1986: The Beginning
Vulcan Engineering - The Beginning
On a particularly non eventful day in the UK and whilst travelling, and passing the Sheffield City Hall that supports the statue of Vulcan, a budding entrepreneur, Gerry Quinn, had a flash of inspiration that would change his life.
A University Graduate and already employed in the Sealing Industry he there and then decided to establish his own company and to develop products compatible for the niche market of Single Spring Mechanical Seals.
The rest, as they say, is history with the creation in 1986 of Vulcan Engineering Limited. From very early days, the company differentiated from other suppliers by developing the “whole” package from initial product concept and design to total in house manufacture to storage and distribution, all self managed and controlled and we continue in this way today, but now very much automated and electronic.
Our innovation and ethos to provide only best service is now increasingly recognised not only within the UK, where our original customer base developed and increasingly the USA, but also World Wide and into every continent.
