About us

Support you can rely on

ALMOR supports the requirements of the vacuum and atmosphere furnace heat treatment industry and other process sectors where high temperatures or corrosive environments are encountered.

The group has been formed to deliver the benefits of an “all round capability” by bringing together a number of complementary furnace engineering and alloy fabrication companies with histories going back to 1917.

Our multi skilled team of experienced engineers enables ALMOR to meet most heat treaters needs from the design and supply of new equipment through responsive service and support to process plant re-engineering.

ALMOR’s unique capability is relied upon daily by many blue chip companies, for whose requirements ALMOR continues to develop new products and services.
