From Industrial Might to Natural Delight: The Evolution of South East Carmarthenshire

Tinplate, Steel, and Coal flourished during the second half of the 19th Century, with air compressors playing a pivotal role in their operations. South East Carmarthenshire became a highly industrialised region, and Control Gear was at the forefront of servicing and installing these essential air compressors.

Due to significant competition and location, however, all these industries faced challenges. Prior to the industrial revolution, Carmarthen was one of the most populous towns in Wales. Today, Agriculture, Forestry, and Tourism are the main employment sectors in the area, but the legacy of air compressors and their impact on the region’s industrial growth remains evident.
