about astl logo


Advanced Screen Technology Ltd (ASTL) was established in 2002 in Croydon, Surrey.
The ex-Philips team, with many years of collective expertise in engineering, manufacturing, chemistry, and quality management, now provides a range of sectors including medical, electronics, aerospace and automotive, with quality screens and manufacturing support.

During the last 16 years ASTL has developed a wide customer base, and has innovated with customers at R & D level through to mass production. It continues to evolve new techniques and processes of manufacture to enable it to support an ever increasing demand for using screen printing as a manufacturing medium.

ASTL is also committed to supporting and supplying screens into many other industries, and over the last few years has supplied ‘stretched only’ screens, and ‘made complete’ screens. There is now a new demand for ‘high build’ screens for Braille and Tactile products.
