About Heatsense


Established in 1984 by two engineers from Fothergill & Harvey in Lancashire, Heatsense has steadily built its reputation and is today regarded by many as the UK’s leading specialist manufacturer and supplier of thermocouple cables and extension wires. Many original customers continue to do business with Heatsense and a number of its original employees still work for the company.

Current management acquired the business in 2014, relocated it to Greater Manchester and made significant investment in plant and equipment, broadening the company’s manufacturing capabilities. Throughout 2018, the company saw significant growth; acquiring new equipment and significantly expanding its workforce.

Heatsense has achieved both ISO9001:2015 and ISO14001:2015 Accreditations since 2014 and is currently working closely with the NAMRC (Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre) on the F4N (Fit for Nuclear) Approval Scheme.

The company is also working towards AS9100:2016 and aims to be accredited in 2019.
