ABOUT USThe Sempre Group Ltd - Was Metrology Direct Ltd
Our Vision, Purpose & Passion – Creating Value
What we do: Provide trusted products, services and solutions to industry.
The Sempre Group began trading as ‘Metrology Direct’ with two staff in January 2000 from a small office in Frampton-upon-Severn, Gloucestershire. In September 2001 the company moved to a 1000 sq feet office and showroom in Stroud. Over the following five years the company’s business grew and in October 2006 the operation was moved to the Waterwells Business Park, Gloucester. In June 2007 Metrology Direct purchased Etamic UK, a wholly owned subsidiary of its primary supplier Hommelwerke GmbH, Germany. In the summer of 2009 the company started its gauge calibration business and was awarded UKAS accreditation for its in-house calibration laboratory in October 2010.
At the beginning of 2015 the company moved into the current building in Barnwood, Gloucester. We now have over 1200 sq metre to further develop and care for our customers.
Since starting trading Metrology Direct’s aim is to provide a comprehensive range of measurement and inspection systems, instruments and related services to manufacturing companies throughout the UK and Ireland. Metrology Direct brings together a broad spectrum of equipment manufacturers from Europe, Japan, the USA and beyond, enabling users, specifiers and buyers to source the majority of their measurement and inspection needs from one supplier. Whether the requirement is for a flexible rule or a fully automated CNC controlled Measuring System, Metrology Direct will have a solution to offer. In addition to standard equipment and systems, Metrology Direct is able to design and build bespoke measurement and inspection solutions for a wide range of applications. Related services including calibration, training and subcontract measurement are also provided.
On June 1st 2018 Metrology Direct Ltd changed it’s name to The Sempre Group. The decision was made to change the name to enable us to offer more solutions than just Metrology. We took on a lean manufacturing product range and expanded in to more contract services including measurement and design. The company now has 4 divisions with an aim to make working with us as a partner or customer easier and more focused.
