Elcometer starts work to double manufacturing capacity


Manchester, UK (July 2013) – 6 years after doubling their manufacturing facility, Elcometer are pleased to confirm that in August 2013 work will commence to expand their production capability in Manchester, UK.


Elcometer’s additional 17,200ft2 (1600m2) of manufacturing space will allow Elcometer to meet increasing demand for their coating inspection and ultrasonic NDT range of test equipment.


“In recent years Elcometer has launched a number of new products which have significantly increased the demands on our existing production facility,” commented Managing Director, Michael Sellars. “This expansion allows Elcometer to meet the growing demand for our test equipment and widen our product portfolio, enabling us to enter new markets ahead of our strategic plan.”



Over the past three years alone Elcometer have introduced a number of industry leading test instruments, including their new Elcometer 456 coating thickness gauge with scan probe – allowing users to inspect more than twice as fast as ever before; the lightweight and versatile Elcometer 280 pulsed DC holiday detector with internal jeep tester and the Elcometer 130 salt contamination meter which allows users to measure soluble salts up to five times faster than other Bresle equivalent methods.


This expansion to Elcometer’s Manchester facility is in addition to their existing production facilities in Liege, Belgium (manufacturing a wide range of test equipment for testing the physical properties of coating’s formulations) and in California, USA where Elcometer’s range of Ultrasonic thickness gauges and flaw detectors are designed and manufactured.
