In April, 1976 - six years after the founding of the business - SPM International opened its first subsidiary outside Sweden when SPM Instrument UK was formed.
During the past forty years, SPM Instrument UK has enjoyed extensive growth within British as well as global industry, including the automotive, facilities management, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, petrochemical, and steel industries, among many others.
In addition to the sales of condition monitoring and laser alignment instrumentation, SPM Instrument UK’s services include installation, technical support, troubleshooting and analysis, service and calibration, and training. All SPM UK sales and technical staff are ISO 18436 certified vibration analysts and, with the support of its parent company, offer a platform for training to ISO CATIII vibration analysis.
The marine and offshore industries are important sectors for SPM Instrument UK. The company is fully accredited to DNV-GL and is working towards also obtaining Lloyd’s and ABS certification for these industries.
