Albright International is a privately owned company, founded in 1946. Initially, the company manufactured specialist switchgear to customers' designs, beginning the manufacture of the Albright contactor range in 1955 which started the strong tradition of designing and manufacturing our own products.
Albright contactors have become the standard which others have tried to imitate, but it is with good reason that Albright has become the most popular and extensively used DC contactor throughout the world.
The design process has resulted in products which are compact and space efficient without compromise of performance or quality. Only high specification materials are used throughout, thermosetting contact housings, silver alloy contact tips, substantial copper conductors, Class H insulation for coils, self lubricating armature bearings, and similar high quality components, being just some of the features which have established Albright as the number one DC contactor supplier with premier manufacturers of electric vehicles, telecommunications, welding, railway and marine products.
In addition to contactors, a range of manually operated disconnecting switches are also available.
Albright International operates from our Head Office at Whitchurch in the South of England, in modern well-equipped offices and factories. Additionally, Albright has 2 wholly owned factories, in China and Lithuania, manufacturing to our highest quality standards. Sales offices in France, Germany and Japan complete are international coverage. With a network of global agents and distributors we can review applications, and supply our original design DC contactors throughout the world.
Utilising 3D Solidworks CAD software, Rapid Prototyping systems, and an in-house Laboratory, our design process leads to a quick turnaround of innovative and original new products for the Albright product range. Many are recognised to Underwriters Laboratories safety standards.
Albright International not only operates to ISO9001 quality system but has also obtained ISO14001 environmental management system accreditation since 2000.
All facilities are staffed by an enthusiastic team whose expertise and competence results in reliable deliveries of products manufactured to the highest standard. All our contactors are specified for the application, by dedicated engineers.
This, together with a network of agents and distributors around the world, has established Albright as a truly international supplier.
