About Us 

We're a company that has been driven by a clear purpose for over 130 years. Today, this purpose remains: to engineer a more efficient, safer and sustainable world, for everyone. From small beginnings as a General Merchant business in London in 1888, we first listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1959 and today, we are proud to be in the FTSE 100 index. We are a world-leading, multi-national industrial engineering Group of nearly 8,000 employees serving customers in 130 countries.

Our business comprises three specialist engineering businesses each combining expert knowledge with industry-leading products. Our technologies play a critical role across a wide range of industries including food and beverage, pharmaceuticals and power generation. In fact, wherever you live in the world, we provide the engineered solutions that sit behind the production of many of the items people rely on every day.

Our Employees 

Our strategy and business model help us to achieve our purpose. Our success also depends on our culture. It's something that's guided by our shared values and means we promise our colleagues challenging work with real impact and the chance for development every day. All of this is best achieved in supportive teams with strong relationships. Those sorts of teams and relationships enable all of us to better understand and help each other. They empower us to be our best, authentic selves and to achieve our full potential.

Inclusion is central to all of this. It runs through every one of our values. It's central to the promises we make to our colleagues. It's critical to achieving our purpose. An inclusive, equitable and wellbeing-focused culture makes us stronger as individuals, as teams and as a Group.
