Established over 75 years ago, we have grown to become one of the most respected names in the supply of Pipeline Equipment to the Oil and Gas Industry. All along, we have maintained a commitment to high quality and traditional values, the principles originally introduced by the company's founder, Alexander Cardew himself.




During the Second World War and through to the 1960's Alexander Cardew was renowned in the UK market as a supplier of high quality structural steel and large-scale castings. Many British Power Stations and several airport terminals were built around steel fabrications supplied via Cardews.


The discovery of oil in the North Sea in the early 70's had a profound effect on the company when local demand for quality pipeline products grew rapidly. Alexander Cardew's response to these changing demands combined with our existing expertise and reputation for quality to ensure our success within this new industry.


For the past 30 years, we have been committed to the Pipeline Industry in all its forms: Oil, Gas, Water, Chemical and Sewage. In this time, we have flourished and diversified, continuously extending our product range to meet your needs.



Today we supply everything from pigging systems and clamping equipment to the pipe itself. We supply goods from the UK, the rest of Europe, and the United States. Dedicated to delivering the right solutions, the technical expertise of our staff allows us to offer a unique level of support and advice.
