Rapid. Professional. Quality.

History

Originally established to address the development needs of two cornerstone clients in the toy industry, Cross The Pacific Ltd. (CTP) quickly expanded into other sectors. In particular, CTP has now built a name for itself in the design & production of connected devices (Internet of Things). Over the past few years, we have helped a wide range of clients across various industries to bring their ideas to life and to incorporate cutting edge technologies such as blockchain into their products.

Cross The Pacific opened its doors in 2014. Since then, we've facilitated the success of companies like Charity Water, Irwin Toys and Pelagic Data Systems along with toy company Rvckvs International and established med-tech enterprise Omada Health.
