British Ultrasonics Technology Manufacturer wins the Queen’s Award for International Trade for Outstanding Continuous Growth in overseas sales over the last six years.

2019 Welcome from the CEO

Who we are: 5 foundations

  • We are a British Ultrasonics technology manufacturer. We design and manufacture in the UK.
  • We were established in 1987 and have been market leaders for over 30 years.
  • We export 89% to 109 countries: 40% to Asia, 10% to the Middle East, 15% to Europe, 17% to North America and the balance to South America and Africa.
  • There is no product amongst our core technologies where we cannot be “cheaper, faster, better”
  • Exporting is at our core and a consequence of conducting fine science and manufacturing in the UK.
  • Great science is based on the integrity of it, and that distinguishes how we compete.
  • We offer 20 year through-life technical support to all our products and systems, including trade in credits and upgrades.

What we do

  • Our core Safesite® and Safeship® technologies, which comprise the FLEETSAFE and FIRETEST packages are in the monitoring of:

  2. Watertight integrity of marine structures such as hatch-covers, multiple cable transit areas and watertight compartment doors with ABS Type-approved Portascanner® Watertight ultrasonic hatchcover tester.
  3. Compartmentation testing in buildings and civil engineering structures to supplement Door Fan Testing with Portascanner® 520 room integrity tester.
  4. Condition monitoring through Portamonitor® bearing indicator, Portagauge® ultrasonic thickness gauge and Portasonic® 2.FL0 portable flow meter.
