We have had a very strong relationship with FineTek for many years, supplying a full range of level switches and sensors.

We have the ability to offer many different custom options based upon their standard float level switches in addition to many other level detection switches and sensors such as radar, capacitance and tuning fork types, flow switches and sensors, panel meters plus various other products for industry including air hammers, pneumatic vibrators and monitoring devices for conveyor systems.

About Us

Since opening for business in Uckfield, East Sussex in 1983, Applications Engineering Ltd has become synonymous with the supply of control and instrumentation products. Our impressive array of items offered include; pressure switches, differential pressure switches, pressure transducers, pressure gauges, level switches, level sight indicators, flow switches, flow sensors, float switches, solenoid valves, temperature switches, temperature sensors and vacuum switches. We are also pleased to offer ATEX pressure, flow, level and temperature switches, plastic injection moulded parts, and if you need to clean small bore hose and pipes then we are the UK home for the original and ingenious Jetcleaner.

Some of the more well known manufacturers that we either solely represent or from whom we regularly source and stock product are listed below:

Beck, Elettrotec, Eurocomp, Fine Automation, Finetek, Gems Sensors, Hamlin, Honeywell, Nippon Automation, Pyropress, PPE, Riko, Siccom, SIKA Systemtechnik GmbH, Suco (Robert Scheuffele), World Magnetics.

Of course quality of product and service is vitally important to us and we are proud to declare that our Management System has been approved to ISO 9001 status since March 2003 (currently certified to 9001:2008) and is approved and annually audited by ISOQAR. Without this, we wouldn’t have been able to supply into some of the worlds’ most prestigious manufacturers supplying the exacting needs of the military industry. For over ten years we have been supplying two of the UK’s foremost companies in this sector with a variety of components including; filters, switches, sensors, machined and plastic moulded parts. One of which has rated us as their No. 1 rated supplier in 8 out of 9 months of 2011, supplying goods directly onto their shop floor under a ‘Lineside’ agreement. We were delighted and honoured to be recognised by this company in an official awards ceremony when they received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2007.

Needless to say, in order to provide our customers with a high level of service that they would naturally expect, we need to be able to offer swift turnaround of their orders. We can do this more often than not on a next day delivery due to the significant stock holding here at our new location in Horsted Square, Uckfield, East Sussex. We are also open for customers to collect direct from us and we would welcome anyone to come and view our facilities and ISO 9001 approved processes.
