This year marks a milestone for HITEK Electronic Materials Limited, 35 years of ‘Protecting Your Electronics’. Continuing to be privately owned, the company has gone through many changes in that time, from facility enhancements to a growth in product offering. The one constant is our dedication to customers, many of whom we have been supplying for many years. We are driven to be the best supplier of EMC, Microwave & Polymer solutions to key markets using our in-house expertise in protecting electronics, we are committed to remaining focused on what our customers need in the future.
It all started in April 1985, HITEK Electronic Materials Limited officially opened on Skippingdale Industrial Estate in Scunthorpe as distributors for Emerson & Cuming Specialty Polymers and Emerson and Cuming Microwave. Now under the Henkel brand, we continue to supply many of the original materials. HITEK moved to Unit 15 on Wentworth Road in 1991, increasing office and production space.
HITEK began working with Parker Chomerics in 1995 and supplying their product range, five years later Tecan became the next supplier to be introduced to our customers. In 2003 due to continued growth both in staff and production workload, HITEK bought Unit 16 on Wentworth Road, increasing production capacity and capabilities, introducing new machinery, and over the years, Cortec, Precision Dynamics, Shieldex and Eeonyx products were added to HITEK’s product portfolio, in recent years ARC Technologies and Orbel Corporation have come on board.
Over the past ten years, HITEK has continued to grow and develop as a manufacturer, distributor, and fabricator, investing in our staff, quality management systems and supply chain management. Last year, we purchased Unit 14 thus giving us space to further grow and expand our capabilities – watch this space!
