About Us

As the timeline below shows, we were established over 170 years ago, in 1848, as “inventors, engineers and specialists”.

Over time, we have grown and become known across the world as experts in medical, security and veterinary equipment. Over the last 25 years, we have expanded our overseas sales activities in developing countries, becoming heavily involved in turnkey tender projects – dealing with projects from project consultancy stage to design, project management, procurement, shipping, logistics, commissioning and training.

We are proud to handle more than 400 NHS accounts in the UK as well as holding long term contracts with UNICEF, who are well known for having rigorous selection criteria before accepting any company as a supplier.

In addition, we supply security equipment to the UK government to whom we also provide ongoing maintenance and aftercare.
