Our Story

Our Story

Way back in 1971, two young people Jean and Eric Brereton started their business servicing UV-Vis, AA and IR spectrophotometers.  In the mid-1980s several major instrument manufacturers were asking Spectronic Services to sell and service their equipment.  One of these manufacturers was CamSpec Ltd of Cambridge.  For over 20 years we sold the CamSpec range of instruments.  In 2009 we purchased CamSpec Ltd and became Spectronic CamSpec Ltd.  We continue to manufacture and sell CamSpec instruments all over the world.  In the UK we also distribute other laboratory instruments, so we understand the needs of users and distributors and have a very broad and deep knowledge of spectrophotometry applications.

The Future

During 2020 we plan to reinvigorate the product range and broaden the applications in which our instruments are used.  We also plan to work closely with international partners to help them sell and service the instruments in their territories.  The company is now run by a second generation Mark Brereton and a third generation joined the business as a Service Engineer in 2014.  This demonstrates our long term commitment to the world of analytical instruments.
