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, laboratoryware, precision balances, environmental measurement devices, personal protective equipment and work wear.

Tubing products form the biggest part of our business and our manufacturing capability extends through a large variety of plastics and rubbers. Our stock range of tubing caters for the majority of our customers' requirements but where something a little different is needed we can make bespoke products in a wide range of polymers, specifications, colours and quantities. Contact us if you can't find quite what you need.

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!

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.
