Company Profile

Tudor House

Spectronic CamSpec Head Office in Garforth, Leeds, West Yorkshire, UK.

Spectronic CamSpec provides leading analytical laboratory equipment that is crucial for research, development and quality control in an array of industries.

Based in Leeds, West Yorkshire since 1971, the company has served the scientific community across the UK for over 50 years.

The instrument range includes: CamSpec spectrophotometers; FTIR spectrometers; flame photometers; mercury analysers; texture analysers and tenderometers; and a wide selection of electrochemistry equipment.

Consumables are available including lamps, electrodes, probes, cuvettes and more.

Spectronic CamSpec's in-house technical department is renowned for their extensive working knowledge of analytical systems, their flexibility and friendliness.

Annual preventative maintenance and breakdown service is offered on every instrument in the range and many other major manufacturers' instruments.


Spectronic Services was established in 1971 by Eric and Jean Brereton as an instrument servicing company.  The business was initially conducted from their home in Garforth, a town in Leeds, Yorkshire.

The firm grew fast as the scientific industry recognised the value and quality of our services; by the 1990s we were sought out by many major instrument manufacturers to service and sell equipment, including CamSpec of Cambridge. Spectronic Services changed its name to Spectronic Analytical Instruments, to reflect the booming success in sales.

In 2009, Spectronic Analytical Instruments purchased the CamSpec company and began marketing the popular spectrophotometer range as our own, merging the companies in 2010 and becoming Spectronic CamSpec Ltd.

In 2015, Spectronic CamSpec reviewed their distribution network and planned to expand the company globally.

The ACHEMA trade show exhibition in 2018 played a large part in the expansion, allowing Spectronic CamSpec to connect with new distributors and industry contacts.

Spectronic CamSpec plans to grow further in the coming years, continually improving the organisation and solidifying relationships with our customers, partners and distributors.
