About Somerset Solders
Somerset Solders Ltd - More Than Just Solders
Somerset Solders has been supplying solders and tools to the electronics industry since 1993. The Company began trading as MR Technical Services in the early 1990’s, supplying UK businesses with a range of tin-lead solder wires, solder bars, and fluxes. With the emergence of Surface Mount Technology (SMT) and subsequent process changes within printed circuit board (PCB) assembly, MR Technical Services became a key supplier of quality solder pastes.
In 2006, Somerset Solders’ founder and director, Mark Day, acquired MR Technical Services, who with 30 years’ experience in the PCB manufacturing and assembly industry, expanded the product portfolio. By 2011, when the trading name had changed to Somerset Solders Ltd, the Company had become a major distributor of electronic assembly consumables and tools. With the acquisition of Benz Ltd in 2014, the product range expanded again with products specifically for SMT production.
Somerset Solders supplies leading manufacturing companies in the field of electronics, whether at the full production assembly phase or product development stage. We are committed to offering premium quality products at competitive prices combined with our experienced customer service team to support and build on our relationship with our customers. As an ISO 9001:2015 company, we work to a high standard of quality control to give you peace of mind that your decision to use us as your supplier is the right one.
In 2020, Somerset Solders launched its Somerset Workwear brand, supplying ESD workwear and safety footwear to the service, industry and healthcare sectors specialising in high-quality medical scrubs, shoes and general industrial clothing. In the same year, Caira Day joined the Company to support and grow the Somerset Workwear brand.
