Tritech Opens New Factory in Ulverston
04 December 2014
Tritech International Limited [Tritech] has relocated its design and production operations to a new site within the Cumbrian town of Ulverston.
The company has been operating in Ulverston since 1986 and in July 2013 began ground works on a new purpose-built building. The new facilities will enhance Tritech’s production capabilities providing larger and more modern work areas to support its increasing operations. Significant investment has been made in test facilities including two test tanks and a new high-pressure test chamber; both critical to ensure equipment reliability in the harsh subsea conditions in which Tritech’s customers operate.
Tritech’s operations in the town began as Swift 943, trading as System Technologies (ST) in 1986. In November 2006, ST (and Ulvertech Engineering Ltd) merged with Tritech during its acquisition by specialist electronic, safety and environmental company Halma p.l.c. The site complements Tritech’s sales and customer support office in Scotland (Westhill, Aberdeenshire) and the design site in Edinburgh. Today, Tritech is owned by Moog Inc., a worldwide designer, manufacturer and integrator of precision control components and systems.
