Pneumatic Components Limited (PCL), the world-leading brand for tyre inflation and compressed air products, has extended a traditionally warm Yorkshire welcome to its new subsidiary company, UK valve manufacturer Colson X-Cel Ltd.

The purchase of the globally respected manufacturer of industrial valves for the control and regulation of liquids and gases officially completed on 5th June.

PCL’s ultimate shareholder INDUS Holding AG said Rotherham-based Colson will further strengthen INDUS’s international strategy of local-for-local manufacturing. The medium-sized company has around 40 employees, generates annual sales of around £6m, and has been an established, key supplier of valves to the chemical, offshore, oil and gas industries since the 1990s.

Colson’s range of double block and bleed and instrument valves are machined, assembled, tested and quality assured in-house at its facility just outside Sheffield. Its high-quality portfolio will complement the HORNGROUP’s expert solutions for refuelling and workshop applications and PCL’s advanced and innovative pneumatic portfolio, which includes the brand’s world-famous “Made in Sheffield” products.

Moving forward, it will be business as usual for Colson. The company will continue to be managed by existing directors James Hinchliffe (Sales) and Dean Groombridge (Production), with James Houston, Dean Battersby and Lee Wright also joining the board of directors.

Managing Director Lee Wright said: “I am delighted to introduce Colson X-Cel as a new and valued member of the family. The company’s South Yorkshire roots and dedication to UK manufacturing, coupled with its exacting standards for product performance, safety and reliability, make Colson the ideal addition to our fold, where customer satisfaction comes first. It’s clear that we share many of the same values and ideas.

“As we look to understand more about the differing market and product profiles, our aim is to support and facilitate future growth, as well as begin to understand how we might unlock synergistic benefits for both businesses over the longer term.”
