Spencer Carter has earned an international reputation for exceptional quality and service, leading the UK in fishing vessel winch technology for over 50 years.
Formed in 1964 by Stephen Carter and Michael Spencer in Surrey, the business focused on sub-contract precision engineering and machining of hydraulic valve components, specialising in small batch quantities.
Through experience with their own vessels, they developed a unique insight for what their customers want, which feeds the development of their product range on a daily basis.
1968 brought a new direction for the business as Stephen and Michael relocated to Falmouth in Cornwall. In their new location and armed with years of experience in industrial hydraulics, it was a natural progression to specialise in equipment for the fishing industry, which still dominates their product range to this day.
Over the next 20 years, they established themselves as the experts in marine technology solutions, building an impressive portfolio in a wide variety of specialisms including oil pollution control, slipways, survey vessels, salvage vessels, harbour mooring vessels, cargo handling and quayside unloading winches.
