News: AESSEAL wins Queen's Award for Innovation


Most companies would be happy to win just one Queen's Award but Rotherham-based AESSEAL is not like most companies.

With global headquarters at Templeborough, AESSEAL manufactures seals to stop leakage of harmful liquids and gases into the environment for a wide range of industries, including oil and gas, food, water, mining and pharmaceuticals.

The company and its subsidiaries have now won 13 Queen's Awards - considered the highest official UK awards for British businesses - with the latest award recognising AESSEAL's innovation.

The award for Innovation is in recognition of the development of a novel modular approach with standardised components, to deliver a step change in the supply chain for seal support systems.

The seal support systems have traditionally been individually designed to meet the required specification, resulting in significantly long lead times not consistent with the supply times for the seals themselves.

AESSEAL has 10,000 product lines available from stock and are experts in customisation, manufacturing 44,000 product variations. Over ten million permutations can be delivered from stock. The new range supports the company purpose statement - "to give our customers such exceptional service that they need never consider alternative sources of supply."


In development for almost four years, the range incorporates unique patented features which help to improve pump reliability. And by incorporating a build to order philosophy, the new range offers a larger selection of product variants, and standard product lines can be easily adapted to suit the customer's requirements.

Manufacturing the majority of the parts themselves, and having full control of the supply chain, AESSEAL can also offer a portfolio of seals that meet the hygiene standards of customers in the food sector.

The new product range is further supported by a new application that enables an equivalent AESSEAL component seal to easily be selected knowing just the pump type, competitor seal reference, or dimensional information.

Stephen Shaw, group engineering director at AESSEAL, said: "These developments have revolutionised our ability to supply complex seal support systems, providing the level of customer service that our customers have grown to expect from AESSEAL."

Winners of the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are visited by a Royal representative and are presented with a crystal bowl as a mark of their achievement. They are also invited to attend a reception at Buckingham Palace in July 2016.

Chris Rea, OBE, DL, founder and group managing director at AESSEAL, said "AES Engineering and its subsidiary AESSEAL have previously won 12 Queens Awards since 1988 which means we have had the honour and privilege of being able to fly the flag and use the Queen's Award emblem in our marketing."
