Generations of heating engineers and end users alike have long
associated the Potterton name with top quality, high specification
products that are easy to install and are reliable in service.

Founded over 150 years ago, and with more than 5 million boilers
installed, Potterton has entered the 21st Century at the forefront
of domestic heating technology as part of the UK's largest heating

All Potterton products benefit from world class manufacturing skills
and one of the largest and most experienced research development
teams in the industry. They are designed to be inherently reliable
and to meet the most demanding user needs.

Potterton aims to provide the very highest levels of customer
satisfaction. A team of over 200 highly trained specialists
engineers provide speedy on site service, 363 days of the year,
whilst the Potterton telephone technical support desk is available
6 days a week to deal with technical queries. In addition spare
parts are readily available through a network of approved stockists.

The Potterton brand can be traced back as far as 1850 when Thomas
Potterton started the firm in Balham, London, and it is one of the
oldest and most prestigious names in the heating industry. Potterton
completed the installation of the first ever gas boiler, the Victor,
in 1902, and rapidly followed up this innovative event with a
multiple installation of 16 Victor boilers in 1908 at Eugene Sandow's
culture institution.

Throughout the twenties and thirties Potterton led the way in
developing the gas heating market, with Potterton boilers appearing
in a number of distinguished addresses, including Nos. 10 and 11
Downing Street and the Odeon, Leicester Square. In the mid fifties
the famous Diplomat series of floor standing gas boilers was launched -
the first of the modern generation of boilers - and many are still
operating in homes throughout the UK today.

Potterton led the way again in 1973 when the revolutionary Netaheat
wallhung fan-flued boiler was launched, and thus set the standard
for current modern wall hung boilers.

In 1992 Potterton became part of the newly created Potterton-Myson
Group, part of the Heating Division of Blue Circle Industries, and
continued to lead the way in heating innovation with products such
as the first floor mounted fan-flued boiler, Kingfisher Mf, and
production of its five millionth boiler in the nineties.

In 1999 Blue Circle divested itself of the Heating Division,
and Potterton was sold to Baxi.

Today Potterton is one of the lead brands of Baxi Potterton, and
continues its commitment to innovation, service and developing
world class products for the 21st century heating industry.

Potterton aims to provide the very highest levels of customer
satisfaction. Heateam provide on site service 363 days of the
year via over 200 service engineers. Potterton telephone technical
support desk is available 6 days a week to deal with technical
queries. In addition spare parts are readily available through a
network of approved stockists.

Although boilers differ in size and whether they stand on the floor,
hang on the wall or sit inside a fireplace, probably the most
important difference is the way they produce hot water for washing,
bathing and showering. Traditional boilers and system boilers heat
water in a storage cylinder, typically sited in an airing cupboard.
Combination boilers heat water instantaneously (via a special heat
exchanger inside the boiler) only when you open a hot tap.

Traditional boilers are the simplest kind, with the fewest
components inside. System boilers and combination boilers are more
complex and tend to be larger because they always include the pump
which circulates water through the radiators, and an expansion
vessel to accommodate the increase in volume when it gets hot.

Traditional and system boilers with stored hot water systems are
best suited to family homes where hot water demand is usually greatest.
The average combination boiler is best suited to single households or
couples with modest hot water needs.

A Traditional Boiler
Traditional boilers are available in a wide range of designs and
outputs to suit almost any situation. Back boilers save space by
sitting inside a fireplace opening and are cost effective like-for-like
replacements. Wall mounted boilers can be small enough to fit inside a
kitchen cupboard and still be powerful enough for the larger property.
A traditional or system boiler (one with some system components built
into the case) can deliver lashings of hot water to several taps
simultaneously. You need space for a cylinder as well as a boiler but
modern versions are often surprisingly compact. You also have to
anticipate your hot water need but modern controls make it easy to plan
around your daily/weekly routine and the new generation of 'high
recovery' cylinders are designed to cater for unexpected demand.

A Combination Boiler
A combination boiler heats water instantaneously whenever you open
a hot tap, so you don't need space for a storage cylinder. In Summer
there's often a delay until it reaches working temperature but the
supply is endless. The temperature at the tap is dependent on the
temperature of the mains supply and the flow rate. In Winter the
delivery of usefully hot water can be very limited - perhaps taking
two or three times longer to fill a bath than a traditional system -
and simultaneous demand by a shower and, say, a washing machine can
result in a trickle at each. The latest models feature high outputs,
small stores or pre-heating systems designed to supply more hot water
and with minimal delay to save wasting water.

