Schwer Fittings Ltd

Company Background

Having been involved in the manufacture of stainless steel fittings for over 40 years, the German based company has an ongoing goal of producing high quality, precise, stainless steel, tube and hose connectors and adapters, whilst on-going developments and improvements keep it at the fore front of the marketplace.

Schwer Fittings Ltd started in Warrington in 1994, twenty years later as an established and still growing company, the UK branch continues to improve, innovate and, most importantly, manufacture.

Recent improvements include expanding into the adjacent building, provision of an updated trade counter, purchase of new CNC machinery and a bending machine.

The latest developments are the provision of a training room and testing facilities for hose assemblies. 2015 will see the roll out of assembly testing, so that customers can be assured of a hose & fitting match; and the provision of training courses in Warrington.

Products

Specialists in stainless steel connection technology, Schwer offers a wide range of fittings, including single and twin ferrule compression fittings, hose end fittings, including interlock, (BSP, NPT, metric, ORFS & JIC), hydraulic adapters (BSP, NPT metric & JIC), screwed fittings and valves.

Increased stock in the UK allows for next day delivery for most items, with a further, short-lead time, service available from German stock.

The investment in new machinery allows for start-to-finish production of hose tails, in Warrington; thus improving lead times, availability and unit costs.

Quality Management

Uniquely, all Schwer products are laser marked, this number allows for complete traceability from the raw material, to the machine used for production. Item specific 3.1b certificates and test reports, may be supplied up to ten years after manufacture.

Schwer holds many quality certificates including ISO 9001 & 14001, Lloyds, DNV, ABS and DVGW.

Combing a highly skilled workforce and cutting edge CAD design with the newest machine technology, Schwer produces the highest quality products, all of which are subjected to rigorous testing from raw material through production, to despatch.

Expertise and Technical Support

The team in the UK has grown from three to nearly 30, reflecting the company’s success and growth. With many years’ experience and knowledge the team is equipped to provide a continuously improving service, both over the phone and on site.

Schwer’s new web site now offers product search, downloadable certificates and technical information, whilst paper catalogues are also available from the Warrington office. We look forward to hearing from you.
