British Made Valves and Fittings

We're Celebrating Too! 30-05-2022

With the Queen’s platinum jubilee this week, we’re celebrating, and we’re also flying the flag for British manufacturing. 

Bryan Donkin Valves for Gas

It’s great that The Queen is marking 70 years on the Throne, but did you know that later this year we’re also celebrating 175 years of Donkin valves! Manufacturing gas valves since 1847.

That’s a lot of history in the manufacture and production of market leading Bryan Donkin products for the gas industry world wide and we’re proud to say that quality is built into all our products, from the initial concept, design and right through the manufacturing process at our factory in Chesterfield, United Kingdom.

AVK was the first in the gas distribution sector to achieve the international quality standard ISO/TS 29001:2011 for the entire design-to-delivery gas valve manufacturing process, in addition to ISO 9001 quality management and ISO 14001 for environmental management certification.

Our valves are all approved to UK Gas Industry Standards (GIS) and certified to the BSI Kitemark scheme. Other relevant international standards are complied with where appropriate including the European Pressure Equipment Directive (PED).

In the run up to the Jubilee we'll post about our other UK manufacturing sites as the week goes on.
