Allectra Manufacturing

From the beginning, Allectra’s aim has been to develop a range of electrical feedthroughs for UHV setups and to become the biggest European manufacturer of those components.

In the last seventeen years, we have evolved from being primarily a distributor to almost full-time manufacturing. As well as operating two facilities in Germany with engineering and scientific capabilities, one of which is also home to our R&D team, the company also has a purpose-built facility in the UK. This investment means we have more control over the manufacturing process and can make safer guarantees to our customers on critical aspects such as quality, consistency of our products, pricing and delivery time.

Our machining capabilities include numerically controlled milling machines and we have installed a new four-stage ultrasonic cleaning plant, which can clean products to our high-vacuum standard (10-11mbar).

We can ship around the globe and have a full-time technical sales team to assist with design, manufacturing and delivery queries.

We have an online platform for researching and ordering items and customers can request a quote for a custom design here.

Our Customer Philosophy

We offer our customers both standard and special components on short delivery and at competitive prices. The relationship we have with our customers is very important to us and we develop product ranges specifically to meet our customers’ needs. This philosophy has led to year on year growth of the company.

Our technical sales advisors work closely with our customers to obtain the optimum price and delivery for the required parts.
