For more than 100 years Barton International has designed or co-designed and manufactured many common place products for the British and European public utilities sector in the heart of The Black Country.
Our focus is the management and delivery of a reliable, competitive, quality assured, resilient and sustainable supply chain. Together with testing, assembly, warehousing, and logistics, still in the heart of The Black Country.
We have just completed our first project with Barton. Upon enquiry, quote/information were received very promptly. We had to make a few changes during initial testing phase due to slight application alteration and the service provided to support was nothing short of exceptional. We look forward to working with Barton International on future projects.

Features & Benefits
Our engineering team based in the UK are constantly looking for new materials and processes to meet the demand for lower costs as well as improved performance. More recently, with the introduction of full fibre broadband, products have been developed to support cables underground. The MOBRA units can be adapted to suit most chambers and are designed to hold cables securely in existing ducts. These compliment a range of brackets already in use in chambers.
We are proud of our partnership with the UK Public Utilities sector from our very beginning and remain a Senior Partner with BT Openreach. We currently supply over 4 million components to BT every year, as well as supporting their approved installer network. Products are manufactured either in-house or on Barton International owned tooling in factories based in low-cost countries. Barton International monitor and approve these sources, providing BT with the benefits of low-cost manufacturing but with local support.
Today, as for the last 25 years, Barton International continues to use this knowledge and experience of design and manufacturing to provide an established supply chain of the same from preferred suppliers with design, tooling, and production capabilities in modern manufacturing plants around the world.
The public utilities sector remain core, together with telecommunications and broadband, EV Charging Infrastructure, Transport Infrastructure and Civil Engineering.
