Operating from its headquarters in Glasgow, Alba Ultrasound can offer an unparalleled level of service, ranging from design and prototype development, through to elevated levels of production. An in-depth understanding of the interaction between materials and processes, along with subsequent environmental impacts, has allowed Alba to manufacture extremely complex ultrasonic sensor arrays which are capable of reliable, long-term operation under the most demanding and harsh conditions.

The Company currently occupies a position right at the forefront of sonar sensor technology and is actively developing new market areas on non-destructive testing and in – line process control.
