Mission Statement...

Valves Instruments Plus provide quality yet affordable products that meet our customers’ requirements, whilst offering excellent after sales service. We will also strive continually improve our products and service in order to maintain our high level of customer satisfaction.

About Us...

Formed in 1985, Valves Instruments Plus (VIP) has earned a reputation for setting the standards in quality, service and reliability while supplying a wide range of industries. Originally trading in the Strangeways area of Manchester, the unit was outgrown within 5 years and the company moved to larger premises in Newton Heath. In 2001 we acquired the business of F Ashton (ES) Ltd – an established Engineers merchant who had traded from 1922 – and combined both operations in the new premises back in our Strangeways home. Our continued growth as a company has seen us to outgrow our premises yet again, as we moved to our current home at Chaddock Lane in Astley, from which VIP continues its high standards of customer service and excellence to this day.


Valves Instruments Plus has a extensive product portfolio of Engineering and Plumbing, our range includes:

  • Valves
