Smooth growth

From the humble beginnings of a small machine shop set up by one man in his spare evenings, Altec Engineering has steadily grown alongside its customer base to become a one-stop-shop for precision engineering. Founded in 1978 by Ron Waite MBE, a technician at Durham University, Altec Engineering started off with just a lathe, pedestal drill and milling machine in a small abattoir in Coxhoe, just south of Durham. Fast forward nearly 40 years, and after an MBO and significant capital injection, as well as a £6m investment from the Business Growth Fund, Altec Engineering now turns over £15.5m and employs nearly 200 people, making it a true manufacturing force to be reckoned with.
