We provide Calibration, Sales, Hire, Service, and Repair to a wide range of test, measurement and process control instrumentation.PULLMANS started in a small office with 2 rooms in Albert Hymas goods yard, at the time there were 3 employees. As the work increased then so did the number of staff to service our customer’s needs, PULLMANS has been passed down from father to son, and Nathan Smith is now the Managing Director. Through the years we have been in business, growth has been steadily increasing, but over the last 10 years the numbers of instruments we have been servicing for our customers has increased to around 25,000 per year.
