30 Years Supplying Automation Solutions

SP Celebrates 30 Year Milestone

SP Technology recently marked a notable milestone, celebrating thirty years in business.

The company was established in 1984 and has grown from its early days into a forward thinking proactive company, designing, building and installing bespoke production and process automation systems for companies all over the UK and abroad.

SP Technology's premises located in Camperdown Industrial Park Dundee, is home to its design and manufacturing business, employing 34 staff. The in-house team includes design, manufacturing, control and software engineers along with project managers and sales and administration staff. A sales office was opened in 2009 in South Wales to assist with our UK coverage.

SP Technology has worked with a wide range of companies and industries, supplying over 750 bespoke automation solutions worldwide. Projects have ranged from individual stand-alone units to multi-million pound complete process systems; these have been for industries as diverse as shortbread manufacturing to high volume assembly and test systems for medical devices. This adaptability has been instrumental in the success of SP Technology, along with their commitment to keeping abreast of advances in technology.

Roy Henderson, Managing Directors, says "SP has to be one of the most lateral forward thinking automation companies out there. Each system we provide is unique, and requires a dedicated team to allow us to provide innovative solutions for our clients. 30 years in business is great milestone, and has only been made possible by continuously coming up with innovative solutions to meet our client's exact needs. We are always learning and encourage learning internally to ensure our staff is ready to meet the challenges that each project presents. Although we are a small company based in Dundee we are continually up against competition from the UK as well as large European and American machine builders, but our ability to fully understand and work closely with our clients helps us to win contracts against these "bigger players" and provide solutions worldwide"
