Colson – A Company Profile



A West Yorkshire based valve manufacturer is on the move again. Colson Industries Ltd who are one of the world leaders in the design and manufacture of instrumentation and bespoke valves for the Oil / Gas and Petrochemical industry have run out of space and it’s only 8 years since they last moved. In 1995 Mr Colin Smith-Moorhouse (Managing Director) was approached by former employees of his previous company with a view to set up a new valve manufacturing company.

In 1996 Colson Industries Ltd launched its first range of valves into the marketplace from a small workshop based in Elland.

Since these humble times Colson Industries Ltd has not only increased their factory size but also their product range which now includes Ball, Needle, Check, Manifold, Monoflanges and Double block and bleed valves.

In 2003 Colson Industries Ltd moved to their current home situated at Park Works, unit 1, a 15000 ft² factory based in Elland, but due to their ever increasing customer demands for new and larger valves, Colson Industries Ltd where running out of space and they knew the only way forward was more room and new machinery, so they started looking for a new factory in the of summer of 2010.

At the beginning of 2011 Unit 2 at Park Works became available so the decision to add 13000 ft² from Unit 2 to the existing 15000 ft² from unit 1 was an easy one to make, giving them a total of 28000 ft².

Colson Industries Ltd has already spent over £175,000 in the past few months on new machinery and there is more to come says Colin Smith-Moorhouse. The move will be completed by the end of July 2011.
