Albright International is a privately owned company founded in 1946 which has been successfully operated by three family generations. Commencing with the manufacture of the Albright contactor range in the 1950s, the strong tradition of designing and manufacturing our own products continues to this day. Albright is proud to be one of only a few contactor companies that wholly designs and manufactures its own product ranges.
Albright International operates from our Head Office at Whitchurch in the South of England, which incorporates a wholly owned manufacturing facility and Sales Office.
Albright China was established in January 2008 operating as a manufacturing facility set up to serve our Chinese and Asian region customers. A Sales office followed in May 2009 to manage sales within China and assist with sales in the wider Asian region. Albright China is located in Song-Jiang, South East of Shanghai.
Albright China is a fully self sufficient factory designed to replicate operations and standards in the UK to continue to provide the high standards of quality and performance of our products to our customers.
Albright Deutschland was established in March 2009 to maintain and further enhance our market position in Germany. Albright Deutschland exclusively manages sales for Germany, Austria and parts of Switzerland from its purpose built facility located in the thriving quarter of “ÜberseeStadt“ in the city of Bremen.
In addition to the Sales office and warehouse, Albright Deutschland is also home to the Albright Design Centre which incorporates a test laboratory and manufacturing plant for the new Albright business segment of Li-Ion batteries. The Design Centre is a cooperation facility with Albright International which enables the development of new contactors both for German and Global markets, and for new innovative products including Battery Management Systems.
