We have an extensive technical library and can often dig out long forgotten details of obsolete parts and even suggest an up to date alternative. It’s all part of the service we offer.

Our pneumatic engineering workshopWe are the only UK company that are authorised as a Bosch distributor to manufacture Aventics - Bosch Rexroth Pneumatic cylinders and can respond very quickly to a request for a cylinder either to an ISO VDMA 6431 15552 standard or non standard specification.
