Colt was founded by Jack O’Hea in 1931 in London and is run from a UK base, with an additional sales office in Glasgow.
We support our customers throughout the UK with our network of representatives covering the country’s territory and operate a manufacturing plant serving the UK and other markets from our manufacturing plant, also based in the UK.
We are part of the Colt Group, which is present around the world through locally staffed companies and strategic partners backed by a global organisation. This means that our local teams are able to support customers in the UK with the best expertise and first-hand knowledge developed in projects around the world, using the resources of a global company.
