We work with manufacturers who share our collaborative working style and passion for finding new answers to long standing problems and creating new markets through a partnership approach with our customers.
Having spent 5 years previously running a company focussed on the supply of low cost pneumatic components, James Devereux realised that something was missing. James wanted to really help his customers in a way that saving a few percent on components could never achieve. He wanted to be able to understand his customers challenges and opportunities and work with them to bring solutions that made a difference to their business either through a reduced cost of ownership or by providing a technical advantage.
Looking around for a supplier that shared the same values, James found MAC Valves and PHD Inc and with the award of sole distribution rights for the UK, Pneumatic Solutions International Ltd was formed.
Starting out in a small unit in Waterlooville with just 6 employees we had managed to collate an extensive experience of pneumatic applications across a wide range of industries were able to grow rapidly in our first few years, acquiring clients that have stayed with us to this day.
Within a year, to support the growth we had added a team of 4 regional sales engineers across the country dedicated to supporting our existing clients with their existing engineering applications, as well as assisting new clients in developing and solving manufacturing and production issues.
By 2005, new projects and opportunities lead to the addition of a Value Add capability which enabled the supply of kits and assemblies but also extended to small control system solutions. Over the next few years, the closer engagement with our customers and the growing complexity of the solutions we were providing, resulted in the addition of several other manufacturers of pneumatic and related products. Our product range grew both strategically with suppliers who embraced our approach of being a solution provider, and organically to enable access to a comprehensive list equipment in support of our customers’ needs.
By 2012, with 18 staff we were bursting at the seams of our small rented industrial unit so when the opportunity to purchase two attached units on the same estate came up, we seized the opportunity to create a space that was more aligned to our needs with a dedicated and much larger facility for production and space to house our expanding engineering and sales support teams. The additional space provided a platform for growth, and we accelerated our expansion within the rail industry following the development of some very innovative door, toilet and air filtration solutions.
We had expanded year on year and by 2016 we needed more space again. Our value add services had grown significantly so we purchased an additional two industrial units to add warehousing space and include a dedicated overhaul facility which has allowed us to separate it out from the clean build areas, further enhancing the quality of our environment and the solutions that we are able to provide.
Today we are a team of 25 and growing, we are proud of our reputation for being able to not only supply absolutely top quality products that can operate at the very highest, and sometimes extreme, engineering parameters, but also of our ability to work with our customers to deliver exceptional results. This focus on our customers’ needs has lead us to a position where pneumatics is no longer the primary focus of our capability. While it remains an area that we have significant expertise, we are now able to deliver solutions covering gas, liquid, vacuum and vibration requirements. We have mechanical, electrical, electronic and control engineering capability and formal project and quality management capacity with experience working within the most challenging of environmental and industry certification constraints.
In recognition of our ongoing development, Pneumatic Solutions International Ltd had been starting to feel like it didn’t really fit the company anymore, so after much deliberation 2018 kicked off a new chapter as we rebranded to PSI Technologies Ltd. A sharper focus on who we are and how we help our clients allowed us to clearly define our core values, to take a strategic view on our product line card and more accurately position ourselves with the market.
PSI Technologies is your best resource for innovative, engineering solutions to your technical and business challenges. Whether you need to resolve an existing production or technical problem, or if you are imagineering a solution for an innovative new product, PSI Technologies has the expertise and flexibility to enable you to deliver on your vision.
A pivotal start to the year as we found ourselves at the outbreak of Covid-19 working around the clock on the Government’s “ventilator challenge”, along with Dyson; a project completed in 6 weeks from a blank sheet of paper and a whole lot of brain and engineering work. Collaborating with MAC Valves, solenoid valves were specially designed by PSI in order to ‘fit’ the oxygen regulators and then produced and shipped in their 1,000’s; all during lockdown.
Soon after, the PSI engineering team worked on developing a cobot prototype designed to help protect NHS staff as they took samples at drive in centres. This was the start of our work with UV light (the components parts of which we’ve manufactured and tested for many years for one of the largest UV machine manufacturers) and its use as an effective sterilisation product against SARS-CoV-2.
