HTL celebrate 20 years at the top

HTL, a family run manufacturer and supplier of controlled bolting, flange working and portable machine solutions are celebrating 20 years of success.

From small beginnings in a facility no bigger than a 128sq.ft single garage in Blyth with two employee’s, HTL has enjoyed a incredible journey of growth over the past two decades to become a recognised industry leader in many industries.

Founder Ray Jones, employed his Nephew as his first employee in 1996, and today HTL continues to remain a family run business with several family members including Ray holding key positions within the company.

Now with eight global facilities and an extensive product and service portfolio, HTL distributes its product lines to over 40 countries and is considered the largest European independent privately owned supplier to the Controlled Bolting Sector.

It all started by supplying a small range of Hydraulic Torque Wrenches to the Oil and Gas Industry, and has grown to offer a complete range of customer first solutions to a variety of sectors including Power Generation, Renewable Energy, Subsea & Decommissioning, Chemical, Heavy Engineering and the Construction Industry.

With tens of thousands of stock items readily available at HTL’s impressive 65,300sq.ft Cramlington Corporate HQ, coupled with unrivalled bolting expertise, the once small supplier has one of the largest rental fleets in Europe; a true example of their commitment to deliver second to none customer service.

HTL Founder Ray Jones comments: “It has been an incredible journey and the initial enthusiasm and commitment that empowered HTL 20 years ago is just as present as it ever has been with all HTL staff across our global entities.”

To celebrate the occasion, HTL have opened a VIP invitation to visit their Corporate HQ in Cramlington, Northumberland which includes an exclusive tour of HTL’s impressive facilities along with lunch and refreshments. To register your interest please visit
