It’s hard to believe that the best part of seven decades has passed since our company was founded by my father back in 1948. It was the year that saw London host the Olympic Games for the second time, the first British aeroplane broke the sound barrier and, the equally celebrated and derided organisation, British Railways was created.
The world has changed immeasurably in the years that have ensued and the Chemical Pipe and Vessel Company, as it was known back in the early days, has itself experienced its fair share of change. However, some things have remained the same, namely, our guiding principles and the ethos that have helped CPV to become a world-class manufacturer of engineering pipework solutions for a wide array of applications, including corrosion-resistant pipe solutions and pre-insulated pipe systems for district heating applications.
CPV was a pioneer in the development of thermoplastic pipe systems and, to this day, we are still committed to driving forward innovation in products, services and manufacturing techniques. This not only improves the way in which our products perform, but it often lowers our clients’ capital and operational expenditure.
A friendly, family-run concern
Although we have steadily grown over the years to become an international group of companies, we have made a determined effort to retain our closely-held values as a friendly, family-run business. This filters through every aspect of the CPV Group, to the mutual benefit of our clients, employees, suppliers and associates. The markets in which we operate remain dynamic and, as environmental concerns grow ever-stronger, the demand for our state-of-the-art pipe systems continues to increase.
Thank you for taking the time to read this introduction, the remainder of this website will provide you with a host of information on our company and just how it can assist you with your projects and applications.
