Newport’s history dates back to a Celtic settlement over 2000 years ago, and the City’s location at the mouth of the river Usk has attracted visitors for centuries. Caerleon, just a few miles from Newport was the site of a fortress of the 2nd Roman Legion from the first century AD. The remains of the barracks, bathhouse and amphitheatre are among the best-preserved Roman military sites in Britain.
During the 19th Century Industrial Revolution, Newport expanded rapidly from a small seaport town to one of the most important places in the country for coal export and steel production. Trade flourished and further extension to the docks added to Newport’s reputation. In 1914 over 6 million tons of coal were shipped from Newport.
Today Newport is the base for a wide range of industry all of whom require compressed air and gas generation equipment for their processes.
