Colson X-Cel Ltd - A Truly 100% British-made Valve Product


In a day when "made in the UK" generally means bought from low-cost countries by UK manufacturers, Colson X-Cel Ltd are maintaining their policy of only using critical materials purchased from UK stockholders and forgemasters. Machining of the components is carried out in-house using our bank of twenty two modern CNC Millers and Lathes.

Most of our competitors present a Western-European manufactured front; when in reality, most key parts that see the process media such as stems & balls are produced in India, China or Taiwan. In many cases, the whole product is manufactured for them within these low-cost countries.

For all our Instrument and Piping DBB products the valve bodies, bonnets, flanges, stems, trunnion caps and other major parts are machined by Colson X-Cel Ltd at our Elland manufacturing plant. Our balls and tungsten coated seats are manufactured in-group by Sheridan X-Cel, now based in our Sheffield AMP facility.

If you want the security of having a "UK manufactured" product on your FPSO or platform, then please contact us on or by calling sales on (01422) 377999, option 1.
