A world leader in all aspects of surface preparation
The SPE company was founded in 1983 and to this day remains a family owned business.
Our vision was to develop an organization that would be a world leader in all aspects of surface preparation. We were the first company to use the terminology Surface Preparation Equipment, this term becoming the foundation of the group.
SPE began with the design and manufacture of the original 20ES Autoblast machine. This equipment was initially used to provide an on site service for the construction, industrial flooring and petrochemical industry. The technique of totally enclosed shot blasting used with this system quickly became the recognized method for preparing concrete and steel surfaces. Over the years the SPE range of equipment has developed into the largest available from a single source worldwide.
The SPE Group operates from a purpose built facility covering 5 acres in rural Lincolnshire in the centre of the UK, and today enjoys the position as one of the market leaders in the Surface Preparation Industry.
The SPE brand is recognized worldwide and the company has gained an enviable reputation for providing the complete surface preparation solution.
