HORIBA's UK Factories are in Northampton and Glasgow

Made in the UK

HORIBA in the UK is part of the global HORIBA family, with its roots firmly in Japan, but we also have a strong manufacturing prescence right here in the United Kingdom.

We are able to deliver a wide range of value added manufacturing services, catering not only for the UK domestic market, but also for our customers worldwide.

With over 25 years of design, manufacturing and assembly experience, we are proud to be able to offer a range of British-based products and solutions to meet your exact needs. This expertise enables us to provide a high level of service throughout your project, from the design phases right through to its realisation and beyond.

Our manufacturing and assembly facilities in the UK are based at two factories. Our factory in Northampton, England focuses on systems and components for our Automotive Test Systems segment, and our factory in Glasgow, Scotland focuses on our Scientific segment, specifically Fluorescence Lifetime TCSPC systems and components.


Northampton | England

EMC Test Chamber

From our Northampton factory we support the assembly and test of complete systems for the automotive test industry as well as system components and PC assembly for use in HORIBA products and systems globally.

Our extensive operation includes an EMC test chamber that is used both internally for our own development as well as being available for external hire for self-certification purposes.


Glasgow | Scotland

Manufacturing in the UK - Glasgow

Our Glasgow factory is a leading manufacturer of advanced photon counting instrumentation used in research laboratories worldwide. Originally a Strathclyde University spin-off company, IBH is now part of the HORIBA Group.

The principle role of our Glasgow site is to design and manufacture fluorescence lifetime spectrometers and related components for photon counting applications. Product development is a continual process, taking into account the latest advances in technology to introduce high-end, but easy to use products to the market place.

A team of experts at our Glasgow site handle everything from conception and design (electrical, mechanical & software) through the development process to finished product manufacture.

The production of time-resolved fluorescence systems and components, along with both TCSPC applications and sales support, is all carried out from our Glasgow site.
