Mead Engineering Services Ltd


We actively manufacture pneumatic control valves and associated products for the transport, process, medical and machine control industries, offering an extensive component supply service.

Using the latest Solidworks 3D modelling techniques and associated rapid prototyping, we are able to design and manufacture bespoke pneumatic control valves to your exact specifications.

Mead Engineering Range

Established in 2004, at Mead Engineering Services we have over decades of experience in the pneumatics industry and are able to design special customer products with full technical support.

We manufacture a wide range of valves that interchange with the Mead Fluid Dynamics Ltd/Parker Pneumatics V15, V20, V21, V22 and V23 products. These robust, highly advanced valves are perfect for harsh or continuous use applications.

Also in the Mead Engineering range, we include special purpose cylinders designed to meet specific performance requirements, door control products and leisure applications.
