Our History

The company was formed in Halifax, West Yorkshire, UK in 1945 to manufacture air tools for use by the Motor Trade and Aircraft Industry.

In 1954 the company designed and patented the twin piston air reciprocating saw and improved on this through another patent in 1964. The result of this was the production of a lightweight, reliable saw which needed only a small volume of air to operate even to the point of being able to work effectively from the contents of a small air cylinder. This policy of product development has continued ever since with improvements to design, quality and materials being one of the reasons why the saws continue to the best of their kind in the world.

Our saws are used for cutting every type of metal and composites in a wide range of industries including:

  • Offshore Oil Rigs
  • Petrochemical Refineries
  • Luxury Yacht Manufacture
  • Wooden Pallet Repair
  • Bus and Specialist Vehicle Manufacturing
