About HattersleyAbout Hattersley

The origins of Hattersley date to1897, when 20-year-old Richard Hattersley started a small tool-making business in Halifax. In the early 1900's he relocated to Ormskirk, and in 1910 he joined with three other engineering companies, including Newman Hender & Co. of Woodchester, to form United Brassfounders & Engineers.

By 1937 Hattersley & Newman Hender both enjoyed worldwide sales, with Hattersley exporting to some 73 countries. During the second world war, both companies entered war production, making fuses for armaments, brass rods for munitions factories and, of course, special valves for military purposes.

In 2004, Crane Limited, purchased the Hattersley valve brand and business from Hattersley Newman Hender Limited, a subsidiary of Tomkins plc. Peter Wilson, Managing Director of Crane Limited (which has since been renamed Crane Building Services & Utilities ) said at the time -

"The acquired business supplies a range of branded valves for use in heating, ventilating and air-conditioning systems for the commercial, industrial and institutional construction industry. The Hattersley business will be integrated into Crane Limited and further broaden our range of products and the fluid and gas handling solutions that we offer to the building services, industrial, water and gas markets"
