Gavin Barnett



Established In 1991, we are a specialist product design consultancy concentrating almost exclusively on Vending, Self-Service, Kiosk and the emerging automated retail markets, providing unique solutions to your projects requirements.

Every project is run by a project manager who calls upon known associates, ensuring you receive the expertise you require.

Our flexible yet specialist approach allows projects of any scale, shape or nature be dealt with appropriately. We can help nurture an idea from its very conception; provide technical expertise part way through, or help realise a prototype into a fleet of units for your business....

Working closely with the client we are able to create Innovative products, often resulting in Intellectual property (IP) which can be filed and substantiated for our clients to take to the global market.

Our facilities and location allow us to receive large products and work on them in house, ensuring effective testing, development & refinement. Whilst also allowing us to present project outcomes in a showroom, inside our main office.

All enquiries are handled professionally and in the strictest of confidence, with non disclosure agreements (NDA's) available on request.

At K6 we believe that good design is about creating products and solutions that satisfy customers needs and user's expectations whilst simultaneously exploiting technological advances to provide a forward-thinking, innovative and fresh approach.


We bring together well established manufacturing partners from around the UK to guarantee quality products and delivery schedules, utilising our in house CAD systems, we can offer accurate visual representations for presentation, development schedules, as well as physical concept models to assist client interpretation as the project progresses.

As well as design K6 also offer a personal project management system, meaning that you only deal with one person who understands your requirements throughout the life of the project.

Whilst providing a complete and comprehensive design service we have naturally developed expertise within several key areas related directly to our core competencies of vending, self-service and automated retail. We are highly attuned to these markets and related technologies, constantly exploring all advances in payment, remote management & digital signage to name a few.
