2,000 reasons for success
The AES Engineering Ltd group, including AESSEAL and AVT Reliability, has taken on its 2,000th employee worldwide, as its global expansion continues.
Over the past few years, the group has accelerated its growth by investing in people as well as in the latest robotic and AI-powered technology at AESSEAL’s recently completed “Factory for the Future” in Rotherham, in South Yorkshire, and through global acquisitions and partnerships.
The group’s goal is to become “the leading global reliability business, delivering solutions to help industry save water, energy, cut pollution and create a better world.”
Managing director, Chris Rea, acknowledging that the global workforce had now passed 2,000, said the company goal was not to be the biggest, but to be the best. “We welcome all the new members of the AES ‘family’, as we need the best possible people to give the exceptional customer service that drives our success.” The group, headquartered in Rotherham in the UK, is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of mechanical seals used in all types of industry and is a leading advocate of environmentally friendly investment to reduce pollution, lower carbon emissions, and cut water use.
AES has been audited as Net Zero on its direct and indirect energy use since 2021 and continues to demonstrate that its positive environmental impact, helping global customers, exceeds supply chain emissions. This gives it the unique status among major engineering companies of having achieved Net Zero on all environmental scopes.
AESSEAL, the group’s main global brand, was founded in 1979, with a handful of staff. It now operates from more than 231 locations in 104 countries, and holds, in addition to its engineered product portfolio, the world’s most comprehensive standard inventory portfolio of mechanical seals, bearing protectors, seal support systems, and packing.
Acquisitions in Canada, Australia, Chile, and most recently a strategic partnership in Japan, joining forces with Torishima Japan Co., Ltd. have contributed to AES Engineering’s continuing expansion.
