Alpeco celebrates 40 years in business


Along with the introduction of the Ford Fiesta, Red Rum completing the Grand National hat trick and the Queen’s Silver Jubilee, 1977 saw the launch of Alpeco Ltd as a supplier of high quality liquid handling equipment to the downstream petroleum distribution market.

After twenty years as a family-owned company, Alpeco became part of the Flowmax Group in 1997 and has continued to go from strength to strength.

Working with high quality products from Liquid Controls, Blackmer, Vega and OCV Alpeco has built a solid reputation as one of the UK’s leading suppliers of tanker metering and associated loading and unloading equipment to fuel companies across UK, Ireland and overseas.

Over the years our engineering team have worked on a wide range of custom projects across many industries and developed innovative new products to increase reliability and safety including the EDLODS IBC fuel dispensing system, Actiman Bottom Loading Manifold and CHECKMATE fuel control system.

Our service team have built an excellent reputation in the industry over the years and our team of professionally qualified service engineers can be called upon to carry out infield service, repair work and calibration anywhere in the UK.

We would like to thank all our customers, both old and new, for all their support over the years.
