Tell me a bit about Altec…

Altec Products Limited is a supplier of technical products for Science, Industry, Trade & DIY.

The company was originally set up in 1971 to supply analysis equipment and tubing products to laboratories and industrial users throughout the UK. We have since extended our product ranges to include peristaltic pumps, calculators, precision balances, environmental measurement devices, personal protective equipment and work wear.

We also carry a good stock of popular engineering plastics.

You started before the Internet!

We've been a mail order company for more than 35 years - long before the internet was adopted as a platform for selling. We have always aimed for high standards in the quality and selection of the products we supply, and have not lost sight of the fact that prompt delivery to our customers is still paramount, regardless of the speed of the internet!

So, what makes you different?

Ordering is kept simple because we don’t ask you to register or set up an account with forgettable passwords!

We hope you’ll find our website to be clean and clutter-free. If you can’t find what you’re looking for by browsing, simply enter a keyword into the search box at the top of the screen to get a list of links to guide you to the right product!

If you need to contact the Sales Office during business hours, by ‘phone, fax or email, we’ll endeavour to reply by return. We won’t ignore your correspondence or hide behind recorded messages!

Why use this website?

We have access to over 10,000 product lines. Same-day despatch from stock is possible for around 5,000 of these items!

We offer price discounts on most products that are ordered on the website. You can still order by telephone, fax, email or by post if you prefer, but you will not be eligible for these discounts and our ‘Normal’ prices will apply.

There is no minimum order value, and we offer a choice of low-cost shipping options, with orders over £30 to UK destinations going free! (Some remote areas of the UK are excluded. You’ll be advised as you place your order.)

Are you the cheapest?

You will find our products to be keenly priced and competitive, although we don’t believe that low prices alone are the strength of a company like ours! We offer customer support - both before and after an order is placed – and have more than three decades of experience in achieving a prompt delivery to your home or business address.

OK, so what do your customers say?
