Alfred H Knight Group

The Alfred H Knight Group (AHK) was established in Swansea in 1881 to provide a totally independent weighing sampling and analytical service to the mineral and metals trade. Towards the end of the nineteenth century the company became increasingly involved in the coal industry and in particular servicing the analytical needs of the South Wales coalfield.

In subsequent years the company has expanded to over 35 countries worldwide and still actively seeks new ventures outside of the UK.

Spanning four generations Alfred H Knight Group still remains a privately owned United Kingdom company with over 3500 staff worldwide and 500 in the UK.

We are proud of the reputation we hold in the inspection and analytical business and continually strive to maintain the integrity of service that our customers have come to expect.

The Alfred H Knight Group is a fully integrated business managed centrally by its UK head office.
