The design of our unique chemical resistant floating ball valve is at the heart of our business. As a family business that started in 1954 in Hailsham, near Eastbourne, in East Sussex in England, we were innovating with the new injection moulding technology. It was in its infancy then. It became a passion. Since those early days we have designed very high specification floating ball valves, conduit connectors and garden products. We also make bespoke products for our clients.
The floating ball valve or ball float valve provides a solution to any water or fluid level problem. You could say we have shot ourselves in the foot because our floating ball valve is so robust that our customers don’t need to replace it very often. We often hear how they have lasted for over 20 years!
Our products are now sold worldwide - from Canada to China, the USA to Dubai and across Europe. The floating ball valves are mainly used in large loft water tanks, irrigation tanks (some of which are underground), as well as storage tanks for all kinds of fluids in agriculture and industrial plants. Our floating ball valves are sold via our agent, Chemline Plastics, in Canada. Please contact us if you would like to be a distributor.
Our floating ball valves are unique - their main strengths being their chemical resistance and adjustable positions. Read more about our valves.
Our engineering facility has highly specialised moulding equipment and machinery. We can mould from 1g to 400 grams (14.10 ounces). Many of the machines in our workshops have been designed and built to ensure that none of the benefits gained by special tooling are lost during production.
Injection mouldings can normally be put into service straight from the machine after removal of the sprue. However, if required, services such as machining, welding, plating and finishing can readily be incorporated as part of the contract.
In addition, when the finished moulding forms part of a more complex product, we have ample facilities for assembly and sub-assembly. Methods of packing and dispatch are also arranged to meet the customer's own handling requirements.
It all adds up to a total service from design to delivery and one that fits so smoothly into our customer's production schedule that they soon come to consider us an extension of their own organisation.
