Ebbw Vale’s roots lay in the coal and steel industry. Indeed, steel from Ebbw Vale can be found around the world; even crossing the Sydney Harbour Bridge means benefitting from a little bit of South Wales steel.

With the decline of the coal and steel industry, a number of other businesses and sectors have come to the area to take their place. The Rassau Industrial Estate is one of South Wales’ best-known business destinations.

And Control Gear has been on hand throughout those changing times. Designing and installing new compressor systems and servicing old ones, we have been the people that countless companies rely on to keep them running.

However much the area has changed, Control Gear’s commitment to offering the best quality service has been constant. That’s why so many rely on us when it comes to compressors, pneumatics, hydraulics, and anything else from our range of leading services.

Ebbw Vale: From Steel Roots to Modern Industrial Estates with Control Gear

Ebbw Vale’s industrial narrative is both rich and storied, with its origins dating back to 1790 when the town witnessed the establishment of its first blast furnace. This early venture marked the beginning of a long-standing industrial legacy, with the plant notably supplying rails for the Stockton & Darlington Railway in 1829. The town’s industrial prowess continued to grow, and by 1866, one of the first steel plants was inaugurated. The early 1920s saw the Ebbw Vale Company at its zenith, employing a staggering 34,000 workers.

However, like many industrial towns, Ebbw Vale faced challenges. The 1930s brought about a sharp downturn in the steel and coal sectors. Yet, in the face of adversity, Ebbw Vale showcased its resilience, emerging as Britain’s premier tinplate producer. This illustrious chapter came to a close in 2002, marking the end of over two centuries of industrial innovation in Ebbw Vale.

Yet, the spirit of industry in Ebbw Vale remains undeterred. The town has witnessed the rise of new industrial hubs, with the Rassau Industrial Estate standing out as one of the most renowned in South Wales.

In this evolving industrial landscape, Control Gear plays a pivotal role, ensuring that businesses, both established and emerging, are equipped with the best air compressors and services, reinforcing Ebbw Vale’s position as a beacon of industrial excellence.
