Tritech Opens New Factory in Ulverston
Tritech International Limited [Tritech] has relocated its design and production operations from Morecambe Road to Oubas Hill, Next Ness Lane, Ulverston, LA12 7LB.
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.
The new facility has electrostatic discharge flooring throughout the manufacturing and stores areas, to ensure Tritech's advanced electronic equipment is manufactured in a clean and anti-static environment. The building uses the latest technology for heating and lighting to ensure operations are performed with lower energy consumption and has also been carefully designed to complement the immediate environment.
Tritech's sonars provide acoustic imaging for underwater vehicles performing obstacle avoidance, target detection, measurement and survey within major industries such as Oil & Gas and Defence and include the distinctive Super SeaKing and the Gemini range as well as a full range of ancillary equipment.
Jacqueline McCloy, Finance Director, Tritech International Ltd, commented:
“We have made this major investment in Ulverston to support our successful and growing business. The new facility provides much improved facilities for the development and production of our products, as well as a first class work environment for our employees.”
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. Today, Tritech is owned by Moog Inc., a worldwide designer, manufacturer and integrator of precision control components and systems.
