Gadgets Made In Britain

Formula one teams know where it’s at… For almost a century the UK manufacturing industry significantly contributed to the economy with the creation of gadgets and spy gadgets. From the 1870’s the industry boomed, which was due to innovations in technology, competition and the quality of management. It wasn’t until the 1960’s that we saw a decline in the UK manufacturing and subsequent poor contributions to the economy. This decline was blamed on deep-rooted structural problems and the failure to invest in new technology.

However, over the last 50 years pockets of competitive manufacturing have emerged across the UK. This can be seen in a diverse range of industries that create a variety of different products for both the UK and international markets. We are now the sixth largest manufacturing nation in the world, which has improved by over 280% since the 1980s because of this. Spy Equipment UK, ourselves, are one of the biggest distributors of spy gadgets that have been manufactured here in the UK. These spy gadgets can be found right across our site,  in the listening devices and intelligent counter surveillance ranges, for example.
