From Our Website

Established in London in 1987 in the premises of the Royal Institution of Great Britain, ACO Electronics was able to utilise the expertise of a group of scientists and optical experts at the Royal Institution to develop an initial product range for use by the UK Immigration Service. Since then we have firmly established ourselves as a global supplier of products to counter the growing problem of illegal immigration through the presentation of fraudulent documentation. Further research and development produced an increased range of products which led to company expansion, and in 1990 having outgrown the offices in London, we relocated to our present rural location on the borders of Hertfordshire, close to the university city of Cambridge.

Although we provide comprehensive instruction and operator manuals with all of our products, there may be some customers who feel that hands on training on a particular instrument will be beneficial. To cater for these clients we can offer training at our offices here in Cambridgeshire for individuals or for small groups of students. If it is not feasible to send personnel to us, we can arrange to conduct on-site training at your preferred location, either in the UK or overseas. Courses will give the students an insight into the techniques of document examination using our equipment, but for more comprehensive courses in the forensic examination of documents and for document checking services we would like you to contact our training partners.
