Glenthorpe Engineering Co Ltd was established in the UK in 1962 and have been manufacturing our own design high pressure rotary swivel couplings for use in applications ranging from industrial hose reels, jetting lances, plant equipment, mechanical diggers, horticulture & agricultural machinery, drainage cleaning machinery & flight simulators to name a few.

Our couplings are manufactured, designed and assembled by us at our factory in Teddington, England and all our couplings are pressure tested prior to dispatch to ensure that our swivel couplings are fully functional and leak free before they reach the customer.

All manufacturing is done in-house by way of modern high production CNC machinery. Assembly and pressure testing is also carried out in our factory by hand by our skilled assembly operatives with particular attention to quality control.
