On 8 November 1910 the erstwhile meter department of GEC was incorporated as Salford Electrical Instruments Ltd at Peel Works, Silk Street, Salford, Lancs, UK.

Founded: 1910
Production: 1910 -

During WWII the company contributed to radar development and manufactured proximity fuses. The company produced a wide range of electronic components, transistors, thermostatic devices and measuring instruments. Following a floor collapse at the Silk Street works, production moved to Barton Labs in Eccles, but this facility closed in the early 1980s.

It is now a dormant company with registered office at Warwick House, PO Box 87, Farnborough Aerospace Centre, Hampshire GU14 6YU, UK.

This manufacturer was suggested by Bruce Taylor.
