History & Capability


In 1992 The company IAT Systems Ltd was incorporated to deliver Control and Automation Systems engineering services for performing arts theatres. We delivered our expertise to clients in Hong Kong and several cities in China. In 2 years we had built 4 theatres and had a very satisfied client and end users. We built on this success and applied ourselves in the automotive industry primarily in delivering control systems for automated paint zones including Behr paint machines, reciprocators and under-body wax systems. We successfully commissioned up plants in the UK including Nissan, Ford, Rover and Peugeot and  Saipa Kia Motors in Iran and Autouropa in Portugal. We also diversified into Breweries and Bakeries.

In 2001 we re-branded our company to Abalto Technologies Ltd continuing projects in Automotive and targeting the Water and Waste Water industries in the UK. We successfully delivered projects of a diverse nature ranging from trouble shooting and small modifications to systems for full plant automation and control. We worked with Purac to deliver 2 large 500MLD and 800MLD Water Treatment plants in China.

In 2003 additional equity partners were introduced and Abalto Ltd was formed with a resolution to provide our services in the Oil & Gas industry.
