Compressed Air in Neath Port Talbot

Neath Port Talbot, as the name suggests, grew around a port. Located on the Swansea Bay, there is historical evidence that it was already in use as a port, although not a busy one, by medieval times. 

In and around any port, you’ll find that air compression plays a critical role. Logistics, for example, rely on compressed air. Within a warehouse, compressed air often powers the equipment that moves things around.

It can also have specialist uses in shipping, which can be used to manage and move bulk materials that might be in powder or pellet form. And, more simply, all those vehicles need their tyres inflating!

Neath Port Talbot: From Coal to Modern Manufacturing with Control Gear

Neath Port Talbot has been at the heart of the Industrial Revolution, particularly with its significant contributions to the coal industry in Wales. This robust infrastructure paved the way for the establishment and growth of industries such as copper smelting, tin plating, and ironworks, positioning Neath Port Talbot as a pivotal coal mining hub.

The region’s illustrious heritage can be traced back to the 16th Century when the port of Neath was developed, catalyzing the coal industry’s rapid expansion. By 1584, copper smelting was initiated at Aberdulais Tin Works, soon followed by iron smelting and corn milling. The momentum continued with the establishment of a tin plate works in 1830 and the founding of Neath Abbey Ironworks in 1792.

While the prominence of coal and iron has transitioned to steel, the Tata Steel Port Talbot Steelworks stands as a testament to the region’s enduring influence on the global manufacturing stage. Today, Neath Port Talbot continues its industrial legacy, housing a plethora of manufacturing facilities spanning steel, petrochemicals, and automotive sectors.
