When the Company was formed in 1956, the UK was a large manufacturer of specialist electronic and mechanical scientific instruments. Examples ranged from microscopes to spectrum analysers and a wide variety of other laboratory test and measurement equipment. Since our formation the industrial base has changed but the UK retains strong positions, especially in research, development and manufacturing, in fields as diverse as satellites, aerospace, medical equipment and leading edge electronics and electronic components.
Our members today come from a wide range of industries including education, measurement and control, medical and biomedical, communication electronics and lighting components. We also have an architect!
