About Detectamet

Detectamet is the world’s leading producer and distributor of detectable tools and equipment used by the food and pharmaceutical industries.

The company’s origins go back ten years and it now has an inventory of more than 130 products with ranges developed to help reduce the risk of product contamination.

The founder’s foresight and drive has led to a vigorous program of new product development and the company distributes its products to more than 40 countries. Detectamet attends a growing number of international exhibitions.

The company employs almost 50 people working in teams.  There are IT specialists who have developed the web sites to inform and sell products. There is a sales team which provides direct contact with UK and overseas customers, plus a manufacturing team who assemble, pack and despatch the products.

With a reputation for developing new products Detectamet is very happy to discuss the special needs of customers for products that fulfil a unique need, and should be detectable.

The ranges include stationery products personal protection equipment, measuring and mixing devices and several cleaning tools. With a very strong base in metal detectable plastics Detectamet has recently expanded into high grade stainless steel products that are used both in food processing a catering/food service businesses.
