About Us

Since our foundation in 1923 our company has grown out of all recognition from its early beginnings over 90 years ago in London.  We have continually expanded our range of Chain, Rope and associated products to meet the needs of our extensive, worldwide customer base and for many years have been leading Chain Suppliers to many markets from the domestic hardware, DIY, lighting, plumbing and construction industries to government departments, public authorities, general engineering, materials handling, marine and security applications to name a few.   
A major expansion took place when our Godalming warehouse opened in 1988 and also on the purchase of machinery and equipment from the administrators of both Lemet Hartland & Eastwood in 2004 as well as G & J Swingler Limited in 2008. 

2017 was a busy year of acquisitions, with the acquisition of Ashley Chains, Sterling Security, Sterling Wholesale and Equine Security.

The expansion continued in 2019, when we moved from our 9,000 sq./ft warehouse in Godalming to a 20,000 sq./ft purpose-built warehouse and distribution centre in Petersfield.
As Chain Manufacturers of millions of Assemblies per year, designing and manufacturing the most cost-effective Assemblies for our customers is an important part of our service.  Our product range, experience and capacity enable us to produce small prototype batches as well as millions for scheduled call-off orders.
Our reputation has been built upon our wide range of high-quality products, our competitiveness and in-depth stockholding in addition to our many years of experience, technical expertise and high levels of professionalism and service in this very specialised market.
