and her adventures have seen her travel as far as the gorgeous Hawaiian island of Honolulu.

Jess Butler

Shipping and Office Administrator

Jess works tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure that everything gets out to our customers on time and in great condition. She is also the voice on the end of the phone when you first get in touch with Kinesys.

Fluent in Russian and an accomplished tennis player and singer, Jess can often be found at gigs around London, or in a restaurant partaking of the latest culinary delight. When she’s not out and about, she winds down by playing with her puppy Gelert (Gelly for short).

Jerick Rodriguez

Mechanical Design Engineer

Jerick takes the lead in the mechanical design aspects of our products.  From the enclosure design of our controllers through to our machine designs and adaptations.

As well as being a keen volleyball player Jerick loves photography, both being behind and in front of the camera so watch out for Kinesys videos featuring his presenting talents.

Charlie Heard

Electronics & Electrical Engineer

Charlie’s primary role at Kinesys is creating the many circuit boards that we use within our products.  His skills range from choosing the components and designing the schematics to laying out and then prototyping the final designs.

Charlie has played both Rugby and American Football in the past.  He also has a vast knowledge of pub games.  Whether the two are connected we may never know.

Alberto Troisi

Production Technician

Alberto is one of our trusted team of workshop technicians who assemble Kinesys products from the thousands of individual components and assemblies we keep in stock.

A leading light in the Kinesys social scene Alberto is a regular attendee at the various events that both the company and individuals host throughout the year.  To his credit he is also often one of the people offering lifts home at the end of the night as well.
