About Unison

Unison has been providing tube bending solutions for over 40 years working closely with our customers to design and build some of the most cutting-edge tube bending technology available in the global marketplace today. We operate internationally with offices in Virginia USA, Manchester, Kenilworth and Scarborough with clients on every continent.

We were the first to design and manufacture all-electric tube bending machinery back in 1994. Since then, we have continued to lead the market through product enhancements and by providing innovative solutions to challenging production problems.

Innovation and problem solving is at the heart of what we do and collaborating with our customers has provided the catalyst to innovation. Our Research and Development team relishes the challenge especially when other manufacturers say it can’t be done, and we are extremely proud of this tradition. Our desire to lead, not follow has rewarded us with a global reputation for solving the most challenging customer problems.

Over the last 4 years we have been investing heavily in Research and Development in process automation including robotics, lasers and software to provide robot cells capable of operating and maintaining the tube bending machinery.
