Pneumatic & Hydraulic Couplings Ltd.

Company Background

Established in 1954 in Sheffield originally as a steel manufacturer, the company has since diversified into several areas of steel and tool manufacture including stainless steel bar and strip, high temperature alloys, general engineering steels and pneumatic and hydraulic components.

The tool division of the company included the manufacture of blanks for tools such as pliers, scissors and surgical instruments and having the background in tool manufacturing the opportunity to produce the Searcher Bar was presented in 1974.

During the early years of manufacturing the Searcher Bar, Peter Wood & Co. Ltd worked closely with British Gas Plc to develop both the design and safety factors for the bar.

British Gas produced a specification for the production of Searcher Bars, namely British Gas Engineering Standard PS/E8, updated to Gas Industry Standard GIS/E8:2006. "SAFEWAY" Searcher Bars are still made to the exact standards of materials and manufacture today.
