About Us


Detectamet is the brand name developed by Detectamet (Formerly E-Components & Chains Ltd) , a youthful and innovative company, with enthusiasm and foresight in abundance. Our key focus is the design and manufacture of metal detectable products, particularly in the Food Industries.


"We pride ourselves in offering what we believe is a service second to none to the global market, coupled with our commitment to quality and innovation in design. All of these factors ensure you benefit with greater enhanced productivity at minimal cost to yourselves."


The business was first established in 2003, predominantly as an Engineering component supplier to original equipment manufacturers and end users.

The first customers were Rockware Glass in Knottingley UK and Britvic Drinks in Leeds UK.  During the first few years, the company worked increasingly for major food and beverage manufacturers supplying products such as conveyor components, wearstrips and feedscrolls.


This type of work and our knowledge of specialist plastics used in engineering applications for the Food/Pharmaceutical and Beverage Industries led us into the area of HACCP and the ongoing problems faced by manufacturers to avoid product contamination. The concept of using metal detectable materials, particularly in an engineering capacity led us to develop the range of products now famously known as DETECTAMET.


More recently the company has begun to work closely with distributors who have shown a great interest in the brand of Detectamet products, Hygiene and Medical supplies and the PPE equipment which is manufactured by the sister company CK European Safety Equipment Limited.


The acquisition CK European Safety Equipment Limited was completed in May 2009 - C K is the highly acclaimed manufacturer of the Detectaglove and Sonar Metal Detectable Earplugs. We now supply throughout Europe, North America, Asia and Australia our full range of products.


Detectamet also designs bespoke/applications products from its increasing range of specialist materials.

Product launches are scheduled through out the coming year   Request notification of product launches.
