TOP-TEC – a story of innovation
TOP TEC is a brand of Dalen Limited, a UK manufacturer operating from a base in Birmingham, England.
The Dalen story began in 1957 as Amington Limited providing engineering solutions for industrial businesses. In the1980’s we extended our operation to include the production of stands for world leading TV manufacturers under the name of Dalen. This practice continued until 1993 when we came up with an innovative solution to deal with the theft of computers from our offices by building our own IT security enclosures.
On the advice of our local crime prevention officer we began to sell them to our neighbours. From that seed has grown the TOP-TEC range of secure AV and ICT enclosures and mounts.
Dalen has continued to innovate and today we are a leading manufacturer of collaborative learning tables, digital signage, and AV integrated lecterns. We also maintain our heritage by continuing to produce industrial access platforms, waste, materials handling and storage equipment.
The company is owned and managed by MD Clive Beardmore, an engineer and designer who has worked with Dalen since 1983. In an age of globalised and fractured supply chains we at Dalen continue to design and manufacture in the UK enabling us to ensure the quality of our products throughout the whole process and maintain our reputation as a high quality and cost effective solution provider.
