At Stewart-Buchanan Gauges, we are a company that likes to stay one step ahead.



Our commitment to innovation has led to an enviable reputation as a manufacturer of market-leading, technically advanced products. This reputation has enabled us to grow in highly competitive markets across Europe and around the world.

Founded in Glasgow in the 1870’s, we have thrived over our long history because we put our customers at the heart of everything we do. Over many years, we have remained true to our core belief of dealing with our customers and our workforce openly and fairly. It’s one of the reasons we became an employee-owned company. With all our employees focussed on the success of our business, we work together to deliver products of exceptional quality and to provide our customers with excellent levels of service.

We employ over 120 people at our 4,000 square metre production facility located near Glasgow, Scotland. The plant is home to state-of-the-art machinery, including the Manufacturing Resource Planning system (MRP II), 3D design and CNC machines, enabling us to use the very latest manufacturing techniques.
