Hayward Tyler Fluid Handling, a division of the Hayward Tyler Group, is celebrating 50 years of business in August this year. This is an important milestone for the company who today specialise in the design and manufacture of canned motor pumps.
Since its establishment in 1959 in East Kilbride, Scotland, by Jock Craig, who set up the business to manufacture ceramic lined pumps, the company has grown steadily, supplying specialist agitators and canned motor pumps for industries such as chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, food & dairy and beverage & breweries. Most recently the company has been focusing on its range of canned motor pumps for the nuclear industry winning some highly prestigious contracts.

The success of the business can be attributed to a number of factors in addition to their niche-engineered products. These include the manufacturing plant capabilities, quality and environmental management systems and certification. Primarily however the success of the business is down to its people, its greatest asset. A combination of long servers and fresh faces, including new craft apprentices, give a combined service of over 250 years. To complement the team further investment has recently been made in machine tools, expansion of the offices and improved IT systems.
Paul Noble, Managing Director of Fluid Handling stated “Our golden jubilee is not just a celebration of the past but more importantly of the future. We have a fantastic heritage and this, along with our ability to design and build mission critical long life equipment, places us in a strong position to continue as a specialised engineering business for the next 50 years.”
