  • History
    7th November 1973 - Erwin SICK Optic Electronic Ltd was registered and began trading from small Victorian premises in Radlett, Herts - with 2 members of staff.
    By 1979 the company had 15 employees and it was time to move to bigger premises in Lyon Way, St Albans.
    During 1984 it was decided that bigger premises were again needed.  This time a plot of land was bought in St Albans and the current two storey building was designed and built, and was formally opened in December 1985 by Peter Lilley, the MP for St Albans at the time.
    In 2005, the company name was changed to SICK (UK) Limited to tie in better with the SICK Group worldwide branding.
    By 2013 SICK (UK) Ltd. celebrated its 40th anniversary with 68 employees.
    By 2019 the company had expanded the number of employees to over 80, with more product and applications specialists, sales engineers, service engineers and support staff.


    We are looking forward to many more years of continuing to develop our relationship with you, our customers.
