Nickel-Electro is a family firm which was incorporated as a limited company in 1941, but its roots can be traced back to 1935 when the business first started. Now in its 3rd generation of family members, the company prides itself on being a soundly established, independent British manufacturer.
Originally based in Birmingham, Nickel-Electro re-located to the seaside in 1962 along with several other Midlands based companies. Continuous investment in the latest manufacturing and information technology means that the company can remain competitive and innovative with new products and designs.
Over the years Nickel-Electro has developed into a leading manufacturer of laboratory consumables and equipment. Its extensive knowledge and expertise in manufacturing highly accurate temperature control equipment for the science market has enabled the company to introduce the Clifton Food Range®, which offers chefs sous vide equipment with unparalleled specific temperature accuracy to produce consistently perfect results.
Melvin Dickson comments; “We are extremely proud to be in our 70th year of business and even more proud to have Nickel-Electro as our family firm. We have a highly motivated management team with a strong, loyal and multi-skilled workforce which contributes to the success of the business.”
Along with celebrating this proud and special year, Clifton Food Range® has launched a brand new website which allows the user to explore the company’s history through an interactive timeline, along with accessing product information quickly and effectively and gain information on sous vide cooking and techniques. Customers can also book visits to the Clifton Food Range® premises to trial the water baths in the demo kitchen, as well as tour the factory to see how the baths are manufactured.
