Our History

From Coal to North Sea Oil & Gas

Since the first Abtech enclosure was supplied to the British Coal Board in the early 1970’s; and our initial growth through supply of stainless steel enclosures to the fledgling UK North Sea oil industry, Abtech has never lost sight of our goal to become a leading supplier of to both industrial and hazardous area markets. Thus in addition to our range of market leading enclosures, we are continually looking to provide solutions to customer’s unique requirements.

Channel Tunnel

Abtech rose to one such challenge when the UK/France Channel Tunnel was being constructed and produced over 12,500 junction boxes and emergency lighting actuators to the most exacting of standards. With the emphasis on reliability and safety, we designed a solution that more than met the rigorous specification laid down by the client Eurotunnel.

Hazardous Area Certification

As we move further in to the 21st Century, Abtech are once more expanding our range of products and services to help our customers cope with the ever-changing international standards. Our entire hazardous area enclosure range now complies with the latest international IECEx and European ATEX legislation including AEx’e’ for the BPG, SX and ZAG ranges.

LED technology

But our innovation does not stop there. In response to market demand Abtech have now launched a range of hazardous and heavy industrial lighting. This luminaire range encompasses not only traditional HID and fluorescent light sources but also an ever increasing portfolio of LED solutions encompassing the latest technologies that this rapidly growing industry can offer.
