Six years after doubling its UK manufacturing space, Elcometer has announced another expansion.

The coatings inspection instrument designer and manufacturer says it will expand its production capabilities in Manchester, UK. Elcometer says it doubled the size of that facility six years ago.


Elcometer will add 17,200 square feet of manufacturing space in Manchester, UK.

The additional 17,200 square feet of manufacturing space will allow Elcometer to “meet increasing demand for their coating inspection and ultrasonic NDT range of test equipment,” according to the company.

New Products, More Demand

“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,” Michael Sellars, managing director, said in a statement.

“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 company has existing production facilities in California and in Liege, Belgium. Founded in 1947, Elcometer provides equipment for coatings inspection, concrete inspection, and industrial metal detection.
