We have been a part of the Aalberts group for over 15 years, but we have now changed our name to Aalberts Surface Treatment Ltd., with effect from 1st January 2019.
Our plant near Nottingham is, in reality, much larger than it seems. It boasts 9,000 sqm of land with 6,000 sqm of modern production area. Kirkby´s portfolio and quick response time makes it a valuable ‘diamond partner’. Kirkby Surface Technology Ltd has belonged to the AHC Group since early 2016, though, like AHC Oberflächentechnik GmbH, has been a member of the Aalberts Industries NV group of companies since 2001. Since its founding in 1974, Kirkby has provided the precision engineering industry with state-of-the-art hard-anodising, chromic acid anodising, and sulphuric acid anodising. In the subsequent years, Kirkby focussed its attention on the aviation and aerospace industries, supported by superb technical know-how of the anodising and painting processes required in this field.
