The Story of Swinton
We have built our industry-leading capabilities over almost 40 years spent at the cutting edge of flow computing, building from the ground up. Many members of our team have played key roles in the development of legacy flow computers and their associated metering software over several decades – most notably the S600 flow computer, which is used extensively around the world.
Our knowledge and expertise can be traced back to the 1980s and 1990s when key members of our team were part of Spectra-Tek. Spectra-Tek was founded in the 1970s. The office was situated on Outgang Lane in Pickering. Spectra-Tek, also known as ‘Speckers’, ‘S-Tek’ or just ‘ST’ was renowned for quality, from the hand-assembled equipment and machine cases all produced at the Pickering facility, through to gold-embossed lettering on the document binders. Most importantly, Spektra Tek was responsible for the development of several widely adopted flow computers – including the 869M Quantum and the Sentinel 500.
But that was only the beginning…
