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 to customers 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 Italy. Today, customers include universities, major synchrotrons 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 has opened a purpose-built facility in the UK (pictured right) to support our global market growth and expand our manufacturing capabilities. This new build incorporates a clean assembly area, specials workshop and CAD/CAM manufacturing, on the site of our former offices and workshops at Sheffield Park, East Sussex.
In December 2016, Allectra GmbH opened a second German manufacturing facility in Villingen-Scwhenningen, in Southern Germany.
