About CW Applied Technology (Shannon) Ltd

CW Applied Technology is an owner-managed business, which came into existence in 2015 as a result of a Management Buy-Out. John O’Connell ( is the founder of the company and for the 10 years prior to completing the MBO, had been Managing Director of Connor Winfield Ltd. Our primary focus is on the design and manufacture of innovative electronic solutions.

Design : As mentioned, CW Applied Technology came into being as a result of a Management buy out from Connor Winfield Ltd on June 1, 2015 but we have our roots in the 15 years that proceeded that date both in terms of our skills and our values. Both prior to becoming an independent company and since then we have focused primarily on the design, manufacture and sales of high precision components and modules in the field of Communications. GSM, GPS, Sigfox, Bluetooth, LoRA & Wi-Fi have all been central to product solutions we have developed for clients. As the technology requirements are common across many market verticals in regard to IoT, we serve customers in the Automotive, Military, Power, Ag-Tech, Healthcare & Consumer industries.

Manufacturing: Our approach to manufacturing is what we call Advanced Creative Manufacturing. This approach combines 5 key components…

  1. Low volume, short series production with mass production quality. Typical order sizes are in the 10pc to 1000pc range.
  2. Efficient, Lean and Agile Manufacturing service, taking concept through to manufacture.
  3. Design-Thinking concepts applied to Manufacturing. Improving manufacturability and cost.
  4. Cost-effective ‘craftsman-type’ manufacturing solutions. Tailored solution for bespoke solution seekers.
  5. Making Local…cutting logistics costs with shorter lead and cycle times and parts made to order.

Time to market with high-end, personalised technology solutions is what we see as our ‘holy grail’ and key differentiator. We manufacture to exacting automotive and/or military standards, while we are certified to ISO9001.

In 2020, we developed our first ‘own’ product to help organisation from medical facilities to hotels, schools, food processing companies, sports clubs and many others fight back against the pandemic and help protect both their staff and clients. While 2020 was a horrendous year for the world, we look back with a sense of pride and achievement at what we developed and brought to life to help people and companies who were looking for help.

CW Applied Technology (Shannon) Ltd - Business All-Stars Accreditation

Message from John O'Connell - Managing Director, CW Applied Technology (Shannon) Ltd

We are absolutely thrilled both to have won the Business All-Start Accreditation for 2021, but also, the All-Star Innovative Product of the Year 2021 Accreditation. For SMEs, its always difficult to be noticed and valued. Many of us punch well above our weight and do so with the backing of strong and talented teams.

The achievement of these Accreditations today owes massive credit to the team at CW Applied Technology. We have always prided ourselves on our innovative capabilities both in product development and manufacturing. Its wonderful recognition and that it has happened a result of our development of the Muv-X, our Room UV Steriliser, is humbling and extremely satisfying at the same time. We set out to develop a product that would inactivate the SARS-Cov2 virus on air and on surfaces and the market we were aiming to serve has very much welcomed the product.
