Almit Group Ltd

Dr. Allan and Mrs. Irene Mitchell formed Almit Metal Finishing Ltd on the Aycliffe Business Park, County Durham in December 1981.
The Company operates a shift system in order to give a rapid response to customer needs in the electro-plating of Zinc, Bright Nickel, Decorative and Hard Chrome, Tin Plating, Silver Plating, Manganese Phosphate, Chemical Black, Pickling & Passivation of Stainless Steel, De-rusting, Paint Stripping and other specialist chemical treatments.

The group also includes Specialist Coatings Limited, which is a Dupont Alesta AP, Beckers, Interpon D, Inver, Qualicoat and Syntha Pulvin Approved Applicator.  The Company concentrates on the Chromate Pre-treatment and Polyester Powder Coating of aluminium and steel sections for architectural use, Wet Spray Painting including P.T.F.E. Coating and Shot Blasting and is located on the All Saints Industrial Estate, Shildon.
Recognising the need for growth, in 2005 a 22,000 sq. ft purpose built factory along with a two storey 6000 sq. ft office block was commissioned adjacent to the current Specialist Coatings facility in Shildon to house a new pre-treatment and automatic powder line.  In November 2005 all Office and Paint Shop staff from the Group were transferred into the new offices and factory to centralise these functions.  A 3000 sq. ft extension was also added to the current Specialist Coatings factory which was built in 1999 to house a shot blasting facility to compliment our wet spray processes.  In March 2007 due to increasing demand for site spraying a Site Services division was set up. In December 2008 a Zinc Phosphate line was introduced into the Wet Spray shop as an additional pre-treatment for mild steel substrates.  A 10,000 sq. ft. extension was added to the Wet Spray shop in May 2010 with the installation of additional spray booths and ovens to facilitate growth into new markets. A 10,000 sq. ft. extension was also added to the Powder Coating shop to accommodate an online pre-treatment and powder coating line to facilitate production and servicing levels.

A further member of the group is Timla Limited t/a Industrial Anodising Services; this Company carries out Standard Aluminium Anodising in a range of colours including black, red, gold, green and blue.  In addition the Company also carries out Hard Anodising in a range of colours, with Dichromate Seal.  Full Bright Anodising up to 2 metres long is also undertaken.
