Besseges (Valves, Tubes and Fittings) Ltd opened for business in the last quarter of 1988 as a trade counter business; working from James Howe Mill in Ashton under Lyne. In the early days we were better known as a supplier of pipeline material to the fire protection industry; than the process steam supplier who started out selling Spirax Sarco products. The business began to grow, and our present Managing Director saw we needed fresh staff in warehousing and a sales engineer on the road.
The present management team working with the Managing Director are the same two people who joined the business in 1989 and watched it grow to what it is today; both are shareholders and an integral part of this successful business. This of course does not detract from the fantastic sales team we have and our excellent warehouse team who are led by our warehousing and logistics Director. Our story of how we became a TLV distributor and the growth into a leading process steam specialist began in 1989.
