Our History - Industrial Ancillaries

HISTORY

The Industrial Ancillaries Journey

Over the past 50 years we have become established as an industry-leading distributor of superior quality hydraulic, pneumatic, instrumentation and process products,

We supply into a huge range of industries, including engineering, oil and gas, chemical, mining, aerospace, construction, plumbing and HVAC, medical, pulp and paper, automotive, transport, power generation, food and beverage, marine and shipbuilding, instrumentation, process, semiconductor, analytical and agricultural...to name but a few!

Initially supplying local engineering companies, we then moved onto national supply and, in recent years, international business. At launch, the company operated out of our founder's car, moving quickly on to a 'two up - two down' terraced house - with the storage downstairs and office upstairs!

As we have grown over the years we have moved premises whenever we have outgrown the existing ones, leading up to our move to a custom-built 40,000 sq. ft. office and warehouse facility in 2008, where we tripled the size of our workforce and took on many exciting new suppliers, products and customers.

2020 and Beyond...

In 2016 we further extended our Headquarters, which is now home to our National Distribution Centre, Trade Counter, Workshop, Training Academy. We also hire out our suite of Conference Rooms, and offer Logistics services to our partners.

We've come a long way since Ray founded the company, evolving into one of the UK's leading industrial distributors. We have generated massive growth whilst ensuring we retained our unique family atmosphere and the service levels our customers are so impressed by. We have some ambitious plans for the next 5 years and beyond, and we welcome you to join us - together we can empower industry to engineer a better world.
