Electronic Test & Calibration Limited was incorporated in 1992, to provide a first class electronic calibration service and EMC testing facility for the UK. Operating from an industrial unit at Babbacombe Farm, Abbotsham, as part of its expansion plans and to-date business success, ETC moved to a bespoke and purpose built calibration laboratory and EMC testing laboratory on Caddsdown Industrial Park, Bideford, North Devon in 1999.
ETC provides electronic calibration services World-Wide; currently exporting to over 30 countries covering mainland Europe, the Middle-East, the Far East and the Americas.
In 1996 the ETC founding Directors were partners of a newly formed cooperative-run business called EMC Network (SW) Limited. This business operated from leased premises in Caddsdown Industrial Park and provided EMC testing to regional businesses with its own SAC and OATS facility.
In 2005, Electronic Test & Calibration Limited acquired 100% of EMC Network (SW) Limited and the business was fully integrated into ETC the same year. In 2011 as part of its expansion plans, ETC acquired an operating base in Slough to service growing business in the South-East of England.
In 2014 ETC continued to grow profitably and acquired an operating base in Warrington to service customers and attract new business in the North of England to the Scottish Borders. From 2014 Electronic Test & Calibration provides a 5 working-day turnaround national Calibration Service.
In February 2018, Electronic Test & Calibration Limited was acquired by the Consumer Products Testing division of Eurofins Scientific became part of Eurofins E&E Product Testing (UK).
On the 1st of July 2023, Eurofins E&E ETC Ltd (“ETC”) was acquired by Eurofins Electrical and Electronics UK Ltd, and we will formally become part of the Eurofins E&E UK legal entity.
Although Eurofins E&E ETC Ltd will continue to exist at Companies House for a short period, we will no longer operate under this name. We will continue to be known as the Eurofins E&E ETC Laboratory, maintaining the link with the ETC name that our customers are familiar with.
As important as these changes are, we’d like to let you know that the team in the Bideford lab that you work with will be the same. The same people will answer the phone, respond to emails and carry out the calibration and EMC testing work.
The Eurofins E&E name will be familiar to many of our customers as we’ve operated under this brand for several years. Our branding, marketing materials, quotes, reports and invoices have carried the Eurofins E&E logo, so the change you will see will be minimal.
The high level of service that you have come to expect from ETC over the years will continue to be delivered, and by becoming part of the larger Eurofins E&E UK company, we can provide a broader range of services and capabilities to existing and new customers alike.
