Pegler Yorkshire is a British manufacturer of valves and other engineering products. Pegler Yorkshire is well known and respected as one of the leading manufacturers of advance plumbing, heating and engineering products in the world. It’s a reputation earned through a total dedication to quality innovation and customer service that’s been the hallmark of the company since it was established in the 1890’s.
It is part of the Flow Control division of Aalberts Industries. The "Yorkshire" brand of plumbing fittings belonged to Yorkshire Copper Works Ltd of Leeds. This company was founded in 1909 on the site of the former Elmore's Depositing Co., to manufacture copper and brass tubes for boilers. The company developed corrosion-resistant alloy products such as "Bemal" brass condenser tubes, "Leespec" copper boiler tubes and "Gumal" copper/tin tubes. In 1934, the "Yorkshire" solder-ring pipe fitting was patented and launched. In 1954, the Register of Trade Marks ruled that a geographical name such as "Yorkshire" was not sufficiently distinctive to be registered as a brand name, but this did not stop it becoming a generic term for this type of pipe fitting.
