Lintott's Heritage


The Company's roots date back to the late 1970's.  In 1980, "Lintott Control Equipment Limited" was formed as a result of a management buyout of the electrical division of Ashlow Steel (a subsidiary of Bridon PLC) which became merged with a portion of the electronics business of Lintott Engineering Limited.

In the Company’s fledgling years, it designed, manufactured, & commissioned Electrical Control Systems, predominantly for the Steel Industry.  Between 1980 & 1995, the Company expanded into other Sectors including Water, Process Industries & Oil & Gas.  The Company’s competence was also broadened to include Hydraulic Control Systems.   

In April 1995, the Company was acquired by Wormald Ansul (UK) Ltd (part of Tyco International Inc).  From 1998 to 2002, Wormald acquired several other businesses & underwent several restructures.  This led to a trading style change to “Tyco Control Systems”.  In 1999, the Company acquired & integrated the Chemical Dosing Systems business of Sensors & Systems, which significantly broadened the product portfolio.

On the 30th of December 2005, following a management buyout & the prior creation of Lintott Control Systems Limited, the new enterprise acquired the stock, assets & right to succeed to the business of Tyco Control Systems.

In March 2012, the need to re-invent the business was identified.  Led by 2 externally sourced Directors, a comprehensive 'root & branch' overhaul ensued, which established health & safety excellence, customer concentricity, collaboration, value & simplicity as components of the Company’s DNA.  Today, technology & people are 2 additional strands, which fuel the continuous improvement & growth of the Company.
