CeeD member stories – Albacom Ltd

Albacom’s team of specialist engineers have a combined two centuries worth of experience and have been at the forefront of many engineering adaptations and continue to innovate and deliver outstanding products and customer service across four key divisions: Electronics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Sustainable Engineering and Assembly Engineering.

Based in Dundee, the company was established in 1953 as a division of Ferranti. After a management buyout in 1990, Albacom was formed as the business it is known as today. In 2015, the company diversified to include their Lifting & Electric Motor Winding Division, with the creation of their CNC Machining Division through acquisition in 2017 and, in 2020, Albacom received a six figure investment as part of the Scottish Government’s Scottish Growth Scheme to develop business in new markets and support international expansion.

Case Study Video

In this video CeeD speaks to Jim Davidson, Albacom’s Chief Executive, to learn more about their Continuous Improvement journey and how their business has grown through investment and diversification.

This video was created with support from Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise. The ambition of the Scottish Government is for Scotland to become the home of manufacturing innovation, to be seen as an inventor and producer, not just a consumer of goods – innovative, thriving and international looking.

The aim of this video is to share success stories and inspire companies to be part of a strong manufacturing sector to help drive Scotland’s economic recovery and future prosperity.
