MANCHESTER, UK – Six years after doubling its UK manufacturing facility, Elcometer confirms it will start expansion in September 2013 of its production capability in Manchester. 

Elcometer’s additional 17,200 square feet of manufacturing space will allow the company to meet increasing demand for its 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 facilities around the world,” said 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.”

The expansion of Elcometer’s Manchester facility is in addition to the company’s existing production facilities in Liege, Belgium, which manufactures a range of test equipment for testing the physical properties of coating’s formulations, and in California, where Elcometer’s range of Ultrasonic thickness gauges and flaw detectors are designed and manufactured.
