About Us


Who are we...

Instrumentel Limited was incorporated in 2001 as a venture capital backed spin-out from the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering
at the University of Leeds and has since developed to become a world-leader in the design and manufacture of telemetry systems
for extreme and inaccessible environments.

Instrumentel’s condition-based maintenance systems are being increasingly adopted by asset owners, operators and maintainers in the Rail, Automotive, Industrial and Defence sectors.

We are part of Unipart Group

We are one of Britain’s largest employee-owned companies, with the majority of shares being held by employees. But when the group formed nearly three decades ago, it was ideas rather than size that shaped our fortunes.

Instrumentel became part of an even bigger family when acquired by Unipart Rail in early 2017. The Unipart Group employs thousands of employees worldwide and has an annual turnover of approximately £750million. It is a leading UK manufacturer, full service logistics provider and consultant in operational excellence.

At the heart of our Group is The Unipart Way – our standard way of working that has been developed over more than 20 years.  

It is our proven method of generating our high levels of employee engagement, which deliver a wide range of benefits for all our customers.

Unipart people consistently strive to deliver better than expected results through their high levels of engagement, underpinned by our operational excellence.

It’s what we call Performance through Engagement.
