Welcome to the home of the Worshipful Company of Scientific Instrument Makers


A selection of quotes from Scholars, Apprentices, Freemen and Liverymen.

Being a member of a City Livery Company makes you a part of a long tradition of philanthropy, charity and pageantry. While part of this is the enjoyment of formal dining in our own hall or in the fantastic and historic Livery Halls of other Liveries in the City of London, our Livery has a unique involvement in the promotion of science and engineering in the City and with Government. As a professional engineer, being a member of the Livery is an important part of my responsibility to my profession and the wellbeing of the country.
The livery is made up of highly knowledgeable and experienced technologists and therefore represented a pool of resource that could be called on at need. Especially in the area of Safety, I felt much more comfortable talking to customers, knowing that I had the Livery to fall back on, if needed.
As a student, membership of the Company has given me access to a wealth of experience and knowledge. I have found it a friendly and supportive environment and the events and presentations have enabled me to pursue my interest in scientific equipment.
