Cooper Research Technology

Who we are

Established in 1990, Cooper Technology is a British company and one of the world leaders in the design and manufacture of high performance testing equipment for asphalt, bitumen, concrete, cement, soil and aggregates used in civil engineering.

The Nottingham Asphalt Tester (NAT), designed in the 1980’s by our Chairman Keith Cooper whilst working at the University of Nottingham, was the first of its type. Since then our product range has increased steadily and now includes Gyratory Compactors and Roller Compactors to prepare and compact specimens in addition to Servo Hydraulic and Servo Pneumatic Universal Testers, Triaxial Testers, Fatigue Systems and Wheel Trackers to perform standards.
