Company history

Fidgeon Limited was founded by Peter and Pauline Fidgeon in 1975, primarily as a repair and service company dealing with ultrasonic equipment.

In the 40 years since this we have developed distribution links with some of the world’s principle manufacturers and become one of the largest and most recognisable NDT sales companies in the UK.

We have a long and successful association with Fuji Film Limited as their UK distributor. Our history in the maintenance of their automatic film processors, has been a major contribution to Fuji’s highly respected position in the Industrial Radiographic Industry. We are now recognised as the leading industrial service company of Colenta X-Ray Film Processors which are now used in association with Fuji Film and used by Carestream in association with Kodak Film.

In late 2015 we were approached by Eddy Current manufacturer Rohmann GmbH to be their distributor in the UK. This has been a rewarding endeavour for both companies.

Earlier in 2019 Fidgeon Limited became the UK and Ireland agent for Stresstech Oy and their products.