As the company enters its centenary year, Rudge & Co have seen many
dramatic changes throughout its history.

Based in the Highgate area of Birmingham, Rudge & Co was founded in
1901 by Mr H E Rudge making solid brass bathroom fittings. Today,
that tradition continues and although the technology has changed
during this period, the style and quality of the end products have
remained the same.

As Rudge & Co continue to conquer America, other areas of export
continue to grow including Europe, South Africa, New Zealand and
Canada. Other projects closer to home have included a recent
refurbishment of a luxurious hotel on Buckingham Palace Road
overlooking Buckingham Palace. Their architects chose Rudge &
Co's brassware for both its wuality and by 'demanding the best
the market has to offer'.

Rudge & Co's Own plating department means that many of the ranges
are available in up to 10 different finishes. Gold plating the roof
of a sikh temple is one of the more unusual projects undertaken by
the team team in recent months.

Rudge & Co are renowned for high quality kitchen and bathroom
brassware and were honoured in March 2001 by a royal visit from
His Highness The Duke of York who unveiled a plaque commemorating
the company's centenary year and central Television completed and
screened a profile of the company's achievement's.

Now estabilished as a leading quality brassware manufacturer,
the company works hard to develop close working relationships with
all its customers old or new.

At Scotbench we believe that our clients should get what they want,
without compromise. Why settle for an off-the-shelf solution which
does not fulfil your needs completely? Our design philosophy of
"If it can be drawn, we can build it" results in the right goods
for the right job everytime.

All of our own manufactured benches are made to order and a design
is prepared for the client before we commence manufacture. Our
preferred route is to discuss the application with the client and
then put forward a design together with costs for their particular
requirement.Our clients have found this approach particularly helpful
as it ensures that they get a useful, practical and correct solution.
Our benches can be categorised by the type of work for which they are
required-light duty/ standard duty/ medium duty/ heavy duty and the
specific type of work performed at the bench - assembly/ re-build/
test/ inspection/ analysis.

We would be delighted to assist you with your requirement for
workbenches no matter where your location. However we do not have
personal sales representation in some areas so these enquiries are
dealt with using modern types of verbal and written communication.
Some indeed prefer that we do not make personal visits and we are
happy to liase with them remotely. We do sell successfully to
companies far from our facility without problem and have a long
list of satisfied clients who have chosen this preferred route.
All you have to do is let us know what size/ height/ type/ colour
of benches you require together with a list of accessories you might
want to fit to the benches i.e., Upper shelves, lower shelf, power
rails, drawers, cupboards lighting, tool rails, louvre panels, bin
rails, special fixtures, etc. We can design benches for you if you
feed us with the performance criteria give us an idea of what you
want. In turn we'll send you a quotation based on your reqquirements.

Pallets and Stillages
Similarly, like our benches, opur pallets and stillages are made to
order basing our designs on information we source from our clients.
Our designers and engineering production staff will liase with
clients then produce quotations based on these requirements. Before
we commence manufacture we prepare comprehensive design drawings
showing exacltly what we shall build.

>From a single stillage to specifically designed storage unit,
Scotbench is proud of a wealth of experience together with a broad
knowledge gained over the years to apply to all steel fabrications
for materials handling and storage application. A range of pallets
and stillages is available in a wide variety of capacities while at
the same time we offer a comprehensive design service for those
goods requiring a bit more thought and attention.

All of our products are designed to last. We take our product
quality issues very seriously and would welcome any comments about
our products constructive or otherwise.

standards before shipping.

All our products are cast in high density "Herculite". A compound
that is VERY strong and ideally suited to demanding high resolution
casting. Moulds are made in latex from the sculptured original
"masters" and each casting is hand poured and then dried in a
commercial hot air oven. Upon removal from the latex mould each
piece is inspected for quality and then the task of hand completion
begins. This is a process of many stages and includes filling, rubbing
down, detail enhancement and finally the application of the realistic
bone finish by our art department. Click here for details. This
intense degree of individual attention to detail results in each
piece having it's own unique character, making each skullsdirect
piece a true collector's item!

