Based in High Wycombe, UK, Musitech Ltd was an engineering firm providing supply, design and manufacture of equipment for the record manufacturing and cassette duplication industries. Musitech Ltd, Musitech Plating Ltd and Diamech Ltd were established by Roy Matthews (former EMI pressing plant General Manager and equipment designer) and his son John Matthews in 1981.

Musitech Plating Ltd. provided a plating service to record pressing plants. Their stampers can be identified by the "MT" in the matrix (e.g. MT.1, MT.-5 or M.T.1). Staff included John White who worked at Pye Records and later for Damont Audio.

Diamech Ltd offered precision engineering services while Musitech Ltd. provided equipment sales and consultation services such as factory design and was also the UK representative for Lened record presses. The company manufactured its own line of galvanic equipment for records and CDs. Only one Musitech galvanic system remains in 2020 and this is located in Moscow, Russia.

Musitech Ltd. and Mustiech Plating Ltd went into receivership on 15 February 1989 but CD business activities were continued until 1998 as Musitech C.D. Ltd. Musitech was finally dissolved in 1992 and Musitech CD was finally dissolved in 2003.

Roy Matthews was brought out of retirement to run Portal Space until 2004. Portalspace was re-named "The Vinyl Factory"
