What we do
We make highly-specialised measuring instruments and controls for some of the most technically demanding industrial applications. Our products and services aim to enhance customers’ productivity, yielding them clear benefits by helping them to work better, faster and more efficiently.
Enhancing productivity is an ever-present goal of the global manufacturing sector that in turn drives good organic demand for our products and services, particularly in high-growth emerging markets. Long-term customer relationships, strong intellectual property and continuous innovation serve to protect our market positions and enhance organic growth. We supplement this organic growth through stand-alone and bolt-on acquisitions.
Who our customers are
We serve a broad spectrum of blue-chip customers across all key manufacturing industries. We work closely with them, adapting our technology to meet their needs. After the initial product sale, we provide a range of aftermarket services including maintenance, training and consultancy support. This gives us a unique ability to anticipate and respond to the constantly changing demands of our customers and fosters strong long-term customer relationships, with the result that the majority of our sales is repeat business.

We are headquartered in the UK, employing more than 8,000 people in over 30 countries worldwide. Our people have in-depth know-how and expertise in their chosen fields and our global network of sales offices and technical centres provides local delivery and service for our customers, wherever they are based.
