Company Overview

Based in purpose-built 56,000 square feet premises with good access to the motorway network, the Swelco subcontracting division of Altron Communications Equipment has a proven track record in engineering spanning over 60 years, with skills and a depth of experience that enables even complex and high quality finish components to be consistently produced.
As a whole, the company has the ability to produce engineered items from 2 dimensional, intricately profiled components through to complete assembled products, using a wide range of traditional skills coupled with the latest CAD/CAM and CNC machine technology.
Laser cutting is a speciality, with capabilities to cut up to 25mm mild steel and 20mm stainless, with bed sizes up to 4x2m. Recent investments have included lights-out automation allowing Swelco to provide the most competitive offer.

We understand the demands on business today and are able to offer a competitive reliable service with minimal turnaround time from receiving your order, either utilising our own fleet of vehicles or by the most efficient cost-effective means.

REINVESTING FOR THE FUTURE
There is an ongoing investment programme across the company to implement the latest technologies and improve systems and processes. This investment programme will, we are sure, give our customers confidence in the ability of Swelco/Altron to continue meeting their demands in the coming months and years. Major investment took place in 2008, involving laser profiling with automation, hollow section laser cutting and latest CNC press brake equipment.

SWELCO/ALTRON'S COMMITMENT TO QUALITY
We are dedicated to supplying components and products of the highest quality. Not only finish quality - which is our ultimate aim - but right from the design stage (based on many years experience and investment in software aids), through to material supply from reputable suppliers and onto investment in the latest technology to aid manufacturing processes.
