Top Tec & Dalen Ltd Overview | About Us

The Dalen story began in 1957. As Amington Ltd, we provided engineering solutions for industrial businesses. However, in the 1980s we extended our operation. We wanted to include the production of stands for world leading TV manufacturers. But this was under the name of Dalen.

This practice continued until 1993. We then 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.

Furthermore, that seed grew to the TOP-TEC range. In addition, now Dalen is a leading supplier of secure workspace furnishing, AV and ICT security products. However, we also continue to produce industrial access platforms, waste, materials handling and storage equipment.

The company is owned and managed by MD Clive Beardmore. He is 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. Therefore, it enables us to ensure the quality of our products throughout the whole process. In addition, we maintain our reputation as a high quality and cost effective solution provider.
