Coltraco manufacture Ultrasonics That Work

A Company of Exporters: Case Study

We have created the capability to “better, faster, cheaper” than any of our competitors at home and overseas. Our reputational integrity is stronger today than ever because our customers and markets know that integrity is our founding value from concept design through to life time after sales customer care.

Working in India is a wonder and a challenge concurrently. One particular export example we are proud of, is in the maritime and defence sector: supplying our watertight integrity monitoring systems to India’s naval fleet. The Indian Navy is developing a 300-ship fleet:

  • This leveraged Coltraco’s experience working with the Royal Navy and US Navy on surface and subsurface vessels. 
  • Navies need to maintain watertight compartment integrity. If a flood occurs, you need to make sure the water does not spread through compartments. 
  • Coltraco developed the means to do this using ultrasonic technology to test watertight integrity called Portascanner® WATERTIGHT 
  • The Indian Navy carried out extensive trials on the equipment alongside competitor technologies. After three years, the Indian Navy selected it as the best in class and installed the equipment across their Western and Eastern Fleets.
  • Mindful of the long-term Engineering & Maintenance support contract as much as the acquisition itself, the commitment to after sales in-country support was critical to the success of the project and the company established an Indian ODA Service Station to provide this in-country.
  • Coltraco has also developed the world’s first Calculator app designed to log data and compute leak site apertures from the Portascanner® readings, which has been shortlisted for the Seatrade Asia Maritime Safety awards 2018.


CEO Message

Integrity and Science Key to Our Culture of Performance

Dear Coltraco Customers, Strategic Partners and Distributors,

Integrity is our defining value. Performance is its consequence. We understand that our customers have choices, and how we perform determines whether customers choose us. Coltraco’s Code of Ethics does not merely require compliance with laws. It embodies a Commitment to positive behaviours that build trust, promote respect, operate with distinction, with courtesy and global levels of performance, demonstrating our integrity and delivering customer performance.

We honour our commitments, communicate transparently, and act with honour. Ethics are the foundation of our performance culture and our science-based approach. We lead in specific technologies delivering the watertight integrity monitoring of marine structures and the monitoring of fixed liquefied gaseous fire extinguishing systems and the room integrity of protected space to ensure agent hold-times post-installation. We show this by our understanding of the science in them and the mathematics that explain them.

I would like to thank you for your business and for the relationships with our Customers, Strategic Partners, Distributors and ODAs who we value so highly.

My kindest regards,

Carl Stephen Patrick Hunter BA(Dunelm) Hon DSc FRINA FIMarEST MRAeS
