Where It All Began

As we begin our blog and by way of introduction, we thought it might be useful to start off with a bit of an overview of Pegler Yorkshire – a bit of history, our role in the plumbing and heating industry, and our commitment to providing our customers worldwide with innovative products that help them do their job better.

Pegler Yorkshire is a well-respected UK company, one that has been serving the plumbing and heating industries for over 120 years!

 Originally trading as Pegler Ltd (est. 1899) and Yorkshire Fittings Ltd (est. 1888) our past is steeped in history. Many of today’s plumbing market sectors and market leading products have been developed by Pegler Yorkshire. The legendary integral solder ring (“the Yorkshire Fitting”) in the 1930’s, the screw down tap in the 1940’s, the domestic radiator valve (“the Terrier”) in the 1960’s, and in more recent years the thermostatic radiator valve, the press fit fitting and of course the metal push fit fitting, to name but a few.

The business has also played its part in the wider community throughout the years converting production to munitions and aeroplane manufacture during the world wars.
 Pegler Ltd merged with Yorkshire Fittings Ltd in 2007 and today, Pegler Yorkshire employs over 750 people over two sites at Doncaster and Leeds.

Throughout our history Pegler Yorkshire products have become synonymous with innovation and quality as we continually challenge ourselves to retain our position as a leading brand in all sectors in which we operate.

Ongoing Investment

 A £12 million investment programme has seen the installation of new machinery and a new rod extrusion plant allowing us to continue our high standards of production. And, at a satellite site near Rotherham, a fully automated warehousing facility.

The investment continues today with new facilities in Leeds to manufacture push fit fittings and new casting and stamping equipment in Doncaster to shape the products for the future.

Renowned for our product innovation, we are responsive to customer feedback and this has seen the development and growth of our ‘Tectite’ range – push fit solutions across a wide range of materials and applications – aimed at the professional installer who values his time but doesn’t want to compromise on quality and durability.

Another of our revolutionary products is the ‘Terrier i-temp’ programmable radiator control which enables both domestic and business users to control time as well as temperature, utilising energy consumption more effectively. It can deliver up to 30% off fuel bills which is a significant cost-saving for all users.

The future

 Pegler Yorkshire is proud to be part of the global Aalberts Industries which has assisted our worldwide expansion and penetration into new markets with the support of a network of sister companies and professional sales networks.

 We are committed to leading the way in developing new products and are continually finding new and innovative ways to provide solutions and improvements. We have also embarked on a social media strategy helping us to engage more with our customers and their customers ensuring our new developments are in-line with industry and individuals’ requirements.