Originally called Tokyo Tsushin Kogyo (Tokyo Telecommunications
Engineering Company), Sony’s roots go back over half a century to
1946 when it was founded by Masaru Ibuka and Akio Morita. In the
crippled post-war Japanese economy Ibuka and Morita made their
living repairing radios and manufacturing small numbers of
voltmeters whilst looking to develop a future in designing and
manufacturing new electronics. Perhaps surprisingly, their first
electronic innovation was an automatic rice cooker. Its success was
limited but it was the first in a long line of innovations which
continue today.

Ibuka and Morita were global thinkers. They realised the need for
a global brand which crossed cultural and language borders in order
to expand the business in the US and later Europe. TTK was already
being used by another company so a new name, Sony, was conceived.
The name Sony derives from the Latin word sonus meaning sound and
the English word sonny-boy - a term used by the Americans in the
1950's to denote a bright youngster.

Although the name of the company was not officially changed to
Sony Corporation until 1958, the first Sony branded product was the
TR-55 transistor radio which went on sale in 1955. This was shortly
followed by Sony’s world first "pocketable" transistor radio. Sony’s
UK history began in 1968 when Sony United Kingdom was founded in
London. Six years later Sony became the first major Japanese company
to open a factory in the UK. Today there are two factories, both in
Wales, at Bridgend and Pencoed, which between them manufacture
broadcast cameras, television sets and components for the UK and
export to other countries around the world. Indeed, Sony was awarded
the prestigious Queens Award for Export on four occasions in the 80s
and 90s. Today Sony UK employs around 4,500 people in functions
including Manufacturing, Sales and Marketing. Sony’s UK Headquarters
are located at Brooklands, near Weybridge, in Surrey, on the site of
the old Brooklands Racing Circuit, just inside the M25.

Sony products can be found just about everywhere in the world.
Together with this global profile comes a global responsibility
towards environmental awareness and action. This is why we address
this issue on many fronts. An internal ecological programme traces
our products and the consequences of their use from conception
through to their final disposal - so that we can learn to minimise
the ecological effects of everything we do. Employee training
increases awareness and dozens of other environmental efforts add
up to a serious commitment to a sustainable environment.

We are also using more environmentally friendly materials when
producing our products. This includes modifying the flame-retardants
we use to make them less harmful in product such as our home video
decks and recorders, DVD players, VAIO laptops and monitors. Some
of our latest DVD players include new glass epoxy, multi-layered
wiring boards containing alternative flame-retardants based on
phosphor and nitrogen compounds which are environmentally friendly.
We are also using recycle-friendly packaging, such as the innovative
"one-piece" box used for Sony VCRs. Developed in co-operation with
Chuoh Pack Industry Co., Ltd. the one-piece box was awarded the
WorldStar Award '98 from the World Packaging Organisation.

Sony has adopted the internationally recognised ISO 14001
Environmental Management System. We continually re-assess our
activities and strive to improve our current environmental management
systems. This includes environmental awareness training for our
employees, as well as ongoing evaluations of the ecological impact
and economic performance of our operations. All Sony Manufacturing
sites in the UK are accredited to Environmental Management Standard
ISO 14001 and Sony UK's main office in Weybridge, its Logistics Centre
in Thatcham and Centre in West Drayton are also accredited to ISO
14001. The TV Manufacturing plants in Wales have won many prestigious
awards including the Queen's Award for the Environment and also the
Wales Environment Award.

Tefal is the world leader in non-stick cookware.

But not only that... Tefal is a global brand of Groupe SEB, a
world leader of small domestic equipment with products sold in more
than 120 countries.

Tefal owes its origins to a Frenchman, Marc Grégoire, and his wife,
Colette. M. Grégoire, a keen fisherman, wanted to make his rod reel
in more smoothly and, in the 1950's, experimented to see if a non
stick coating might provide the answer. It did! But it was his wife
who made the real breakthrough by gently suggesting that coating the
cooking pans would have a more worthwhile application by making them
easier to cook with and simpler to clean.

Now, Tefal is the number one name in non-stick products and small
appliances, operating in over 120 countries.

Tefal remains committed to making household tasks easier and cooking
results better, through a constant flow of new ideas and technology.
