We had some fantastic feedback from our customer RS Hydraulics Ltd, following our speedy supply of some cylinder components, that were required for next day delivery.

When working on a special application for a customer, that specifically required parts that could tolerate intense environments, RS Hydraulics Ltd ordered some glands from our new stainless steel range. The job was urgent and so the parts were ordered and delivered the next day, allowing the work to be carried out in good time.

Ray Sherman, Managing Director at RS Hydraulics said, “We started using FPE Seals a few years ago, when they were recommended to us by another supplier. Since then, they have been our preferred supplier, having always been impressed with the excellent service and wealth of knowledge received from the FPE Seals team.

“They offer a good range of products, with a fast turnaround on both seals (either standard off the shelf or made to order) and cylinder parts. Their prices are always competitive too. The internal sales team are very pleasant, courteous and really know their stuff. They are pleasure to do business with.”
