A History of Allectra
Allectra GmbH was founded in 2002 in Berlin (pictured right) and now manufactures and supplies a full range of HV (high vacuum) and UHV (ultra high vacuum) components including custom products all over the world. Allectra Limited was started in 2003 in Sussex to promote the products on a worldwide basis. The Allectra sales and service network is also supported by offices in France and a joint-venture in Italy. Today, customers include universities, major Synchrotron laboratories and High Technology companies.
Allectra Limited has seen strong growth of Custom High Vacuum equipment sales to High Technology industries both in the UK, and in our export markets in France, Italy, India and elsewhere.
The company is currently building a new facility in the UK (pictured below) to support our global market growth and expand our manufacturing capabilities. This new build will incorporate a clean assembly area, specials workshop and CAD/CAM manufacturing facility, on the site of our former offices and workshops at Sheffield Park, East Sussex. The new facility is expected to be operational early in 2014.
