PRV Engineering Ltd was first established in 1986 manufacturing
pressings for the food packaging industry. Over the years, their engineering services
expanded into the Railway Sector, Aerospace and Defence among others. This was
largely due to a forward-thinking approach and continuous investment in staff,

It all began with the introduction of jars and bottles
as the requirement for their products started to decline. In 1998, PRV changed direction
and moved into subcontract engineering selling their remaining presses. Two
years later, in 2000, they expanded their now well-equipped 29,000 sq ft
facility in Pontypool, South Wales.
successful engineering company with high quality fabrication services requires

in equipment and staff should be extremely high on anyone’s priority list.
Quality and customer service excellence are two of the most important factors and

Even though copper is the most popular choice for use in busbars, and used very often in other electrical applications because it is more resistant to rust and corrosion than other metals, this doesn’t mean that it won’t oxidize over time.
When metals oxidize, the resistance in the conductive metal will increase, requiring more power to be used to carry current along the surface. When the copper oxidizes beyond a certain point, the metal can begin to flake and fall apart. Continue reading →
As the economy throughout the world, and in Great Britain began to sink at the latter part of the last decade, copper thefts were on the rise.
