Alliance & Heatshield History


Alliance Engineering Supplies (South Wales) Limited was founded in 1968 as a specialist hand cut, bespoke gasket supply service for Chemical, Power, Mining, Shipping, Engineering and many other Steel Fabrication contracts throughout the South Wales corridor.
The addition of Industrial Textiles, Gland Packings, Compensators, Flexible Connectors and Boiler Spares broadened the product range during the early years as the Company established itself in the industrial markets and gained a reputation for excellent service and consistent quality.
Alliance became part of Avon Group Manufacturing in 1981 and, under thedirectorship of Ken Robbins and with the combination of some innovative thinking, coupled with the traditional virtues of integrity and persona! service, the organization steadily expanded to become a prominent manufacturing and supply company to its clientele.
New premises were acquired in 1990 with the assistance of Cardiff and Vale Enterprise and machine cutting facilities were installed to further enhance the Company's capabilities.
BS5750 Part 2 quality accreditation through BSI was achieved in September 1993 and a further significant development in January 1995 was the purchase of Heatshield Engineering from Abercarn. Heatshield manufactured a wide range of products from Ceramic, Plastic, PVC, Cork, Synthetic Rubber and Paper materials.

The Company expertly and sympathetically orchestrated the successful conversion to Non-Asbestos products for its customers in the early nineties, following the UK and eventual worldwide ban on the use of Asbestos materials.
In 1999 and now as Alliance and Heatshield Engineering (South Wales), the Company was purchased by J A Harrison & Co (Manchester) Limited. With the added support and manufacturing prowess of a major UK player, Alliance rapidly expanded both its product range and market presence and with a combination of new technologies, new cutting facilities and engineering skills, has become a significant part and a fiercely independent member of the Gasket industry within the UK markets.
