This unrivalled experience means that we are now one of the leaders in the U.K. market and our products are used in utilities, construction and engineering projects throughout the world. Headquartered in Glasgow, with a branch in Inverness and having many global customers, 60-70 % of the products we supply are delivered out with Scotland.
With around 30 employees, who are some of the most experienced in the industry, we are currently the largest gasket manufacturers supplying the water, waste water and gas utilities and the pipeline industry in the U.K. where we have long term supply agreements in place. Our niche service is the supply of flange sets comprising pipeline gaskets along with the relevant fasteners in a branded set which provides considerable savings in time, cost and waste for the end user. We also distribute to these sectors in Europe, the Middle East and the Far East, and, closer to home, our Inverness branch has been a main supplier to the Scotch whisky industry for over 40 years.
