Company History

Austin Stroud & Co was formed in 1978 as a machine shop specialising in customised alterations of flanges and butt weld fittings.

In 1979 it formed an alliance with Wilhem Geldbach GMBH and expanded into a stockist/distributor of flanges and butt weld fittings, eventually having warehouses in the Midlands, North East and North West of England. At the same time it had developed an export market, servicing the Middle East, Asia and North Africa offering complete piping packages.

In 1997 & 1998 the company invested and co-operated in establishing three factories in China manufacturing Flanges, Butt weld Fittings & Malleable Iron Fittings.  Together with a Canadian partner these factories were operated to European Standards and achieved ISO certification and excellent quality at a time when many factories in China were unable to manufacture products strictly in accordance with American or European standards.

In 1998 the distribution side of the business in UK was purchased by the BSS Group the largest UK distributor of pipes and pipeline accessories in the UK. Austin Stroud & Co. kept the export division and concentrated on expanding the sales of the Chinese factories products together with vetting other Chinese companies for quality and promoting their products.

In 2012 the Limited company was dissolved because the sanctions imposed on Iran prevented any trading with our main trading partners.
