Heat Trace has been manufacturing electrical heating cable in the U.K. for over 40 years.  All processes are carried out in the U.K. except for the manufacture of the conductors. 

The main manufacturing facility and headquarters of the company are at Helsby in the North West of England.  This factory houses all the processing equipment for the manufacture of semi-conductive self-regulating heating cables, core compounding, heating matrix extrusion and insulation.  The main item of capital equipment is the Electron Beam Unit - one of only two similar units in the U.K. and one of only a few in Europe.

A second manufacturing facility is located in Bredbury, Stockport some 56km from Helsby. The Bredbury site has been owned by Heat Trace for 20 years and constant power heating cables are made there.
