Record Electrical


Record Electrical began trading in 1911 with brand names ‘Record’ and ‘Circsale’ becoming well-known throughout the world for quality, analogue, moving coil meters that are designed to meet traditional and bespoke applications.

In September 2020 Record Electrical Associates Ltd acquired the marketing and manufacturing business from Total Gauges Ltd. Formerly BENCHMARK INSTRUMETS LTD.

The complete Analogue Indicator product range will complement the existing Record Electrical instruments.

A brief history:

In 1919 Percy Healey formed ‘The Healey Meter Company’ at Hockley, Birmingham relocating to Ludlow, Shropshire in 1947.

British Physical Laboratories (BPL) was formed at Hendon, North London in 1939 which then relocated to Bedfordshire in 1981.

The companies were merged in 1985 to form BPL-Healey which then became BENCHMARK INSTRUMENTS LTD.
