Samtech Ltd is a Glasgow-based company that specialises in the development and production of high voltage and pulsed power products, along with the provision of testing services and training courses. The company was formed in 1999 and is closely linked with the High Voltage and Pulsed Power research group in the Institute for Energy and Environment at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. The company was established to develop the group’s research for commercial markets, and also to allow the group to respond to the growing interest in its research activities from industry.
Samtech personnel possess many combined years of experience in pulsed power research and its related fields. Company staff include Dr Mark Wilson and Prof Scott J MacGregor, who founded the Pulsed Power research group in 1986; over the last thirty years, the group has steadily grown through both fundamental and applied research programmes, and has attracted significant research funding from both government and industry. This established and successful research base provides Samtech with a wealth of experience, knowledge and capability from which it can support the company products and services. The company undertakes high voltage testing to IEC standards, and is fully ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 compliant.
