PPS, our story
PPS was founded in 1991 by Gary Whitaker to offer energy-saving advice and solutions to manufacturers and other industries that rely on compressed air and related products.
A wealth of industry expertise
Having started in the compressed air business as an apprentice, Gary brought his experience and passion for helping customers to his new company and built a team around him with a wealth of expertise in the compressed air industry.
After outgrowing a succession of offices in Halifax, the company moved into its current state-of-the-art premises, The Yorkshire Air Centre in Brighouse, West Yorkshire, in 2017.
Designed to provide a positive working environment for PPS staff, with ample office space and meeting rooms, the HQ also boasts workshop space for ducting manufacture and equipment repairs, and a sales counter open to the public for spares, parts and tools.
Expansion and acquisition
Over the years, the company has grown in size and stature, taking on new staff, supporting several apprenticeships and acquiring Sheffield-based company Simm Engineering Group in 2015.
In 2018, a new era of growth began designed to take the business to the next level. Investment from R&G Fluid Power Group allowed Gary Whitaker to step down as Managing Director and Ian Harrison to take over the helm. Ian is a highly respected professional with many years of experience and technical expertise, he has been with PPS since 2001.
A customer-led approach
A leading provider of compressed air solutions and an Atlas Copco Premier Distributor, we also demonstrate a commitment to generating energy savings for our customers through our Carbon Trust Accreditation.
As the company moves onwards and upwards, we will continue to take a refreshing customer-led approach, while keeping abreast of new technologies and industry developments.
