A Brief History...........

We have been supplying solders and tools to the electronics industry since 1993. Well time does fly and many things have changed over those years both with the electronics industry and for Somerset Solders. Back in the early 1990's the Company began trading as MR Technical Services supplying UK businesses with a range of tin lead solder wires, solder bars and fluxes. With the emergence of Surface Mount Technology processes within printed circuit board assembly MR Technical Services became a key supplier of quality solder paste. 

MR Technical Services expanded over the years its product portfolio and by 2011, when the trading name had changed to Somerset Solders Ltd, had become a major distributor of electronic assembly consumables and tools. Somerset Solders now offers an extensive range of products from leading World manufacturers. Qualitek - solders and fluxes, Transition Automation - Metal squeegees, Piergiacomi - hand tools, American Beauty - industrial soldering irons, Abeba - ESD shoes, BOFA - fume extraction, are just some of the Companies that are proudly represented.

Somerset Solders with our ESD brand Somerset ESD supplies the best ESD Clothing range in the UK. ESD lab coats and ESD lab jackets in 14 different colours, ESD fleeces and sweatshirts, ESD polo shirts and T-shirts, and not forgetting ESD trousers are available.
